Art Works/New Chapter Introduction
Along came a couple in a golf cart. They were on their honeymoon, and wanted to buy the painting.
Back in Indiana, I finished it, named it “Gulf Squall,” and shipped it to them.
Here it is, oil on canvas….
It’s no surprise to anybody who knows me, but I’ve wanted to be a painter since I was a girl, and scared up dribs and drabs of time every year or two, to start a painting. Some were finished and hang on my walls–most are of my sons as babies.
So, here’s a new section of the blog, and my introductory chapter: Eight painting starts at Ft. Myers Beach, Florida, Feb., 2014, pictured below; two of them finished and six yet to go. My best hope for a good finished painting is the big “Northwest Front,” I think.
But first, there’s another promised painting to finalize and deliver. …And another painting start done for last weekend’s Owen County Studio Tour.
Is that too many unfinished paintings? I have plenty more to finish–the results of those dribs and drabs of time, and all rooted in the past. Yes, I have a full novel–chapters full of unfinished paintings!
But art works. Right?
