Because you have to paint what you love, that's why.

 

So here is a wall of sailing paintings at my gallery, Art and Soul.  The newest is the diptych upper right corner.  Working Boat races at Grenada Sailing Festival.  As I have said many times, when I stop loving it, I will stop painting it.

Susan Mains Art School

 

Ok, I know the title is ambitious, but after years of people asking for art lessons, I think I have found a way to do it.  I have started a video demonstration of how I paint, and all I ask is that you give me feedback.

That means helpful comments, not necessarily about the quality of the video.  This is a beta version, and what I am interested in knowing is if I am communicating well enough that you can follow the instructions.

So, watch the You tube video, subscribe, and follow the playlist.  Let me know what you think!

Happy painting.   By the way, you can get materials at Art and Soul at Spiceland Mall.

Violet Clouds Rush In

Rainy Day Regatta 24" x 36" Oil on Canvas 36"

 

The first day of the sailing festival--violet grey skies, gusts of wind, swells breaking over the boats. Then towards evening the light shining on the sails from the west--perfect.

Rainy Day Inspires Me!!!

Rainy Day Work Boats 30" x 24" Acrylic

So much rain at the Grenada Sailing Festival on Saturday last weekend.  Then little 5 minute bursts of sunshine--the sky put on quite a show!  So this is the first in a series of paintings that will come from this rainy day on the beach.  Good news is that I didn't get a sunburn.
