"The Magical Mystery Tour Is Hoping To Take You Away!"


"Hoping to take you away.  Take you away!"
The Beatles

Watercolor 12" x 16"


This started out as a very calm New England Cranberry Bog scene. It seemed a bit boring.  The painting or maybe I  needed some excitement! I guess we both got some.  I  especially love the colors, the textures, and the mystical design.  Great fun!

  1. Wow! I love the colors! Did you use salt? It is magical. Also, I hope you sold lots of your lovely slate tile paintings : )

      Thank you so very much for your wonderful comments. Made my day!
      Yes, I did use salt. I think it does wonders when it mixes with the watercolors! (Can't use it on food anymore!)
      I did sell quite a few slates and we made quite a bit of money for the American Society! Thanks for your support!

    1. Hi Joan!
      Thanks so much for pointing out the color and energy in this piece! Painting it was great fun.
      I did sell a good amount of art work at the show. Making money for the American Cancer Society is always a good thing.
      Take care.

  4. WOW! I wish I could up the points on that wow. This is so different for you. I love that you let loose. I can tell it's a landscape that got you excited and your joy shows in the painting.

      Thank you for your "Wow!" Your comment made me smile. Thanks!
      It is fun to let oneself go!
      Isn't "joy" a great thing!
      Take care.

    1. Susan,
      Thank you for dropping in and writing such a very kind comment!
      I so much appreciate hearing from you and all the other very fine blog artists out there.
      I love swirling colors! I am happy you noticed them. (Some of my "Waves/Ocean" paintings that I posted some time ago also have that swirling sensation that I love soooooo much to paint!)
      I love your blog and look forward to it every day!
      Keep painting.
      Michael
