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.
Misquamicut Beach, Rhode Island
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.
