SUNSET ~ ENDING THE YEAR 2014 to BEGIN AGAIN 2015

THREE NEW PAINTINGS

My inspiration for two of my three new paintings came from my nostalgic wanderings through old photos of people and places.

Many years ago, I walked along this beautiful stretch of Rhode Island coast whose beach sands stretched as far as the eye could see.  The sunsets were spectacular and I had captured many a photo of them.

Battenkill Fog.  Vermont days ~ I had ventured out early with my camera especially to capture fog rising along the river, thistles in bloom in a mauve haze.  The fog lends a aura of mystery that I love and pushes my imagination to mystical places.

China Beach Fishing   April 2014 – Walked the coast trail to China Beach, San Francisco. Misting and gray.   One of my photos taken along the way inspired the painting –

More strolls down memory lane on the agenda for 2015 – On the Easel now – sketch of Mykonos harbor in the evening light from a 1981 photo.   Through these paintings, I am appreciating where I’ve been, as well as my connections to people and places that have enriched my life.

2015 ~  May you fill it up with joy in living, loving, inspiration, passion and creative expression!  Peace and Blessings to all who visit here.

    • Thank You Nancy! Each painting is a challenge and I learn so much along the way. Maybe it is the California drought, but I am lately drawn to scenes of ocean and rivers!
