Pocket Treasure, 6x6 Inch Acrylic by Kelley MacDonald

Tonight I had the great pleasure of doing a demo at the Foxboro Art Association.  I love doing demos because I always get to meet such great people.  These are serious artists and they had good questions, and there seemed to be a number of connections we had in common.  No, thesis not what I painted - I painted this on a retreat in Maine recently, with good girlfriend time (oh, and good Pug time I should add) and sweet time at the lake.  Tonight I did a donut painting.  A bit of spiffing up and I'll share it here.

My Dad always had hard candies in his pocket.  That is one reason I love to paint them.  Also... you know how you just get a tickle in your throat when you just shouldn't be making any noise?  Yeah, these are great for those times.

Hopper's Light, 8x10 inch Acrylic by Kelley MacDonald

Well, it's the 1st of the month, and that means Girls Just Wanna Paint!  This month Mary Sheehan Winn chose the theme "Paint Like A Famous Artist".  I was stumped, stymied and s-l-o-w.  I've always loved Hopper, and his bare, lonely lighthouse paintings, so here we are.  I'll tell you trying to copy another artist's work is so much more difficult than doing it yourself!  But I do learn, every single time I do things like this.  This speaks to me of every lighthouse I've visited.  Especially Maine, where Hopper took a lot of inspiration.  I love everywhere he painted.  Anyway, it's an 8x10 on gallery wrapped canvas (no need to frame).  I can't ship it till after our monthly meeting on the 6th, so bear that in mind!  Stay safe if you're in hurricane areas!
