It's really not Maggie's farm...but Maggie works there and she told me about it! The animals were doing what they do best, moving around (rather than pose for these sketches), but that was part of the challenge...and the fun....The colors didn't reproduce that well here, they are more vivid. (Thanks Connie for allowing me to paint at your lovely farm today)! The goat is 20"x24", the chickens 20"x20".

Janet's View-Work in Progress
This painting started off beautifully loose and became too uptight somehow. I'm not done with it just yet though....

McGoo's Pizzeria revised
Sometimes I look at my painting so long I need to take a break from it. There were a couple of issues I had with this painting when I posted it previously but I have made a couple of changes. (I won't say where...) I conversed with one of my studio mates via email about what to change and I had to laugh...it's kind of cool that we can send images and messages off electronically.

I used to drive past this building in Southie on my way to work some mornings. I have always loved looking at it but painting it was another story. I was standing on a hill opposite this building and the vantage point was challenging to say the least. I was looking up at parts of it and down at other parts while the road to the left, Dorchester Street sloped down and being one of those unique buildings I love so much...not all the windows are the same size! (at least on the storefront) Anyway, this one was not for sissies...and I should really try it again just to see how it comes out. I met alot of nice folks while I was painting it; that's one of the perks of plein air painting.

Jo's Nautical Bar
Jo's has been at the end of Hull for as long as I can remember. It's one of those quirky but charming places that become local landmarks and I liked this view with the windmill behind it. I've been told that they open and close at random hours and I have been in there a couple of times when they did happen to be open. It's a unique place.

A family friend asked if I would paint a picture of his late mother. This is from a photograph so I hope it conveys her appearance in a way that is pleasing to her family.
