Calm Morning In Maine, 8x6 in acrylic by Kelley Carey MacDonald

"Calm Morning In Maine" 8x6 Acrylic by Kelley Carey MacDonald
SOLD

Our GirlsJustWannaPaint topic for this month was "CALM".  Who can't use some of THAT?  I have photographed this buoy for years at our painting retreat in Maine - something about that orange/pink buoy bobbing gently in the water just does it for me. I really enjoyed doing the 'push and pull' of the lights and darks in the water, and I intentionally abstracted the foliage on the far shore.  
As the 4th of July approaches - I wish for all of you a sense of pride, joy and CALM.  :D

Today my art quote is:
Painting is a language which cannot be replaced by another language.  I don't know what to say about what I paint, really.  - Balthus
