30x40 inch oil painting. (LOOK how tiny my initials on the right look!)
One of my favorite scenes, which I personally witnessed and can produce the photo - I have painted this before but never this big. The paint is thick especially in the cloud area, and when I look at the water it brings me right back to the beach I was walking that day.
It was a difficult time. I didn't know how I could manage more... more... more.. you've been there? Well, in a prayer, I asked for a sign... a sign to help me gather strength, a sign of love and support... and I looked up, and no kidding.... It looked impossible. All of a sudden the beach was empty (it was September, but there had been other walkers besides me) and I stood, slack-jawed... and thought... "Yup, I can do it..." and I did, and came through it.
This will be at my Open Studio - along with fun little paintings which are inspired by the foam edges of the gentle laps of the water nearby. They are coated with resin, which makes a rock-hard-glassy barrier.. and makes the colors just sing!
If you follow my blog, and come to my Open Studio - TELL ME or the person at the 'desk', and I will enter you in a raffle for a FREE resin-foam/bubbles painting! (you'll just have to put your address on your entry so I can ship it - also free - to the winner, hopefully YOU.)
Example of Foam/Bubble painting before the resin coating:
Last year I had Blog friends from every state in New England, and more - it was such a great thing!
Good LUCK!Pin It
