Wave Worn Shores of Marblehead #20


The effects of shoreline waves that have washed over boulders, cliffs, and rocks have always intrigued and challenged me.  I am repeatedly captivated and mesmerized while listening to the crashing white waves or to the gentle washing of lapping water over the  smooth "wave-worn" stone slabs of Marblehead.  This is a magical place to paint en plein air.

I love other artist's work! 
I went to Middletown last weekend to watch an oil painting demonstration by Kevin Macpherson.    His show runs until June 15th at the Middletown Art Center in Middletown, Ohio.   If you love impressionism, I highly recommend this show!

When I looked at this soothing painting in various shades of blue, a song title popped into my head from years ago called "Shades of Blue". I looked up the lyrics, and one of the lines in the song goes, "I will wait for You here in all these shades of blue". The song, of course, was not talking about Jesus, but I thought it fit your painting perfectly. "May we all wait quietly in Your Presence, Lord Jesus, in all these shades of blue."

It is fun that you share the work of other artists, too.

Your painting is beautiful. So are the three artist challenges...painting with lace. Maybe next time I''ll get mine finished in time.

How fantastic to watch Macpherson work and see his paintings in person! I bet you learned a lot.

They are really good..
