Beach Tent - by Cris Marlow


Ahhhh I do long to go to the beach to work on my tan line that is virtually non-existent since moving to NC from South Florida. In fact, I miss the beach so much so that Sabrina and I are heading over to Virginia Beach next weekend for a girl's weekend and bit of R&R.
How perfect is it that the AECO I received from Cris (pursuant to a trade) depicts a beautiful beach tent - on the coast (of either Oregon or California, Cris?) In my imagination though, it is on the Carolina coast and waiting for Sabrina & I.

My AECO was enclosed in a card featuring a picture of a painting by Cris entitled, "The Color of Sound and Motion" which looks like a place we visit often over on the Carolina coast. I had to look very closely at this photograph to see evidence that it was indeed a painting. The details captured made it a hard call.

Do go visit Cris and see her lovely watercolors and witness her amazing photography. Her work is beautiful and truly an inspiration!
Thank you Cris - for sharing your art with me.

Yes! Cris' art rocks !!! I have some too on my Friday's post.
Are we lucky! I have had the good fortune to see much of her art in person and the details are indeed incrediable.

Thank You Cathie. I am so happy you enjoyed them both. The beauty of most of my work is that it can be anywhere you want it to be. The viewer feels it and decides.
I sold the Birds painting to someone who saw 'symbolism' in it. She collected Art and was even going to have it insured. They came and had their photo taken with me and the painting and sent me some photos. I was so delighted. I had it in the Orange County Fair in CA where she saw it. So I am really happy you see what you see in them both because that is where they are. Thanks for the lovely tribute. I can't wait to get yours.
