Coastal Ledge, 10x12
Now That I Have....
......my ticket I can begin to get excited about my almost annual trip to the Maine coast....interrupted last year by going to Italy. It's a tough life but I'm doing my best to keep up.
I love painting in Maine. It has all kinds of quirky twists and turns and the fiberglass luxury yachts take a back seat to real working boats, net sheds, farms and towns with as much anglo history and dignity as can be found anywhere in this country. Interesting shapes and color are everywhere.
With that in mind I thought I'd post this painting of rocks at a beach I don't remember exactly how to get to anymore. I think I did it two years ago. Check out those big and little shapes of color that bounce around everywhere. Mostly variations of blues and reds except for that green ribbon weaving itself from side to side. Immensely satisfying to me. I wish more of my paintings had the qualities of this one.
So think of me during the last half of September working away on as many paintings and drawings as I energy for....but with a smile on my face.
Thanks for looking....
