Beach Love


6x6 inches acrylic and ink on canvas $75 in the shop
Here is a small painting which in a fit of dealing with subzero weather, I painted.
It is sunny and yellow and makes me long for w
armer climes. Instead, we are heading to Boston which with the ocean factor, should be even colder than home. After yesterday's wind, and car shopping in the cold, Boston will be yummy!
No, no car as yet, but getting closer. Boston will bring some fun today. and at least the ocean will be close... albeit cold.

The word for the day is ... deal. as in I need to deal with it. the cold weather that is.

I'm in awe that you can run a gallery, host a fundraiser, raise a family... and still make art on a regular basis. Have fun in Boston!

I really love this work, new to your blog and wanted to say hi. This is wonderful, the color and textures and the happy (and warm looking) birds.
I'll be back soon.

Sweet birdies...they do have that daffodil color of spring! It was actually above freezing today here in NW CT, but still... I am so over this winter thing:>

Susan, I love this painting and I can so relate. We are bracing for yet another storm in oregon and yet we are so ready for some warmer trends. k

Amen sister-- we are in the precise same headspace-- although I wish I had painted 3 yellow birds!

I don't think my last comment went thru.

I love this Susan! Does this need to be framed or is it on stretcher bars?

susan said...

yes LL, it is on a stretched canvas. ready for framing if so desired!

What a lovely little painting. I'm going to be in NH in a few weeks to visit my Dad, I'd love to look at it in person. Where is the gallery?
