Hello to Lebanon and Norway!

I'm pretty sure today is the first time my website has had a visitor from Lebanon so a hearty hello to you!  I think Turkey is as close as I've come to having Middle Eastern guests to my site (if you don't count my lovely little sis-in-law who I could go on and on about and never tire...).

I think my painting entitled, "Swell" has found a new home.  I was going to place that piece in the Maine cottage, but it may be a little too serious, so I've putting my lobstermen painting there in it's place.  They are about the same size, and I really need to tie some colors into the room and "Swell" , although it's my favorite piece of 2016/2017, isn't as whimsical as I think I need in that cottage.  Also, a little too much blue/green as the walls are a Benjamin Moore shade called, "Barely Teal".  That would be too little contrast.

I have a ton going on here with the other compartmentalized categories of my life and have been painting less this month than I intended.  I can assure you big things are happening around here, I just can't share yet, but all good!

Thank you to Jacksonville, Florida for your interest in Swell!

Below is a newish photo that I will be using as inspiration for my next interpretive abstract piece...that is, after my current piece is done....

I took this on a Maine beach near the cottage I'm working on.  Is that not the coolest system of roots or what?

It is soooo hot here!  I'm about to shrivel up!  If it weren't for an unending supply of iced tea, I'd look like a golden raisin after only three days of this heat and humidity.  95 degrees is not my favorite.

Thank you for visiting my blog and please stop back soon!
