1199 Tour Group

sold We made the most of the day in Boston - we were met by our instructor who is a curator at the Fogg Museum and visited the ICA, MFA and the Isabella Stewart Gardner. We even managed to stop at the beach on the way home in Truro - the moon was bright and the sand lit up when we walked on it - what was that all about? still life, acrylic, 5" x 7"


  1. Really lovely. The yellow flower seems so fragile and transparent.

  2. Lisa!
    Great painting!
    And a great art day for you!
    It sounds like you have a great teacher!
    I am happy for you!
    Your art buddy,

  3. I love how you depict glass with a few deft strokes of the brush.

  4. Love your work! Ocean “phosphorescence”, commonly seen at night when the water is disturbed, is largely due to the dinoflagellates; they occur ubiquitously in the oceans as planktonic forms, responding to mechanical stimulation when the water is disturbed by emitting brief bright light you can also see them along sand when you move them with your feet.

  5. Hello! Thank you - I had to paint this at four a.m. in order to meet the others for our early departure, I think I may have been half asleep!

    Anonymous, just what I thought - it's totally fairy dust - I'm being cutesy - which isn't the easiest to convey in this form - but thank you for the response, I looked it up briefly yesterday but my internet is so slow here I couldn't find an explanation. If I go back, will they still be there? Or will they have washed away?
