WIP Maritime Blues – Update #3

4 Sep

So, my goal of painting two or three shells per day has been completely thrown out the window!  Toss in my daughter’s beautiful destination wedding.  And while the event was small, even with company and family literally coming in from the four corners over the world –  the daily painting goal was tossed out the window.

When on the island (PEI), I managed to do quite a few plein air paintings (fourteen to be exact) and work a bit on a watercolor of a Flame Pom Pom Dahlia.  The mussel shell painting was just too large to travel.  Once we returned home, a number of the travelers returned with us.  Once again our home was bustling with friends, good food and laughter. Who can paint with people having so much fun without you?

Now I am back at it.  I managed to carve a few hours out this past weekend to focus on the mussel shells.  And although it is rather slow going, I am making headway.  New goal – to have this work framed by the end of September!
