Winter Walk - daily painting, Postcards From Rhode Island

5x7 oil on gessobord panel. Postcard from RI. Ive got some 5x7 boards prepared and have never used them because I love the square format so much better.

6x6" oil on canvas. The Watch. Do you know this woman? Well If you're a Mom whose been to the beach with kids, then you know her -'cause she's YOU! Always watching, always checking and double checking, doing a head count. Even when sitting with the latest People magazine, one eye is always on the water.
