Painting #66 Burtonsville, NY III

This is yet another painting of Burtonsville, NY. I decided to paint it in a conglomeration of watercolor, ink, and charcoal. I had a lot of fun combining mediums and playing with the various shades in this old black and white photograph. My mother looked at this painting, and immediately knew that it was a particular home in Burtonsville, by just seeing the house’s front porch. I can’t really imagine life as it was 100 years ago. What would I be doing? Would I be married? A school teacher? A writer? I would like to think I would still be an artist… it just seems to be in my blood. I would probably know how to knit… I’ve always wanted to learn, but just never have!

Can you imagine spending long, quiet hours sitting on the front porch, in a rocker, just enjoying nature and the people around you? I have a hard time sitting still long enough to sketch out my paintings! Even then, I have an audio book or the radio going in the background!

I’ve included a few photographs of a floral conglomeration I did on our dining room table. I love hiding little arrangements under glass, and creating “living” center pieces. A few of these plants are actually planted in little tiny mugs. So cute.

Please stop by my Etsy page if you are interested in seeing more of my work!

Also, I am still taking commission requests! Bring it on!
