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!
now tell me again...what happened to your shoulder? I am so sorry you have had this issue! I can't believe how long it takes to recover from things once you are over 60 years old...it seems ridiculous (I know firsthand!) I love the paintings you have going here. I know you are resilient and that you'll be back 100% soon! Sending up positive healing thoughts for you!ReplyDelete
Hi Celeste! Not sure what happened!!! Doctors think it is an overuse injury! Also history of bad shoulders from high school and college football!!! You are certainly right about the healing process as we age! But I am happy to report I am on the mend! Not able to do much swimming laps for exercise yet but hopefully that will come back soon! I so love to swim! Thank you so much for all your support Celeste. Wonderful the great bonds formed from our art blogs! Thank you again Buddy!Delete
Love your art and your blog!
Your On The Mend Buddy!
Thanks for dropping in on my blog recently Michael, always a pleasure to hear from you. I'm glad you're enjoying the FIFA womens cup games:).ReplyDelete
So sorry to hear you've suffered with your shoulder for so long, and keeping away from what you enjoy so much, painting...that must be hard. I like what you're working on, and hope your shoulder improves soon.
You are so welcome Sally! I love your blog and your wonderful art! Good luck with your upcoming move! So adventurous! I so loved the games. Canada did a great job hosting the events in so many wonderful venues! I am back to some painting and feeling better! Thank you! Happy to see the young Canadian player win the youngest player trophy!Delete
Take care Sally!
I'm happy to see you back, Michael! I know what you might be going through, it is a slow process. I am happy your garden is in full bloom and you are picking up your brushes again. I have missed your beautiful paintings, love the Boston skyline! Many healing hugs!ReplyDelete
I am so happy that you are happy that I am back! Being happy is so very nice!!!
I am on the mend. You are right so slow and a bit frustrating! Thank you for all your wonderful support Celia and your very kind compliments! Makes me so happy!
While your shoulder has slowed you down, it hasn't hampered your paintings. Your strong feelings for the sea are clear on your energetic canvases and Boston is coming along great. It's nice to see some part of the country is having summer; Michigan is stuck in what seems to be a very long, wet spring. Hugs.ReplyDelete
Thank you Linda! Always great to hear from you! I do so love the sea! Could paint the ocean all day!!! I am so sorry the weather is not cooperating for you! Maybe you can send some rain to our art buddies in California! (Do you follow Avid Art by David Teter! Great watercolorist! He keeps us posted on the drought in Southern California! I love all the goings on at your blog! Need to write some comments ASAP!Delete
Take care Linda!
Michael, I am so glad to see that you are back on the road to painting. I know I would have been bursting at the seams if I wasn't able to paint for that long. Great starts on these. I especially like the energy of the one of the sea and the one of the "East Boston Neighborhood." Thanks for your continued visits to my blog. It is always a pleasure to see a comment from you!ReplyDelete
Thank you Joan! I can't imagine you not painting!!!!! I am so happy to be on the mend and painting a bit more! I am glad you like these works! I love your blog. I am always visiting it. Need to make time to write more comments though!Delete
Take care Joan!
Michael, I hope your shoulder continues to improve. You are doing great work despite the pain! Hope you have a lovely holiday weekend.ReplyDelete
Thank you so much Susan! Shoulder is improving! Thanks for all your support!Delete
I did have a great holiday weekend! How was yours? I love the Fourth Of July! Every year The Boston Pops puts on a great concert on the Esplanade on the Charles River! Fireworks and Patriotic Music! Nice! We used to go in when we were younger! Now family gets together for a cookout and then afterwards watch the concert on television!
Take care Susan! (I so love your wonderful paintings!!!)
I've wondered where you've been! So glad you are painting...heal quickly!ReplyDelete
Hello Kim!!!! Always thrilled to get a comment and visit from you! Thanks for your concern buddy! I am healing and painting much more! Thanks Kim! Love seeing your wonderful photo! Your smile always makes me happy! Also I love your art and your blog!Delete
Take care Kim!
Michael On The Mend Art Buddy!
Hey Michael!, so nice to have you (almost) back! I always like your Boston cityscapes, I love the "East Boston Neighborhood" with its misty murky atmosphere. It makes me think of you slowly emerging from your injury, not quite there yet but we are beginning to see it (you) through the murk (pain) again.ReplyDelete
Hope you are full strength soon!
Keep painting and not paining...
Hello David! Thanks buddy! I am feeling so much better. I so missed painting on a regular basis! Now I need to make sure I don't over do it and re-injure my shoulder! I am thrilled you like my work David! I am so glad you noticed the misty murky atmosphere! I so love to paint layers and glazes over dry paint to get that effect! You seem to know my work so well. I tell anyone who is willing to listen how much I love to make the painting emerge from the canvas! I am so off the chart happy that you used the exact words that I often use to describe my process and work. Thanks for your support David! I so hope your get some much needed rain soon!!!!!!Delete
Take care and I will keep painting and NOT paining! (Like that buddy!)
Michael On The Mend Art Buddy!
Just wanted to pass on my admiration for your wonderful spirit and fortitude.ReplyDelete
Happy you are painting - good for you! The Boston commission is looking like its going to be fabulous if it looks this good when unfinished.
Hope your recovery continues to improve. Cheers!
Hello Julie! Thank you so very much for stopping by and leaving such wonderful words! You are so very kind! Thanks for all your support! I so love receiving comments! Thanks again!Delete
Michael, you are very brave to push through the pain! You would never guess from your beautiful work that you have been suffering with your shoulder. I love all of these paintings and was particularly taken with the fiery colours in the ocean - very Michael Perchard!!ReplyDelete
All your flowers are looking stunning - hard to imagine that not so long ago the flower beds were all thick with snow. What a sweet fox! It is a shame that the hummingbirds are so hard to catch on film but I have a very nice image in my mind, and just knowing that you have such amazing feathered creatures visiting you is delight enough!
I hope you get some relief from that shoulder soon!
Take care Michael!
Your Aussie art buddy,
Hello My Aussie Art Buddy! Hi Wendy! I am thrilled you like my work! So happy to hear from you! Best news is my shoulder is getting so much better. Like seeing "very Michael Perchard!" Made me smile! I am glad you like the flowers. I too am amazed that we have such varied seasons here in New England. Few months ago all covered with wondrous cold deep white snow and now covered with wonderful green foliage and beautiful flowers! Love all the seasons! Still trying to get humming bird photos. Love them so much. Their wings actually hum when in flight. Sometimes so close very loud!!!ReplyDelete
Good luck with you book. Eager to know when you are finished!
Take care Mate!
Your USA Art Cobber!
I hope you're feeling better Michael! Love your paintings.and thank you for sharing those photos with us.....love how patriotic you are!!!ReplyDelete
