Calendar Girls 2016

I haven’t been posting in awhile so it is time to catch up!  It has been a very busy winter. I had a knee replacement October 26th. I am happy to say it feels great and I am thrilled to be out of pain.  I have been busy making sketches and preparing for summer open studios (if you can imagine that).

I hope you enjoy seeing these pieces. If you are interested in any of these,  you should know that they are all framed and available for sale. You can email me at susanmedyn(at)cox.net.

Have you found Mr. Beads?

You will know where the title comes from.

Hot Tamale!

Hot Tamale ©

I am going back to doing more works on watercolor paper as I have better control of colors than on Aquabord.

This was done a while back, but I always have loved all the conversations going on. Can’t you just see the tall figure on the right scolding the poor man with the beret. I have no idea what he has done, but she isn’t happy.  Also the green and yellow creatures seem to be having quite an intent discussion. Most fun to me are the 3rd and 4th creatures from the right. Usually my creatures are communicating to one another or listening, but these 2 are posing!

This is a 14″ by 11″ Ink and Watercolor framed in a hand made cherry frame.

Poppies Party

2bees©

The poppies are blooming gloriously all over Europe and I love to think of having a party among the fields of  them.  Although my work is in 2 exhibits in Europe right now, unfortunately I am not.

I learned yesterday that my best cousin, Mary Sue, passed away at her home in Nova Scotia, with her husband and children at her side. Mary Sue battled brain cancer 3 years, outliving the one year prognosis. In her first year of her illness she wrote a book on daily meditations, each one a reason to be grateful. I can’t imagine how her family is going to deal with this loss. She is a nutritionist,  and her husband is a cancer researcher. They developed a formula to save children who have a particular amino acid deficiency. Her brother and sister in law’s son  and daughter were diagnosed with this rare disorder- Propionic Acidemia. This formula has allowed children to survive much longer than their life expectancy of 6 months to 2 years.

Mary Sue and I spent nearly every weekend of our childhood at one another’s house. We would play day long monopoly games, keeping score, although we always seemed to be even at the end of a month. I will deeply miss her and her deep love for her family, life, good food and good stories.

This is a 6″ by 6″ Ink and Watercolor on Aquabord. All proceeds from the sale of this painting will go toward to the Propionic Acidemia Foundation which is striving for a cure for this rare autosomal recessive disorder.

Lobster Party

LOBSTER PARTY ©

I must say I struggled away with this lobster. Initially he was colored in very light blues with hints of red. Yes, I wanted him to look like he had just come out of the sea. When I looked at my work  from a distance I felt that the values were too close, so this guy got some make up. I have seen bluish-red lobsters but really, if you are wearing dancing shoes you can be any color you want to be.

This is a 7″ by 5″ Ink and Watercolor on Aquabord.  I have started on a sea series and hope that I can do justice to what I imagine under the sea parties must be like.  To purchase click the Paypal link below.

Captain’s Quarters

CAPTAIN'S QUARTERS, 14" x 10", $500 frameD

CAPTAIN’S QUARTERS, 14″ x 10″, $500 framed

So occasionally my creatures are a tad erotic. There are a few in this painting. You know that I do have fun hiding things within my paintings. The captain is quite oblivious to what is going on around him.  The cool cat sure would like to get to know the lady in the red dress a bit better. The red cat obviously already has gotten to know the winged woman he is talking to.  Amazing how much we miss if we aren’t paying attention.

I am thrilled to see so many birds at the feeders now. I noticed the egrets have returned although they had a few very cold wet weeks they had to deal with. As I drive to and from work I saw them huddled in Adamsville Pond.  Below is a photo of them in the summer. They use this spot as their rookery.

Who Designed Your Clothes?

WHO DEISGNED YOUR CLOTHES?, 12"x9" Ink and Watercolor, $400 framed.

WHO DESIGNED YOUR CLOTHES?, 12″x9″ Ink and Watercolor, $400 framed.

I don’t watch commercial television very often but last night I was watching a movie on Oxygen and felt assaulted by the number of commercials for spring clothing. I don’t know if there was a time that I ever remember enjoying these commercials but I was struck by the influence they must play if you are watched a lot of TV. Enough of that.

I prefer the lovely clothes these creatures are wearing.

Cats in Coracle

IMG_3864

This is a  commission of cats in a sail boat that I did for Captain Susan Smith. I wasn’t sure what a coracle was but she responded to my  proposal drawing with “Cats in Coracle” so I took that to mean it was a go. I  looked up  coracle and found it to be  an ancient round craft used in Wales. In case you have any doubt, here is an image of a coracle. I know my boat is leisurely drifting.

And thinking of commissions, this is a great time of year to order a painting for a holiday gift. I still have time to get a few more in. Just email me at susanmedyn@cox.net

It’s that time again to make the quince paste and quince jam. I am going to try out a crock pot for the paste. Right now the house smells heavenly from 20 pounds of cooking quince.
