These Maine paintings are Not For Sale, because I keep them as a visual record of my painting trips. On the back I try to note the month, year and location. I need to start adding the other artists that I am with. You never know when someone will get famous :)
On a path behind the farmhouse we stayed at there was a sign that said "Free Buoys" with a small pile of 'found' buoys - those that somehow get free of their tethers and float to shore for the beach walkers to find. My friend Sally Dean picked these three (and gave me the blue and yellow one) to take home, plus one orange and white one. I had a heck of a time painting the fluorescent orange - if any of you know the color recipe for that, I'm all ears.
*this is my favorite painting from the trip*
So... in addition to the 3 pair of earrings, 2 art books and the buoy, my 'souvenirs' included smooth beach rocks for my garden. Soon: The photo of my Cosmos's and the recipe!
