This view from my kitchen window was particularly stunning one evening. The Maine coastline is a glorious place anytime of day. I could hear the squawking seagulls following the boat as the fishermen returned home with their precious cargo. Lobster anyone?

This acrylic is chunky paint with a palette knife. Tropical Dreams is a delicious assortment of hues of corals, yellows and purples. The colors in this painting make it sing! Makes me feel like belting out a tune!
This blue hydrangea was a special gift from a grateful daughter to her mother. It symbolizes heartfelt emotion. The hydrangea was first discovered in Japan and developed during the Victorian Era. Woody stems and lacey star-shaped flowers are packed closely into a pom pom shape. Coming in a rainbow of colors, It truly does possess grace and beauty.

I found this little pink cottage tucked away next to the water. This, I thought, would be a wonderful place to paint. With it's lovely charm and surroundings it would be a great environment to keep those creative juices flowing. However, its present owners felt the same way I felt...oh well...I'll have to find another little cottage tucked in the woods.

The Block Party is a palette knife done with oils. Koi ponds and Florida seem to be a great fit. The koi are so friendly and always on the search for a little snack or maybe just a visit. They seem to live in a perpetual party state. When I would go outside to feed my koi they knew it was me and always seemed overjoyed to seem me. That's why I named my painting The Block Party. I always loved a Block Party!
The Mucky Duck is located on Captiva Island in Southwest Florida. Internationally recognized fun spot...it is beachfront dining and playing at its best. The view is spectacular with the waters of the Gulf of Mexico as a backdrop .. The colors are a wide range of aqua blues and every blue imaginable. Water activities abound ... but my favorite is by far the blazing sunsets. Absolutely glorious.
Imagine a stroll along the coarse black sand beach of Panalu'u Bay, Hawaii. Green sea turtles basking in the sun are frequent visitors here. Endeared and protected by the locals, legend is Kauila protects all children. In her honor there is an engraving depicting Kauila carrying a sleeping child on her back. What a magical place.

A Cafe of my imagination...somewhere in a special town in Rhode Island. The East Side, Newport, or any of the historic waterfront towns, like Wickford Harbour would be a dream come true. I think it should be a cozy B&B. Maybe I should move it to another climate...say Key West? I think it's time to stop daydreaming, after all, I need to prepare for my someday Gallery.
