beach scene and street corner


I've completed this 10x20" beach scene and am pretty pleased after having to repaint the bathing suit about three times!


Began this 12" square painting this week. It's still pretty cold outside here and everything looks gray and tired.....yesterday I gave up working after two hours because I could not get the studio warm enough and I just threw an unwitnessed tantrum and went in to the house and read a book the rest of the day. I haven't invested in a more powerful heater because it's usually not needed in this area (it is semitropical) and I don't want to waste the space it would take up. It's much better today and my out of sorts mood is gone!

I love the composition and feel for your struggle. We are in Texas now and it's all about rain rain rain! Spring will be here soon.

Thanks Anne..........I was there for 2 weeks in November and it was too wet to even take pictures! I suppose it's better than RI though after this winter - I sure didn't feel too nostalgic! Patty

It's good to hear that you've got a heater that suits you best, and with just the right thermal balance. That is always a great save, so you might as well maintain it for it to function for the long haul. Good going there, Patricia! Thanks for sharing that! All the best to you!
