Some of you asked to see the painting that got 1st prize at South Shore Art Festival
this weekend - no, it wasn't a jelly donut, it was a painting of my pottery from Mexico. Weird thing, the juror's comments were that he/she (I forget) liked the lemon and lime on the left side of the painting. Yikes - I ALMOST painted them 'out' before submitting this! It was so great to see my friends, (I had a friend drive for 2 hours on what should have been a 45 minute ride, and one of my sons spent THREE hours sitting in Boston traffic to get here, only to miss the ceremony by 20 minutes. My husband's plane was late leaving, so he missed it, too) and Mary Sheehan Winn
kindly became my photographer! Valerie Vitali, an amazing, inspiring painter, friend, and my very first oil painting instructor, gave me a gorgeous bouquet! After a scrumptious dinner at my favorite Chinese restaurant, I came home to this, below while I walked Paco.
And JUST TO PROVE that SOMETIMES I act in a domestic fashion, this is what I made for dinner last night: homemade jerk chicken and grilled sweet glazed grilled bananas... mmmMMmm wish you all could have come and eaten it on the front porch with the above view!
Couple more things: First, if you are on the South Shore and want to see some of my recent Daily Paintings, they are at Oceanside17 Gallery
, 17 Rockland Circle, Hull, MA.
AND I'm on a painting trip with 7 fabulous artists in MAINE, all next week. Internet is difficult. I'll try to post, but will return with, hopefully, lots of new work!
