Chillin', 6x12 Inch Oil Painting by Kelley Macdonald

I've been struggling for a few days.  Many, many, wipe-offs.  Then I thought I'd start this painting from an image I really liked, and it literally 'fell off the brush'.  I really, really like it.  I'm conflicted as to what to do with it, as I painted it for a gallery… but I would also like to paint it larger.  Much larger.  And just putting it on Facebook has brought inquiries (and 107 'likes') literally within minutes of posting it.

So… my very wise husband says when you don't know what to do, doing nothing will reveal what you SHOULD do.  So, tonight I"m posting this just to show you I haven't been slacking off… and I'll decide what to do with it soon!


  1. Bonjour chère amie,
    Un bien joli trio...
    Gros bisous ❀ ❁ ❤︎ ❤︎ ❤︎ ❁ ❀

  2. Oh I do love the narrow wide format here. The reflections are fabulous and instantly bring back times of taking my girls to the ocean when they were little. Sigh... Beautiful, Kelley!

  3. Great reflections Kelley. I've been wiping off a lot with the oils these days. But I get right down to business when I use my watercolors. I understand the need for it to bee something you really love.

  4. Really really like this also, Kelley!

  5. Dear Kelly - this is beautiful. A large painting would be wonderful but this is superb as well. Isn't it strange how some things come so easy and others so hard when one tries to capture them. This does look like it was effortless (I am sure not quite) but that is a good thing. Thanks for stopping to visit me too. Hope you have a great week.

  6. This is wonderful. I love the reflections.


Awww THANKS for leaving a comment! You KNOW I love to hear from you!
