Hard to Get

(Re-posted by Carol Marine on behalf of Brenda Ferguson) Speaking of goats, here's one Bren did back in 2011 that I particularly like. In her original post Bren said she had a pile of brown she was hoping to use up, but didn't end up using any of it, except for the background. Too funny! : )

Memories

(Re-posted by Carol Marine on behalf of Brenda Ferguson) Here's what Bren said the first time around: "I remember bringing in fists full of dandelions that my mom kindly displayed in jars like they were the most beautiful thing...and doing the same with the fists full my kids brought to me. To this day I love a field filled with dandelions and sort of hate having them mowed down in our yard/field. "

Rejoice

(Re-posted by Carol Marine on behalf of Brenda Ferguson) Here's what Bren said the first time around: "They just looked like they were throwing their arms up, rejoicing!" I totally agree.

Line by Line


(Posted by Carol Marine on behalf of Brenda Ferguson) A love of rocks is another thing Bren and I share. Specifically rocks with stripes on them. In fact I have in my studio, on the window ledge right next to my easel, a rock with a perfect circle that Bren found and gave to me. She could have kept it for herself, but no. It was the ultimate act of a loving friendship! : )

How to Separate Eggs

(Posted by Carol Marine on behalf of Brenda Ferguson) This one is particularly silly, which is something I love about Bren! It's something we have in common - silliness. : ) I especially love the title. And of course the painting itself, with its yummy colors and cheerful pig.

Between a Rock...

Hi, it's Bren here. I've had a couple of days of feeling pretty good, so decided to give Carol a day off with pay( Ha! the check's in the mail, Carol!) and post myself.
This is the last painting I did before my recent bout of illness, so I painted it almost three months ago. The stones are from the beach at Cape Breton, Canada. I love how the waves tumble the smaller pebbles onto, over and around the larger stones.
** and stay tuned in the next couple of days for a project of mine I've been able to get in amid elixir (chemo) treatments. Possible early Christmas shopping for friends who like to know what day it is...**

Carol Marine's Book

My dear friend, Carol, has accomplished another amazing feat...another milestone in her illustrious art career. She just published a brand new instructional art book with Random House! The book is a feast for the eyes and food for the soul. It's FULL of information, in fact Carol held nothing back. The format is varied and beautiful and the voice is pure Carol! You can order it on Amazon.com here.  If you do...prepare to be mesmerized. You'll feel like you're talking with an old friend.

This Way and That

(Posted by Carol Marine on behalf of Brenda Ferguson) I just love this series of brushes that Bren did in 2012. What a fun arrangement!

Re Posed


(Reposted by Carol Marine on behalf of Brenda Ferguson) Here's what Bren said the first time 'round: "I'm always interested in the chiaroscuro effect of objects emerging out of the darkness. A great opportunity to find and lose edges."

Enfold

(Posted by Carol Marine on behalf of Brenda Ferguson) Here is what Bren said about this one the first time around: "It's really a blast painting feathers. They have so many textures...the clear quill, downy feather bits, the sleek smoothed section, etc. I really like the shape of the singular shadow cast by the egg and feather here. Some cool feather-light music. (To continue looking at the art while you listen, right click on the colored word 'music' and go to Open Link in New Tab.)"

In Her Glory

(Posted by Carol Marine on behalf of Brenda Ferguson) When Bren originally posted this (at about the same time of year), she said: "It's been apple season here in Maine for a while now. I always pick at our local orchard and spend lots of time savoring the smells, sights and sounds...and photographing. Though I spent lots of time trying to get it correct, the color of this one is much better in person."

Plump Rump

(Posted by Carol Marine on behalf of Brenda Ferguson) My pal is so so good at painting pears, don't you think? And she and I share a particular love of polka dots. This one just plain makes me smile. : )

Reverence

(Posted by Carol Marine on behalf of Brenda Ferguson) This is another beautiful oldie by my bud, Bren. It seems fitting as I was visiting at her house last week and the sunflowers were just fading away, many looking a bit like this.

Toe to Toe

Hi, this is Carol Marine. I am going to be posting on behalf of my dear friend Brenda for a little while. She is undergoing a particularly aggressive chemotherapy treatment, and is unable to post. She has received many wonderful emails from you guys but hasn't been up to answering very many. She asked me to relate her heart-felt thanks! Brenda is a wonderful artist and has many oldies but goodies, so I'll be re-posting those for her. Here's a great example!

It's Delicate

I'm delighted to be able to post another new painting. I did this one two weeks ago when I was able to paint a bit. It's done from a reference photo swapped with my bud, Carol. I really like the color combinations. Here's some equally delicate musical inspiration.

Overshadowed

I just love this little painting...the way the pear mimics the shape and size of the vase...and the lighting. It's a favorite of mine.

Oh Happy Day!

Last Wednesday was a momentous day for me.  Momentous in a private quiet sort of way. It was the first day in well over a month I've felt well enough to be at my easel. Oh happy day! And luckily the sunflowers are in full bloom! Here's some musical accompaniment.
