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.

Tasty Burger 18"x24"

Today is the "Hingham Arts Walk" and I will be participating with my fellow painters from "Girls Just Wanna Paint" at the Community Center. It's a great event, all the merchants host an artist and it's such a pleasant way to get some art into your afternoon. This will be dispayed as WIP...still want to tweak it, but I like it enough to exhibit it.

Them Apples 12"x12"

This is a demo I did recently for the Braintree Art Association. I hadn't done a demo in a while so I wanted to keep a basic subject and 4 apples seemed to work.

'73 Bronco, On Top of the World 18"x18"

For this month's Girls Just Wanna Paint challenge: "Man's Best Friend," I chose to paint my husband's former Ford Bronco, V-8, 302, 2 gas tanks....it seemed like it could go just about anywhere.
