Beach Abstraction

Beach Abstraction
9" by 12" original oil on linen panel

It seems I could also call this piece, Beach Distraction! These last couple of weeks since I made my decision to rent my house and move to the beach....I have been a wee bit distracted from my painting!  I am so excited to share that I have found someone to rent my house in Chesapeake and will be renting a duplex in Virginia Beach that is 50 yards from the Atlantic Ocean!!  I wanted to get closer to the beach but did not dream that this would be a possibility!  I am going to have to really downsize which I started more than a year ago and have been doing full time in the last two weeks but I can't wait to start this new adventure and to share all the inspirations that this change will surely bring!  While down seeing my new place, I took this picture....
View Down The Street!

The duplex I am going to rent is at the northend of the beach needs some paint and TLC to make it shine and I would love to share the progress when the move begins.  On this end I have begun transforming my old furniture and adapting it to the new beach cottage look!  Here is the first piece which is from my dining room when I was growing up and I finally broke down on Friday and painted it white.  This is just the primer coat but I kind of like it just the way it is!  

Hope your weekend has been restful and fun!  Thanks for visiting!  Please contact me with any questions about my work at
