"I Am Back, Well Almost Back!"

Because of the pain caused by a severe shoulder injury I haven't been able to paint much  the last few months.
Paintings shown here are a little attempt to do some work despite the pain.  Hopefully on the mend soon!

"Boston" Acrylic 30" x 36" Canvas
(When in doubt always paint Boston Skyline again!)

"East Boston Neighborhood" Acrylic 30" x 36" Canvas
(Almost finished for client!  Injured shoulder hampering and slowing the progress!)

"Ocean" Acrylic CAnvas 24" x 30"
(Always feel like painting the sea!)

"Ocean" Acrylic Canvas 24" x 30"
( I could paint wild ocean scenes forever!)

Finally some spring in my little corner of the planet!

I so love all the seasons! Each certainly has its own beauty!

Almost a jungle!

Love this one!  Last winter this six foot high light pole was covered in snow!

Love red geraniums! Very patriotic

Had a little visitor last week!  Love this red fox!

Hope all are well!
Thanks for stopping by!
Please make my day and leave a comment!
Take care!

Officially Spring?


March 21, 2015

First Full Day Of Spring In USA!

Officially Spring in the USA!
Somebody should notify the weather!
Woke this morning to more snow!
Boston broke all time snow record!  109.1 inches!
Not able to paint much lately!  Hurt my shoulder! Maybe too much snow shoveling and snow roof raking!
Hope to soon get to all my art blogging buddies' blogs to write comments.
Miss painting so much!
(Still love the snow!)

"Snow" Acrylic 20" x 30" Canvas

"Snow" Acrylic 20" x 30" Canvas

 Heavy amounts of snow on roofs causing very dangerous situations in Massachusetts!  Many roofs have already collapsed due to the weight of the snow!  Photo of our house with workers shoveling snow off our roof!  Still love the snow but also so aware of its dangers and  problems!

"Some Art And Some Snow!"




Art And Snow This Week!


"East Boston Neighborhood #1"
Acrylic 24" x 36" Canvas

Unfinished
Currently working on a few commissioned works of East Boston Cityscapes!
I love to do the same scene on two different canvas and experiment with various colors and techniques!


"East Boston Neighborhood #2"
Acrylic 24" x 36" Canvas

Unfinished


"East Boston Blue Subway Line"
Canvas Board 18" x 20"
Still working on this piece! 

"Colorful East Boston Triple Deckers"
Acrylic Canvas Board 18" x 20"
Unfinished!  
Recent record snow storms dropped almost  four feet of snow in our area in less than a week!
Another foot predicted over the weekend!

My brother-in-law's horse loves running in the snow! 

Our front door lantern!



Our snow covered road!
 This scene is of a huge wave crashing on a seawall on the South Coast of Massachusetts. Snow storms can be so very beautiful and so very dangerous!

One brave soul battled the elements to shovel off the snow from the Boston Marathon Finish Line! We Bostonians certainly think of this site as sacred ground!  I so love the idea that this man wanted to honor the finish line this way!


I  love firefighters!  
 Eerie not see any vehicles on the streets of Boston!

New England Patriots Superbowl Champions!







Beautiful! 


Beautiful!

Home Sweet Home!

"Appeal To The Great Spirit!"


Acrylic Canvas Board 14" x 20"
I so love the statue of "The Appeal To The Great Spirit" in front of Boston's Museum Of Fine Arts!  I finally decided to paint it!  


i Pad
Thanks to Linda Roth I tried the i pad's app ArtRage to do a quick plein air of "The Appeal To The Great Spirit!"  Much fun! I so need to learn how to use all the wonderful painting tools!

Middleboro, MA, USA,  Nemasket River Winter 2015
First real snow of the season!  Only five inches of the beautiful white stuff!  Still enough to create an awesome winter wonderland.
(Huge North Easter predicted for later this week!  Maybe 0ne to two feet of snow!  Yippee!)

Middleboro, MA, USA, Nemasket River Fall 2014
I thought it might be fun and interesting to see the same scene but during a different season!  I feel so lucky to leave in New England where we have four beautiful seasons!

"Happy Thanksgiving Plymouth Massachusetts USA!"

 Thought I would post some photos of Plymouth Harbor to commemorate this year's Thanksgiving holiday!
(I may have posted some of these photos last year?)
"Sail Boats Off Cape Cod"  Acrylic 20" x 24" Canvas

"Bug Light Plymouth Harbor" Oil 16" x 20" Canvas


Replica of the Mayflower. Ship that took Pilgrims to the New World in 1620

Portico that holds "Plymouth Rock!" Plymouth Rock is a symbol of the actual landing of the Mayflower in 1620!
(Pilgrims first landed in what is now Provincetown, Massachusetts but left after realizing the sand was not good for farming.  Crossed the bay over to what is now Plymouth, Massachusetts!)
Me, a while back, after catching a Cod Fish in Plymouth Harbor.
At the time of the Pilgrims Cod Fish was so plentiful that the  bay and the local area was called Cape Cod! Sad to say now there is a problem with the depletion of Cod in the area.  Not sure why.  Many think over fishing.  Maybe even Global Warming? Scientists and Fishermen still working hard to explain and solve problem.

Seeing humpback whales off Plymouth is a wonderful sight!

"Bug Light" Popular light house in Plymouth Bay!  I painted this lighthouse many times and in many ways!

Statue Of Massasoit! Great Chief Of The Wampanoags.  The local tribe that helped the Pilgrims survive that very dangerous and difficult first winter! This beautiful statue stands high on a hill overlooking Plymouth Harbor!
(This famous statue was made by Cyrus E. Dallin, the same talented sculptor who created "Appeal To The Great Spirit" which stands in front of the Museum Of 
Fine Arts in Boston!)
