"Rainy Day" Painting

Hello Groovy People!

Sorry I went MIA on ya (yes, I know that's nothing new - ha!).  I got a little busy with some special orders, one of which was for a local retail shop that I'm very excited about!  I delivered their order yesterday and I'm crossing my fingers that all goes well.  If you're the praying type I sure would appreciate it if you'd say a little prayer for me that all goes well in that area.  On another note, I know I have several people who asked for some small abstract landscapes/seascapes and I had every intention of doing some when I got the call for the order.  Please know that I have not forgotten and I'm hoping to get to them the latter part of next week.  

In other exciting news, I finally got some things loaded in my Etsy shop!!  You may have noticed that I have changed some things around and added some new things on the blog (except for the profile picture - I know, I gotta change it!  For those of you who don't know me personally - I don't look like that anymore - I'm a little more round now and my hair is a little bit shorter and I'm a wee bit older.  I sure do like that picture tho...)

Okay, so now that I caught y'all up a little bit here is what my post is about today:


It is titled "Rainy Day."  I started this canvas a couple of months ago and finally got around to finishing it.  Obviously I painted it during the rainy season - ha!  Seriously, we have had so much rain lately, and usually I paint myself some sunshine, but I guess I was really in the mode that day.  I actually like rainy days sometimes and this painting reminds me a of nice quiet rainy afternoon.  I can just picture myself curled up on the sofa with a blanket and a book, at a beach house - yeah, that's it, a beach house and that's my view while I laze away the afternoon reading and napping...  

I really need to do something to improve my photography skills, I promise it looks much better in person.  It comes across a little harsh in this photo, but its actually very soft and tranquil.  It is also difficult to capture the detail.  There are many layers that you really don't see in this photo.  Here are some close-ups that might help (if you click on the photograph it will enlarge it for you!):







If you are local please go by The Fairhope Artist Gallery and see it in person!  Since it is Arts and Crafts weekend I'm hoping this is the only "rainy day" you see!  (if you aren't local our town has this HUGE arts and crafts festival every year, its a really big thing in our area!) 

Peace-n-Luv!

Debbie

  1. Debbie, I LOVE the rainy day painting! It's so simple, but complex at the same time with all those layers...and anything with a splash of that turquoise blue makes me swoon. Beautiful! I have a feeling you will do well at that retail shop you spoke about...

    1. Thank you Judy! At first I was a little worried that it was too gloomy, but after a while I fell in love with the softness and I loved all the colors that were present despite being so neutral. I'm so glad my friend bought it! Warms my heart!

      Peace,
      Debbie

  12. A few things i have seen in terms of laptop or computer memory is that often there are features such as SDRAM, DDR etc, that must fit in with the specs of the mother board. If the personal computer’s motherboard is reasonably current while there are no operating-system issues, improving the memory literally will take under a couple of hours. It’s one of the easiest computer upgrade types of procedures one can envision. Thanks for sharing your ideas. android phone template
