Before and After Myrtle Beach


"Before Myrtle Beach"
Mixed media on paper (forgot to measure 15"x22" maybe)

"After Myrtle Beach"
Water media on paper (I think 22"x30")
Busy, busy time of year. Just finished the big studio open house last weekend, we had just over 5000 people in our building. Not just people, nice quality people. My sister Suzie shot some video, one of these days I will get it You-Tube-able.

In March, I went to a water media workshop in Myrtle Beach and got myself abstracted. You can see the above before and after paintings. Some of the patrons at the open house thought it was the martini's that caused the crazy looking after painting. It really wasn't that easy. 

Lately, I've been painting larger, and larger paintings take a little longer to finish. My friend Myra, suggested that I show some "in progress" images. She's right, so I will work toward that goal and try not to be such a stranger.

Beautiful day today, enjoy!

Hi JM, It's been awhile since I've said hello. Love the before's and after's...reminds me of what happened for me when i went to Skip Lawrence's workshop in Santa Barbara last month. It was great, and i count it a breakthru. Love all those martini glasses! Paint on!

Some interesting activity going on here. I am especially drawn to the two on the right. And I can see bigger paintings coming out of this direction. Keep up the great work, janetmarie!
