The rain much needed came today, the flowers need it , but it sure made a dreary day , a great day to paint after my morning cleaning . Clancy was asleep all day a bit depressed after Bosley left yesterday , that is my son's dog , I was watching him all week, they had played so much during the week both young and full of energy ,of course they are like kids ,you have to watch them every minute , one time Bosley got a hold of a yellow tube of oil paint ,he had it all over his face and paws ,that was a job cleaning him !

Red sky at night , sailor's delight, red sky morning sailor's takes warning , I think that is how the saying goes, being French I tend to mess up these little saying with my own versions, my kids often make fun of what I come up with!
Oh well, I do pretty good for someone who came to this country not speaking a word of English , it didn't take me long to learn , and surely never expected to have things written in my own language like they do today.
I am having fun painting these colorful skies , I hope you enjoy them , don't be afraid to buy one , they do need a home! email me if you are interested . email@example.com

Spring is here, all the trees are in blossoms ,it just happened over night with the heat we had this week , we certainly deserve it after this horrible winter. I am still on my sunset / sunrise series
it's amazing to see all the different sky's I have captures with my camera , it has to be the must beautiful part of the day , it's like God takes a paint brush and show us how to paint!

Very hot today , all the trees bloom over night, amazing how few days of sun can change things .

A sky can be the most beautiful abstract painting we get from God almost every morning and every night , you never see the same design twice ,the colors can be so beautiful and so unreal you wonder how it happens , I am fascinated with them at times , when I am painting at the farm in the summers in Maine with all my friends we go totally crazy taking pictures of the most beautiful sky over the hills of the farm or over the bay.
I am longing for my summer trips to Maine .

Today I was thinking about our place in Maine , and wanted to be there , but we are waiting for the snow to be all gone maybe another few weeks . We usually go there by this time but we had an unusual winter this year. so I decided to take out some of my photos of this beautiful Maine sky and painted this 5x7 oil , I am also baby sitting my son's dog a Burmese mountain dog , him and Clancy played all day today right by my easel , a bit distracting , but I managed to pull it off

And guess what ? nobody came , all of us artists spent 10 hours on a Saturday to welcome the
nice people of Westborough and surroundings for a worldly cause , It seems the people were too busy for such event , what a shame ! The organisers were wonderful and really worked hard on this project.
The life of an Artist can be very disappointing at times , you work so hard for so little and many disappointments that have gone on for centuries . But one thing we are strong and try to never let get us down and keep on painting ! Of all my years doing shows , I must say this was a first of this kind . Oh well you win some you loose some! better next time.
No post today .

What a beautiful sunny day today, still cold in the mornings when I walk with Clancy . Today I went to our local high school NMHS, my young neighbor and two classmate had a class project on world studies , so I went to talk about how it was growing up in France , it brought back a lot of memories living there and going to Art school .This after noon I was a bit press for time so I only painted a miniature of the birds from my last trip to HHI , I would like to do more in a larger format.
