Completing the Trio

This is the third in a series of Beacon Street townhouses on the historic Beacon Hill across from the Boston Common. I walked over the Beacon Street yesterday to confirm the address of this building. Based on others I'd done, I guessed and I was glad to see that I guessed correctly. While I was there, I took some more photos of some of the other buildings that looked like good contenders for the next round of paintings. So it became an inspiring walk.

I had a chance to take a photo of the three paintings together this weekend and I have to say that I am really pleased. This is just how I pictured them, all lined up together similarly as they do in Boston. And I am excited to paint more!

My Cousins in Cabo

My Aunt Besty, whose grandkids I painted in "Where the Boys Are" asked if I would paint another one of my Aunt Lyn's (her sister) grandkids. She sent me this great photo of them all lined up on the beach in Cabo San Lucas where their family vacations every year.

I remembered to take a photo of the painting after the first session (shown below). All the faces went in in first--always the most time consuming and challenging part--then I could relax and have fun with the background scenery.
