"She Loved Getting Flowers"

2018 is coming to a close, and I really haven't posted much this year. I was so happy to receive these flowers last summer, make a painting of them, then sell it at a show at the end of the year. It was a nice way to transition into the upcoming year. Maybe 2019 will bring more paintings that bring other people joy and happiness.

Castle Island Afternoon 12"x12" on panel

Castle Island (seems more like a peninsula) juts out into Greater Boston Harbor with commanding waterside views of Boston and the boats and ships coming and going. Also of Logan Airport and its inbound and outbound flights, some of which feel as though they will land on your head! For me though, the beauty is in the immediate environs of people of all nationalities, cultures, neighborhoods, etc., happily walking and picnicing, grabbing a great hamburger (I think it's less than $5) from Sullivan's and just relaxing. I go there often on my lunch break from work. I chose this painting for this month's "Girls Just Wanna Paint" post "Paint a Quote."
My quote is:
"Blessed are they who see beautiful things in humble places where other people see nothing." -Camille Pissarro

"King of Beers" 12"x16"

For our monthly "Girls Just Wanna Paint" challenge with the theme "Frosty." My daughter and I were at a local joint ordering our usual pizza and this sad beer was sitting all alone on the bar. I felt it needed to be painted and it came along just at the right time for our challenge. Happy New Year.
