April 22 2010 Earth Day



One of the most difficult aspects of blogging is finding words to say about each piece. Today is a beautiful Spring day. It is sunny and the temperature is perfect with a slight breeze. As I was sitting in my studio looking out of the patio doors toward the water this is what I saw. I couldn't get to my paint brushes quickly enough!! I haven't painted many landscapes and so my tries are largely with little training. Having said that, it was really a good thing. I enjoyed the elements and the wonderful sun filled colors.

Brushstrokes and colors are really great! Very painterly. It's a wonderful painting!

I applaud you for painting what moved you... this is a good composition, Linda.

Love the greens in this one. Are you what they call a "colorist"? I never understand all those terms that are supposed to define painters.

hi Linda I always enjoy your brushstokes and color:) I am glad you experienced the Marine workshop, the one I took from her last year was soooooo good!!!

Hi Linda, your colors are wonderful. I was out painting today too. It's always good to get out and paint!

Linda, you should paint more landscapes, (or Seascapes), this one is wonderful. All the best.
Vic.

It's wonderful. I just love how loose and easy you make it seem. Sometimes the paintings are borderline abstract and I so appreciate that. Lovely.
