Coming and Going II - 12 x 12 inches - oil on canvas - SOLD

"Coming and Going II" - 12 x 12 inches - oil on canvas
Back to painting a Westford of my favorite things to do.  I started with a bright orange-yellow canvas and really pushed the colors for dramatic effect.  Purchase information is below.

I've been remiss with my monthly give-aways so here are the winners for May and June: Jean S. and Tressa M.  You should have received an email in your inbox by now with the news as well.

Finally, I've decided to leave the Art on Main gallery.  The timing just felt right as I was looking for a new adventure and a new challenge.  A new gallery, Gallery529, is forming and I'm excited to be a part of it.  Much more news on that in future messages.  

Also, some of my smaller paintings are now available at Periwinkle Glassworksin Acton, MA.  I was honored when the owner asked me if I'd like to display my work there.

To thank everyone who has supported me at Art on Main, I've decided to offer a 20% off on all my paintings for the month of July 2014.  If you don't live in the area, just email me if there is a particular painting that you are interested in.  A link to my available paintings is here.

WA Softball - 6 x 6 inches - oil on canvas

WA Softball - 6 x 6 inches - oil on canvas
I recently finished this commission that was given as a high school graduation gift.  For the completed painting, the recipient's name was in the upper left corner but I used Photoshop to blot it out before posting.

I played softball in high school so this painting brought back some fond memories for me while I was working on it.

I get the nicest notes from folks who buy my paintings and I wanted to share what she wrote:


I just wanted to let you know that ___ LOVED her painting! Her & her Mom were brought to tears, they loved it so much.

Thanks again for everything – you made her so happy!

"The Mod Squad" - 10 x 10 inches - oil on canvas
As I was painting, this, the old TV show, "The Mod Squad" popped into my head so that became the title.  Don't you see a resemblance between the middle bottle and Peggy Lipton :)

I love spending time at the beach.  There is something magical about the ocean tides, the surf, the feeling of sand beneath your feet.  This is definitely my happy place :)
