New paintings new fun art

 I recently got into sea creatures….and then I migrated over to cards, alcohol ink and junk journals, what fun! I think I needed a break from painting and it’s been fun not to be so precise in everything I do. Here’s a few pictures of my cards and my sea creatures.

 I guess the silver lining behind the pandemic is more time. More time to reflect, paint, spend time with close family. I know there has been a lot of heartache, missed opportunities, and time not spent with loved ones who live far away. I will be glad for a different world someday; one where we support each other and learn once again to be kind and respectful. In the meantime, here’s to hoping that we learn some valuable lessons along the way.

My pandemic paintings; I guess the sea brings me a sense of awe and wonder, freedom and peace all at the same time.

Time is fleeting

Time seems to be fleeting and the older I get, the faster it goes. A new year, and new beginning, a fresh start. As much as I do not like winter, it is usually a slower pace and a time to reflect, declutter, and catch up on projects left unattended throughout the frantic pace of summer. Here's what I have worked on in the past year. Not much to show, as we made a major move last year, leaving our beloved family home that we raised our 2 boys in, and taking on a new adventure in a different part of our state. We are now closer to the beach and amenities, but with that comes the added traffic and a longer commute to work for both of us. Ah well, no matter how long you search no place on earth is absolutely perfect. We are happy to have a new house, a smaller more manageable yard, more neighbors. I miss our big yard, the expanse of the woods. But I think our social life has grown since moving. As you can see, I've been kind of obsessed with rocks and water.

winter musings

 Winter is not my favorite time of the year. I tend to get moody, but if I keep exercising and painting, I make out better. Time with friends is really helpful. I went to Ireland last summer, here is another painting from our travels. The Dark Hedges was used in the Game of Thrones. I have not watched it, as I don't think I would like it!

 My oldest son asked for a painting of Tom Brady. I thought he was awfully good to think his mother could paint a decent picture of him! I guess he could always put it in his closet if he didn't like it. Tom's not done yet. I need to focus on some details yet.

Summer Travels

A trip to Ireland this summer was an amazing journey to a foreign land that didn't feel that foreign...we loved the whole country and the people. Only one painting so far has come from that trip, but I'm sure more will be painted soon!
Giants Causeway was one of my favorite stops; natural formations of stone that look like a giant playing with his blocks. Many hexagonal shapes and sizes. Ballycastle, Northern Ireland.
