Kind of weird to be painting a summer scene with a fresh foot of snow outside! This is a commission. I have painted variations of this scene throughout the years. Apparently this beach is now completely gone due to erosion, storms and earth shifts. I hope the painting is well received. Time to go and shovel.

I am painting and hanging out with a dear old friend JANE REED. She is a beautiful painter and I am humbly painting along with her in the wild west

12x12 acrylic on board

These last 2  are Jane's pieces. What a mentor!
She also has a fabulous art collection and 3 of them in this home are by Becky Joy!!! and they are gorgeous

The paintings in my studio had better hide if they don't want to be touched up and changed...I am on a rampage, I think this one was begging for a little more punch. What do you think?

Today I played around with a palette knife. It is so cold here in New England that even the pears are shaking

The South Shore Art Center is calling artists to enter paintings that depict MOTION. I painted this large piece from a small painting done in California last month. Cars are a big challenge for me.
