Stony Brook Harbor


4x6 oil sketch on raymar panel. I realize that I haven't been producing as much as last year. Granted life has a way of "getting in the way".

But I had another epiphany this morning. My husband usually laughs when I say that. But the truth is my art has been the stabilizing force that gets me through rough times. I don't know who said "when you loose yourself, you find yourself". As you all know, slopping paint onto a canvas, or pushing a pencil is great therapy.
So I say to all my fellow artist out there: Happy Painting.

  2. Hi there Joan!...Another piece of "Water Music"... soothingly soft... reflective!

    The painting surely does... clearly and outwardly... express your inner peace... stability and joy Joan!I share your feelings about the role one's painting can play in helping one over the "bumpy parts" in life!

    My art saved my life!

    Good Fall Painting!
    Warmest regards Joan,
    Bruce

  3. Hi Joanie,

    What a tranquil setting. I agree, painting sustains me through the bumps in the road of life and always brings me joy. It is the best therapy being in the "zone".

    Happy painting to you!!!
