Good News - reading, figure, letters

Good News                    oil on linen                      8"x 8"
When was the last time you got a letter instead of an email? My friend Judy writes great letters and I know she still has a pen pal with whom she has corresponded for years. It's a nice and personal touch, and I applaud those of you who still write letters. Something I would hate to see go away.
Pin It


  1. I really like all the light coming through the vines. It makes for some great shadows, too. Very nice!!

  2. So many changes now! I haven't received a letter in a long time. Again, how many people read books when they have kindles!! I LOVE the looseness of this painting, painterly and love the shadow work.

  3. Correspondence has become a romantic notion in this 'fast' age we live in. I was corresponding with 3-4 people, from the age of 13 to 25. I loved it, still do, but things have changed!
    Your painting reminded me the sweetness of anticipation of the letter and that lovely feeling when I was about to open the envelope. Beautiful-as always-painting Mary
    Warm regards.

  4. I really love how you put people in your paintings....lovely!!!

  5. What wonderful oil. I like the light and colors. Perfect composition and perfect done the human figure. What beautiful words for your friend, candy comment.


Thank you for taking the time to comment. I love hearing from you!
