Mary Too

My first painting of Mary was gifted to Merle, Marys' sister and my very good friend, and to Stan, Merles' husband. This one is for another very good friend Myra, who is Marys', sisters', sons', wifes' mother, and her partner Alan. Yeah, I have trouble keeping up too! Myra chose her favourite photo of Mary for me to paint.

This is going to take a long time! Another small piece of the large painting for the hospital. Hope they like it!

Snettisham Beach 12" x 9" Oil

On Tuesday I met up with my very good friend and fellow artist Carolann, who was taking a camping break at Snettisham. We had a brilliant day, chatting arty stuff, obviously, and we took the dog for a (very long, I discovered that my legs do work!) walk on Snettisham Beach.
I tend not to do landscapes, but Carolann inspired me to have a go, but I am not competing, her landscapes are awesome.

Balloons (detail)

I have not painted for weeks! And it is so hard to get started again. This week I have begun the large painting for the hospital, blocking in all the elements in the local colour in acrylic. Nothing easy to get me going again! I might have to finish in oils because, as you can see from this face, I've forgotten how to manage acrylics. This is a small corner of the painting, just to whet your appetite!
