Velvet Fudge Shop 16×20 $900
This is my latest… a fudge shop on Mackinac Island. I gave it a good dose of whimsy. I’m shipping this painting to Lilacs & Lace Gallery on Mackinac Island today.
My sister and her husband are in town visiting from SC. We always have fun together… My sister and I even met up with old childhood friends. More than friends actually, our best friends, who also happen to be sisters. It was awesome!
Shem Creek Reflections 16x20 $900
This is the painting I did just because I felt like it. When I was visiting my sister in SC I took some great photos of the area. The reflections were so cool that day on the dock at Shem Creek in Mt. Pleasant, SC you could get lost in them. Can you see the difference from a carefully planned and executed painting to a free will painting? I like the free painting better myself.
My excuse for not posting for several days is… (drum roll) my computer had been replaced when I returned from South Carolina! It was a surprise and I’m grateful but it’s also the reason I’ve been putting off posting. Now I’m up and running. I know you all hadn’t expected an excuse this worthy but there it is. If anybody needs a list of excuses you can contact me… I have a huge one and it’s good. Very, very good. I thought about writing a book of excuses for people to use in their daily lives but couldn’t figure out a beginning paragraph so for the time I’m still a painter. Things could change…
I was so inspired after viewing all of the fantastic paintings in Charleston, I just had to paint BIG! You get so much bang for your buck in terms of the pieces’ presence in a room. Although I need to be concentrating on paintings for a show at the museum on Mackinac Island (which celebrates the 125th birthday of the Grand Hotel), but I have these woodsy themes in my system and I’m trying to purge them before I move on to another subject. I started another woodsy theme… let’s think what shall I name it…hmmm oh ya, probably Woods VI. I know, I know, original. Jeez, I can’t do everything.
