Susan's Day at the Beach

"Susan's Day At the Beach", Oil and Wax on canvas, 40"x30"
Collection of Dr. Susan Allen

I have been on my Summer pace lately which is not creatively
very productive I am embarrassed to say. It is difficult to stay
in the studio on these warm sunny days, besides I am doing
quite a bit of thinking about where I want to go with these 2
large canvases staring at me. I do way too much of that. I also
have been transforming my other blog as I get ready to make
the next step in promoting my healing profession. Now that I
have given you all my excuses I have posted an older painting
that is oil and wax. The proportions are not right on the image
but I do not know how to fix that in Photoshop.

It is Cherry harvest time and the tractors are driving by with their
trailers filled with crates filled with cherries to deliver to the 'Cherry
House' where large trucks will pick them up and take them out in the
world. I love this time of year when there is so much activity and the
pickers are living in our small town.

Vee, some how this paintings is very Marin to me, my expressionistic portrayel of the hills, the coast, the art that was created when we were children in the Bay Area. Love you also.

Brian how great to hear from you! It has been a while. Isn't about time you did the art and meaning project?

Wonderful! An interesting day for Susan so it seems....

Katherine said...

Momo Luna the great part of the story is it ended up that a Susan purchased it and it had nothing to do with the title, she just resonated with it.
