Side tracked thoughts

I wish I didn't get side tracked so easily. Today I went to Worlds End, Boston Harbor. Oh how I love anything to do with the ocean/surroundings. In all the years living in the area, I never visited the local treasures. My daughter brought all these to my attention–What have I miss all these years? Anything with the ocean just melts my being. I have so many fond memories of being near the ocean that I could dwell on them forever. No, to many more to enjoy. I have to do my paintings one at a time... forever.

Rhode Island Watercolor Society Show

Our Show opening at the Rhode Island Watercolor Society, June 5th, was great. Lots of people came in and I heard positive statements about the work displayed. Three rooms of art to ponder over. The Rhode Island Watercolor Society is in a park setting and is in an old beautiful boat house on a pond. The day was perfect and the park was filled with people enjoying the day. Across the street from the society is a carousel which children of all ages enjoy. It's a place inside a city which is far removed. If you are in the area, please stop by and enjoy this nice part of Rhode Island.

Picking is a hard

Picking 10 or more paintings for an upcoming show is proving to be difficult. When you have drawers full of unmatted and unframed paintings, it is hard to pick. Some have personal meanings and are hard to put up for sale. Should I put a high price on them, just to show them and hoping they won't sell. After you have painted a number of paintings, it gets to a point where you have to sell some to continue--they are part of you...and you wish them well.
In this show/sale, there will be paintings from my last 30 years. I think they will look like paintings from several artists. I will try to post the final selections in June.

A Good Life

People do have to eat. As long as the animals have some kind of a good life, then , I don't know...as long as they don't suffer...

I Love Maine

The Maine Coast is a wonderfull place. I could just stay there all the time.
This painting gives me the feeling of being there. The cold water, the crisp air...nothing like it.

I use to drive past this gate. Too bad it is gone. Some people just don't know what they have. I hope they bring it back.
