Back to Elm Bank, another rendition of the Charles


Another lovely Saturday morning upstream on the Charles River. We paint at Elm Bank which is at the intersection of Wellesley, S. Natick and Dover (?) A lovely spot, most lovely before the families and their dogs arrive (I say curmudgeonly) This is an 11X14 stretched canvas, and I’m pretty happy.

Check out Laraine’s view of this scene, a bit to my right.

    I know this general area from growing up in nearby Needham. There seem to be countless locations that could occupy a painter for years. I found my way to your art blog by way of Laraine Armenti’s and I really enjoy your paintings. I love the boldness of your brush strokes. I wish I could paint with that confidence for just one day. It would be the equivalent of several dozen therapy sessions.

    Thanks so much and . . . HA! painting is my therapy, keeping me closer to sane in the past 2 years since I returned to it. I hope to explore spots all along the river, but I do best returning to a specific spot a few times – maybe the repetition contributes to the confidence and boldness.

    Laraine and Carol….My compliments to you both for your pastoral scenes of the river in my old home state, city, hood.
    keep it up

    Remember Helen Frankenthaler ? It’s kind of the realist version of that.
