New York bound -- a joyous journey

No Contest -- Nature Wins!

This is the last painting in the trio celebrating the beauty
of Nova Scotia, that will be on display on September
9 at the champagne opening and I'll be there.  So if you're
in New York City then, and want to come out -- see the
art and have some fun, let me know.  You know that party
you are always wanting -- this is it.

When I am in Nova Scotia, clouds, the landscape and the
sea dominate my vision.  But I am strongly attracted to
cityscapes too. So I love this little corner of commercialism
with the clouds doing a happy dance above, and of course
being more spectacular than anything below.  Truth to tell,
just around the corner there are fields and horses, about six
blocks away are some of the most beautiful, majestic houses in the
Maritimes, and along the road, and around another corner you
can see farmland as far as the eye can see, rolling in gorgeous
shades of green and yellow, and then the ocean.

I am missing all of it, and the wonderful people I know

Have a loving-what-you-see day.

Our Texas coast needs your happy dance clouds, Barbara. What a blessing you are!

Hi Marilyn,

Thank you so much! I am thinking of Texas all the time. What a nightmare.
Of course this is climate change, frightening. You are a major blessing in
my life. I so love your beautiful work.
