A Good Day Ahead,, 7x5 inch acrylic painting by Kelley MacDonald

Well, THIS month has certainly flown by!  Here we are, knee deep in Summer!  I've been cleaning out, packing and paring down, ready for a move.  But Girls Just Wanna Paint posts our new paintings today - and this month's topic was "Bathing Beauties".  Here are two iconic women of a 'certain age', with all the privileges that go with that age, meaning acceptance of who we are, and spending the occasional day as we see fit.  Two friends spending a day at the beach, with a good book, a cool drink and sunscreen - pretty perfect.  Goofy hats optional.

I've made new space in my house to paint - the living room option just wasn't cutting it for me - if you can believe it, too much light, coming in from all directions.  I have a small north-east facing room upstairs now that I have claimed while we are still here, and it feels wonderful.  So, as I tackle the attic, the basement and the mountains of accumulated things from 3 generations, I will be taking refreshing painting breaks here:

Why didn't I do this sooner?


  1. Oy...moving! Great work here, Kelley. Better these two ladies in suits than me! LoL Good luck with your move!

  2. So fun Kelley! You captured their posture so well. I like your studio set up. I am behind the times.....have you put your house on the market or are preparing to? Sounds like a huge feat. Good luck with all!

  3. the studio is fabulous and the painting is great.

  4. Didn't know you were moving. Love this painting.

  5. Lovely and peaceful studio... beautiful and calm amid all you have going on in life.
