Dear Friends,
 
IF you are shivering, put yourself on the beach -
 
I started this painting last summer, probably when I was avoiding going back for a biopsy because the hospital wanted 500.00 up front.  It is a beach near where I live that still has some charm.  While I was waiting for good news/stupid news, a photo that a friend of mine took inspired me to paint again.  See if you can find the woman laying in the sand who took off her top in good faith that she was free and easy under the palm trees, and neither sun not censor would harm her.   Looks like you'll have to click on the thumbnail to get a better look -
 
This town gets me down, but the beach is still a place of healing for me.
 
And your warm, most individual and genuine friendship has been a life-saver for me.  I love looking at all your happy images -

Fondly - Mary

Dear Mary,
Thank you for this lovely painting!!!  The thumbnail needs to be enlarged, magnified to see your "thumbprint" and eloquent brushstrokes, choice of color, and romance with the ocean, the old Florida beaches, the happiness found on these once perfect oasis in time.  It made my day, looking at your remarkable painting.  You are a talented, sensitive and impressive lady of color. 
 
Thank you, again...
 
Love,
Indi

Indie, thank you.  Our climate is great right now.  The picture should get bigger if you double click on it - otherwise I will figure out how to paste it in.  Love to you from balmy moon breezes - Mary

Mary,
I LOVE that painting!
I think you are an amazing artist!
It took me away to a warm place... I need that now it is SOOOOO COLD here right now! It is going down to 10 or something ridiculous like that and we are getting snow.
I want to be on that beach getting some sun.
Thank you for sharing this with us.
Love,

Mary,
how nice of you to take us to a warm place. I see the woman.
A wonderful painting. I hear the wind swaying through the palm trees.....
The beach reminds me of my first vacation in FL in 1989.
Having been to Florida many times after that......
Sunny thoughts to you!

Lisa,
I find Flamingos quite mesmerizing, especially when they stand still and on one leg
