This is the first of a series of Dorchester Bay beauties. Lugging my camera around for twenty mile walking days in Boston paid off the last day. We had lunch the final day in a park across from Dorchester bay. I was absolutely giddy to find lots of ladies enjoying the beach. This one is painted on a 10 x 10" gallery wrap canvas.
Another highlight of my trip to Boston was getting to visit the Museum of Fine Art and seeing lots of John Singer Sargent's paintings. Words can not express the beauty of his work. Tears maybe.
Carol, this is such a jolly painting. Glad you had a productive visit to Boston....love that town!ReplyDelete
This is great! Is it mostly palette knife? I really like the texture.ReplyDelete
Love this painting, Carol. It has great light, and interesting texture. I know that area of Dorchester very well. Also, glad to know that you had a chance to visit the MFA, a favorite of mine!ReplyDelete
This is fabulous Carol, I love everything about it from the ladies to the composition!ReplyDelete
Congrats on your successful walk!!
Love the blues in your painting. Good job capturing the light and the ladies are perfect. Well done!ReplyDelete
I run into your paintings every now and then and just want to say you have done some great stuff! This one I saw on the dailypaintworks site and it caught my eye. Great knife work!ReplyDelete
Beautiful work, Carol!ReplyDelete
Love, love LOVE this one. The simplicity, the gesture, the texture, the composition....well, everything! I look forward to seeing more!ReplyDelete
Terrific painting! You really captured the scene perfectly, the peacefulness of the water, even the Boston accents in their conversation! You were on my old stomping grounds and I saw this scene often . . . I grew up in So. Boston, just down the spit from where you were and went to college at Emmanuel, a skip away from the MFA. Congrats on the success of your walk. Glad you're back in the studio!ReplyDelete
Love the stance of these ladies Carol! Looking forward to your series.ReplyDelete
Hi! You were so close to where I live! These are great paintings, I know exactly where you were that day and it was HOT - congratulations on your fundraising for the cancer walk - and I admire you and everyone who did it.ReplyDelete
Carol, I absolutely love this! The colors are so appealing - the neutrals shown off by the white and black. You have a gift for composition. The way you place your figures - very unique and creative! Thank you for this series...such a treat!ReplyDelete
First off- I think I am caught up backwards on a wonderful series! Great posturing on the seniors! Second off- Wow on getting to see JJSargeant paintings!! Sounds like it had a wonderful impact on you!ReplyDelete
Love the way you simplified the background on this. The figures are great, of course, but my eye went to the great flat abstracted background.ReplyDelete
