#15 SouthCoast New England City

Beach at Fort Tabor Park
8 x 10" oil
Please reply to this email if you want this.
Can you guess? Just out of sight are the famous enormous hurricane doors, keeping the rising waters of Hurricane Anygirl out of refurbished granite storefronts of New Bedford. Standing atop some old fort ruins, I painted this view near painting pals of the Westport Art Group Thursday Painters. The chill wind made me turn away from the view of the lighthouse and Cuttyhunk away off in the haze and face the little park beach which seemed appealing in spite of the lack of lifeguards and beachy weather!

After lunch we moseyed over toward the Whaling Museum to see the brand new Black Whale Gift Shop where several Southcoast Artists' work will be on display. The Black Whale is adding to its Nautical Theme with a new restaurant in the "YELLOW BUILDING" near the Waterfront Grill. So much to explore in New Bedford! Improvements are promising! Young entrepreneurs' energy is finding its way all the way to Tiverton! Here's one of my paintings that will be on view there:

Black Port on Entry
6 x 6" oil

And Sunday, you might want to visit The Mill Pond Shop area of Tiverton Four Corners to see this delightful show at Kathrine Lovell Studio and Gallery! Please click on the link to check it out! I'm off to New Jersey wearing my Granny hat next week. But I'll be back before you have noticed!

Challenge #14 Ned's View

Ned's View
6 x 12"
oil on panel

Yesterday, I picked up Anne Cordin at her campsite at Horseneck Beach. We drove to a scenic overlook of the Slocum River estuary traveling east on Horseneck Road. This has to be one of the most scenic places in the Southcoast region! A lovely old stonewall sheltered us from a nippy east wind. Plenty of sunshine was helping the freshly planted alfalfa get started. 
I plan to make this one part of my winter offering of Small Works available at the Providence Art Club Holiday Show. I hope you will get there to see the entire set of coastal works!

#13 on Friday, October 4 of the 30 in 30 challenge: Marshy River to the Sea

Marshy River to the Sea

8 x 10" oil  $350.00

Painted this on a warm, overcast day. What a pleasant place to pass the afternoon. Awaiting a kayak paddling downstream, one appeared JUST as I was packed up and ready to leave. You can fill in the detail here - differently every time you look upon it.

Purchase now by clicking on this oversized button. 

Or contact me here for other options. 

More reading: I've declared October "Portrait Month" at my studio in Tiverton Four Corners. If you're in the area and the idea appeals, just stop in to set up an appointment for a sitting when I will photograph you many times and begin to lay out the portrait with value guides and color patches. I'm promising such small works by holiday time. You may send a photo, but it must be several and from different angles in natural light (no flash). Only soft casual clothes in soft colors. The price for the 9 x 12 portrait will be $200.00 - a huge bargain! Pets and children are also welcome subjects, but the price may increase.
