Nellie, Erika and Topper .. oil on canvas '76 by maxy

Nellie, Erika and Topper .. oil on canvas '76 by 

This was something I did a long time ago and gave to Nellie Boyle as a present.. when she passed away I got it back.

This is an oil on canvas I did back in 1977 celebrating a beautiful, beautiful friendship filled with lots of fun stories and love.

I love to fly….. that’s what I do and what I’ve ever wanted to do and now… well as you can see I am doing just that! Now the wonderful world opens up for others who may want to also fly and capture incredible shots… I have an extra seat up yonder! yup yup yup! (and insurance etc…. :-)

Aerial shots flourish! :-) HUGS!

    Precious, Maxy, and beautifully done in a sort of impressionistic style. Love it!!

  • Thank you Frannie!!! Back then I did a lot of oils and enjoyed it so much too. When I came back to the Inn where I hung them and they were all gone, it sort of put a damper into painting for me. When I got two back I had given away (the owners passed away) I was so touched. Thrilled you like it! HUGS!

    Beautiful painting congrats on your feature

  • Thank you soooo much Maggie! I was so shy about putting it out – when I did this I was just a kid and at the time all my other work got stolen except for 2 pieces I gave as gifts. The owners passed away and the families wanted me to have them and they’ve been on my wall for years now. It’s so much fun to share! HUGS!
