Oh sweet memories of going to the old Hatfield Drive-In in Athens, AL. Those were the days when life was a little less complicated. Went there the first time with my brother and his girlfriend and the brother came back from the snack bar with an upside down pizza : ) Several years later my husband of 34 years takes me there on our first date...in his little blue Volkswagen, in the rain....but we didn't care. I still have one of their speakers...but that's another story!

I grew up smelling the beautiful fragrance of Lilacs on the breeze coming through the open windows on Easter. This Easter I was inspired by that wonderful smell once again and tried to capture it in this painting.

Here's my latest painting.... a more loosly done than normal for me, textured rendition of a sweet memory from our trip to Italy and Germany last summer. Can't wait to do more when there's more TIME! (Well, I guess there's only so much time, it's a matter of where you spend it huh?) The original is for sale @ $150 and it is a 20" x 16" oil on canvas. Prints on canvas as well as framed and matted to your specifications of this and many other works are available at the fineartamerica site linked above. Thanks for stopping by!
You never know when something sweet is going to happen.
I went to the dentist here in DC recently...a new dentist, Dr. Mary Stuart Gallian in Fairfax, VA, who was recommended by my dentist in Alabama, Dr. Jeremiah Harris. Dr. Gallian had a print of a beautiful painting by Daniel Pollera on the wall in the room where I was "worked on". I absolutely fell in love with it. It's called "Snug Harbor". Before I left her office I went on and on about how it looked like exactly where I want to retire. He captured such a mood in his meticulous oil rendering. I even went back and took a snapshot with my I-phone of the print which was beautifully matted and framed. I went back for my "permanent crown" a few weeks later and the framed print was sitting in the front office with my name on it! The dentist had been given some new art work by her husband and had to hang it somewhere. She thought of how much I loved the print and GAVE it to me! It's now in my temporary apartment here in DC and will go with me back to my home in Alabama at the end of this month. It's something I will always treasure.
I guess I was a little carried away with the painting...love it when that happens! I want to paint more paintings that carry you away!
