First painting on ebay!

This painting, "Stormy Marsh" was inspired by the shore in Hampton. I wanted to paint something on a small scale that appeared to have lots of space and depth. The vastness does translate well here and even the small subtle brush strokes of color represent large amounts of information. I am always amazed at how that can happen. This is one painting in a series of landscapes I've just started. It is 6x6 inches, acrylic on double gessoed masonite. To see a close-up or to bid on this painting on Ebay, please, click here.
More exciting news... a purchaser of one of my larger landscape paintings from Breaking New Grounds, a coffee and dessert cafe in Portsmouth, asked if she could use the image as a logo for her new shop in downtown Portsmouth. The plan is for a summer or fall set-up.... I will keep you posted!
I have just listed more art card packs on Etsy and more are on the way. The line consists of different designs from my original paintings packaged as 10 correspondence cards with 10 envelopes.
Mark your calendars for my Spring Open House Friday and Saturday, May 9 and 10. Lots to see. This is always a fun event. My artist neighbors and I get together and open our studios for two days. Lisa Cochran of Lily Designs, Dale Atkins Painting and Frame Restoration and I all have studios on the same street in the same block. This time joining us we have Lori Martone Pottery, Deb McLarnon Photography, Heidi Brightman Simplicity Soaps, and Autumn Wilbur Toe Stories. I will have wall to wall paintings and more... plus, my studio/kitchen is in the process of a remodel so this should be interesting!
Also, stop in and visit my solo shows at the Exeter Public Library (downtown) and the Divine Cafe on Lincoln Street in Exeter. I am sure you will find some color to kick your spring in to gear.

Thanks for looking, I hope you have a swell day!
