I know that the colors of Maine will somehow find their way into my work. How could they not?
There are so many shades of blue set on a backdrop of white, with splashes of yellow and red, and the chartreuse greens. Ahhhhh..... color!
Sitting on the beach and painting showed me a new way of looking at things. I really looked at the colors most of all to see what I needed to mix and then shapes and forms came into view in a new way. I had no idea what I was doing, but I loved sitting there mixing watercolors and trying to portray what I was seeing on a white piece of paper.
Who needs diamonds and gold? I could sit in a pile of rocks and shells by the shore all day and just look at them. Gerry found lots of sea glass for me, he was a magnet for it. I love these colors.
Are you bored yet? I have more, I'll keep it brief :) maybe a story or two......
