Snow might be in the forecast, but when I gaze at my painting of these colorful sandals, I am instantly transported to my favorite place... the BEACH! These sandals are the quintessential footwear of many chic resort towns along the coast.
And these paintings are sure to set the mood of a room to one of sunshine and relaxation. Let's go on vacation! One size fits all.
The early morning hours pass too quickly. I awoke early this morning to the faint light of the sky. After some reflection & reading, the room was a glow in sunbeams. Soon the day will be a buzz with voices and activity. I just want to savor this moment. And, here is a painting from another early morning when I caught Cissy in the act.
Ruth Anderson and Lillian Burgess were sisters that shared the house across the street from us. They were complete opposites from each other. Lillian was ladylike, always in a dress, her white hair piled in a high bun on her head. She drove around town in her vintage powder blue VW beetle. Her sister Ruth dressed in pants, was cantankerous, and loved a good joke. They have been gone for over a decade, but Lillian's hydrangea bushes live on in our garden. The painting resides in the permanent collection at The University of Charleston.
This lamp post art was created for the East End Main Street public art program.
The original painting ( "Pink Lady")represents one of the many turreted homes in the east end neighborhood. The sign is located in front of "The Abundant Life Ministries" church at 1534 Washington St. East. The painting is on display at Old Colony Realty and is for sale.
This painting along with another were accepted into the Tamarack Art Gallery's new show "Our Appalachia", which opens Sunday August 10th and closes September 28th. The subjects are based on a photo that I took at a friend's wedding in the country. Stop by the gallery to see the show, and then have a bite at The Greenbrier Cafe.
