Back Road to the Cove

8x6 Oil on Board
I've always felt you can travel with books and I'm coming to believe you can do the same thing with painting. This little painting is from a photo my husband took in Moorea before I knew him and it transported me to a warm, timeless place today while the wind is howling outside my window.
The last coat of mud is going on my new studio as we speak so I will soon be able to step way back from my easel. I can hardly wait!

Nuevo Vallarta Yacht Club

Oil on Linen Board

This is a little study of a yacht club in Nuevo Vallarta. I loved the feeling of the palm trees and the heat. We are getting a last little blast of really warm weather and I expect it inspired me to paint the scene.
