My husband and I wanted to get away for a couple of days to celebrate our 34th anniversary. We decided that we would like to go to the beach, but since we didn’t plan ahead and this is one of the last weeks of summer, all the accommodations in the beach towns nearby were filled up. So we started looking a little further inland. We ended up staying in Millsboro, Delaware, which is the town where my husband’s grandmother grew up and where my father-in-law lived his childhood.
When Rick’s father was little, St. Mark’s, an Episcopal church, used a circuit preacher from Georgetown and he and his parents lived in the rectory. We went looking for the rectory, but discovered that it had been torn down in 2006 and now a meditation garden and labyrinth stand in the lot next to the church. Here is the picture I painted of the small church of St. Mark’s. We’d like to go back when the church is open to see the inside.
“It takes 120 bad paintings to know something about painting.” – Larry Seiler as quoted by Jeff Mahorney in his blog
Each painting is small in format and should be completed in about an hour or less.
My goals are to improve my technique, to paint faster, and to gain experience with a variety of subjects.
