Approaching Storm



I painted this last night while my out-of-town company sat and talked to BB, PB and me. Since I was at home and not at the studio, I painted the entire thing with one of those tiny pocket palette boxes (Windsor Newton). I didn't have my proper brushes, either. And I couldn't get a fine enough line with the masking fluid for the lightning. Oh well, here it is. It's a storm over a barn in Baldwinsville, NY, where I had to run and run to try to escape the coming storm. I will NOW package and mail the mole to Mike, I hope. Today is BB's birthday and I have a poetry class tonight and the girls (my daughters) just left a little while ago, so it will be tight. But I will try!

Impressive, Mary. My mom was an artist and worked mainly in oils...she sold quite a few landscapes and floral pictures...

I've tried, but never put in enough time to do it right. I think you have a special talent.

Thanks for sharing these!

You do keep busy!

i really liked seeing the painting on the table, with the water jar, the paints... made me feel welcomed in! you are very brave; i admire how you put out your paintings even when you aren't fully satisfied. i try to do that with my poems too... it's the process that i love more than the product. but hopefully someone will find something along some part of it to love. i am totally in love with your work. xoxoxoox
