BEST VIEWED IN LARGER VERSION!!!

Empty Nest.. comes from my life experience of knowing what a mom feels like when her children leave home…although I am very lucky mine are still very close in mileage.. that empty space in my heart still aches..for not seeing them every day…
“My poem I wrote on 11/09/2009…about being an EMPTY NESTER is found here”:

acrylics on gesso treated framed stretched canvas..16"x 20"
staples on back side.. canvas sides painted to blend with painting and ready to hang.. with or without a frame…
this was painted in only two colors.. forest green and cream white.. has almost a black and white appeal to it.. when gazed upon in person.. but the subtle colors do shine through..
original is for sale.. contact me via.. bmail.. thank you!

This is my second painting for 2013… the painters block is gone!
Which I have been suffering with for a couple of years now.. due to personnel issues.. I have taken the steps to take care of myself and pick up my paint brushes and please me… and I hope this pleases others also.. but this was about a new journey for linmarie!

I thought long and hard about what everyone has been expressing to me.. about painting what makes me feel good.. about places I love to be.. for me.. it is the forest,, the swamps and marsh lands…
I find peace there… amongst the trees and birds and frogs and crickets .. when they sing to me…I feel like I am the only person in the world.. maybe that is not normal.. or right.. but it brings me peace!
The sounds of a creek, a river.. a tiny little rippling stream…and all the chattering creatures who speak to me as I pass their domain..make me smile… I am one in the forest,, I am one at the marsh… I am one in nature and I thank the Lord he has blessed me with this gift of appreciating such!
I hope you all enjoy my misty, forest, swamp place painting .. as much as I did the last couple of days creating it.. thank you to all my friends here on RB.. for all your encouraging and supportive comments especially this last year for me.. you have no idea what it has done to bring me back to doing what I love most.. loving and taking care of my family and friends.. and expressing it in paint…
