This painting is a view of the marsh at high tide on the road to Crane's Beach. Often there are kayakers and boaters on these waterways. I recently rented a lovely art studio space in an old mill building where I can continue to focus on developing my skills as a painter in the company of many wonderful artist friends. I find that having a space outside of my home helps me concentrate for uninterrupted hours of creativity. I'll be sharing more paintings with you soon.

Dear friends and followers,
I have been away from my blog for several months while I have been taking classes with a wonderful artist, Kelly Carmody. I have learned a lot and am now inspired to again paint still lifes, landscapes and portraits and share them with you on my blog. I have reactivated my website and added some new paintings at: sunnywestpaintings.com. This is my latest oil painting from a still life set up in my studio. I love the challenge of painting white roses! Thank you for sharing my adventures in painting. It is so nice to have feedback and comments on this blog. I will continue to post new paintings as they are finished. Enjoy!

This is a revised painting of the woman at the MFA painting a copy of John Singer Sargent's painting. I made several changes that I hope are improvements. I am submitting this painting to a juried Members show at the Newburport Art Association this weekend.

On a recent visit to the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, I discovered this young woman painting a painting by one of my favorite Boston artists, John Singer Sargent. She was doing a wonderful job! I couldn't resist taking a photo so that I could paint her painting Sargent.
