Something Different

Trying to get jumpstarted to finish out the 30-n-30, but overwhelmed with all the work involved in downsizing and getting our house on the market (we LOVE this house)!  So very emotional, logistical, stressful, and holding our breath for the wonderful part!  Our life has always been – more, bigger, better, but this is a new twist.  Less, smaller, better – er, better – how does that actually happen? Will keep you posted.  

I did manage to get a painting in.  The reference photo carried so much ambiance, intrigue, yet subtle colors I had to give it a go.  Probably didn’t do it justice, but I really wanted to convey the simplicity in an artistic fashion. I love things crisp and clean and hope my interpretation conveys that mood. When an artist decides they are finished, that means they are happy with the end result. Trust me on this.




Enjoy, life is joy we make one moment at a time. The fun part is when life changes things up and you figure out how to make it into a delightful memory.

Here is the reference photo - because it's so fantastic.  If you like it, I encourage you to register (free) at pmp-art.com to view great photos and paint from them without concern for copyright issues.  How great is that!
