The beautiful Maritimes fly south

One more painting that will show in New York at the Amsterdam
Whitney Gallery opening on October 6, next Saturday from 3 -
6 p.m. And yes I'll be there and delighted to see you if you'd
like to attend the opening.

This work, Moody Beauty, underscores the truth for me -- that
the Maritimes (and our drive out there from Toronto) are always
beautiful.  Grey day, sunny day -- every day astonishes with
its endless views of magnificent land -- much of it untouched by
the vicissitudes of progress, and overconstruction we see
in the urban environment.  Don't get me wrong -- I'm a city
woman, but that makes every trip I take to the country all
the more precious. 

Have a loving your country time day

Look at all that buttery, yummy yellow! What a beautiful palette, and a gorgeous painting, just like the painter who created it! Gobs of luck at your show in New York! I'll be there in spirit, cheerleading from the rafters. :) xoxo

Hi Belinda,

Thank you so much. I've been a bit busy since our New York trip, so I'm behind
in responding. i apologize. I so appreciate your support, and I absolutely love your work.

Thank you so much Suzanne,

I am really happy with the painting. It helped that I'd done a watercolour/coloured
pencil study of it before I began. It seemed to make me feel so liberated with
acrylic and palette knives.

You know I love your work so much.

Thank you so much Laura,

I think you would love the Maritimes. The people are lovely, and the scenery
amazing. You made me very happy with this comment. :-)

Hi Verna,

I'm glad you like this one. That is actually the sun in this one, on one of
those cloudy days where you can barely see it, but it pokes through.

Thank you so much, your comments always make me happy, and I
love your work.
