The Wam Squam, which means "white water" was a major White Lake landmark, I can't remember how many times I gavc directions and used "turn right at the Wam Squam". A wonderful place to catch up on the latest gossip and get ice cream and candy.
Oh Wam Squam I miss you, you will always have a place in my heart!

Rain and cold weather prevented me from painting en plein air today so I attempted painting alla prima, Italian for "first attempt" or wet-on-wet. This painting technique requires the artist to paint layers of wet paint over layers of wet paint and it dates back to the Impressionists period. Monet and Van Gogh were known for their "on the spot" painting, usually finishing a painting in one sitting. "I Love You" is a painting I started this morning, painting very quickly, in the warmth of my home studio. The subject (very popular at this time of the year) was painted from the dozen red roses my husband gave me for Valentine's Day.

Several months ago when Bailey, a precious Yorkie, passed away I received a phone call from my friend Sharon asking me to paint his portrait for her sister-in-law. Those of you who have pets in heaven know that emptiness that losing a dear snuggly tail-waggin' friend creates in your heart.Bailey has a sweet smile that is infectious, and it was an honor to paint him.
I would love to have been there on Christmas when Cheryl received this gift from her family. Here's to YOU Bailey!
