I grew up in Saugus, MA. In the middle of the square is a rotary with a monument in the middle. I painted this so the new Saugus Art Association can use it as a fund raiser.

I just returned from a fun trip to the West Coast. Every time I travel, I bring my paints. But there always is so much to see and do that I seldom do any painting. This is a painting done on my brother Joe & Lisa's balcony. You look out and see the Morrows. They are beautiful. They are golden where the grass has turned, and green where the bushes grow. I added some poppies that were not there. I will do it over and make the poppies yellow orange in color.

My art building is open Wednesday & Thursdays in the summer. We get quite a lot of artists painting there. I painted this batik there, put on the wax, mixed a real dark color and painted it on after I crinkled the waxed painting. They even had a iron so I ironed off the wax. It looked terrible. The dark was too dark. I took it home and got out my acrylics. This is the results.
