Calm Morning In Maine, 8x6 in acrylic by Kelley Carey MacDonald
Today my art quote is:
Painting is a language which cannot be replaced by another language. I don't know what to say about what I paint, really. - Balthus

Molly's Flowers, 6x12, Acrylic by Kelley Carey MacDonald
Well I am back from my annual painting trip to Maine - and what an adventure it was! First, let me say that I REMEMBERED to pack the martini glasses, the Vodka, and the limes - but I FORGOT my painting bag! So... misadventure after mishap got my paints mailed to me and I received them on Thursday night. My wonderful painting buddies lent me oils, and I dared to try gouache - only I bought cheap paints because I ALREADY have a nice set of gouache (which is opaque watercolor paint) at home. Here's a lesson - no paint at all is better than cheap paint. This week I'll share some of the paintings I managed to do, but it was a wonderful regenerative, restorative and relaxing week with dance-till-your-legs ache friends! I sketched a lot and thought a lot and I think maybe it was IN THE CARDS that I not paint so ferociously last week.
This little painting was done on my daughter's screened in porch. It can be yours for $195 if you email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I was babysitting my grand dog and grand cat and was on a high from getting our tickets for the San Miguel Painting Workshop and also our room - Paula and I are having such fun planning this! Find out about it and see if you can join us Feb. 26 - March 1, 2019 in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. All medium, all levels. Check it out HERE.
