Tiny Paintings

Red Barn 4"x4"
oil on planel
It seems like winter is just going to hang on here in New England so this painting of a red barn in the not so long ago snow seems appropriate. I'm used to being a snowbird and yesterday as I walked the beach in wind whipping 45 (feels like 30) degrees, I thought about Naples but, it was 91 degrees there. Is there no happy medium?
This is a tiny painting and it's leading you to more tiny paintings by Sharon McGauley, an artist from Maine and the Cape. I love how her tiny paintings look so BIG!

Angel Foods

"Angel Foods"
12x12 oil on birch panel

Provincetown has always been a special place to me. Located at the very tip of Cape Cod and surrounded by dunes and water, its natural beauty and shimmering light have long attracted artists and seekers of nature.
My sister and her family lived there during the late 70's and early 80's and I have always found everything about this town, enchanting. 
visit regularly to paint and enjoy and to participate, in PAAM's member's shows and events. This is my submission to their annual 12x12 silent auction which runs from April 25th to June 26. 
"Angel Foods" is a funky market which is actually across the street from the Art Association. I always admire their front window and it seemed just the right format for my painting.

Bay of Fundy Monolith

Bay of Fundy Monolith
4x10 Watercolor

I've been working on hot pressed paper which I love for its smoothness but I bought a little 4x10 block of Arches 140 Cold Pressed paper and I found that I liked the way 
the paint takes to the surface. 
It may even be better.
Don and I are heading home to New England tomorrow. It's been a great and much needed get away.
