September Blues

Today is Labor Day. Living in a beach town, this signifies the end of Summer. Always makes me a little melancholy. I love the beauty and color splendor of Autumn, it's just too short here in beach town. Winter, well, I don't even like the word. In the meantime, life slows down at the beach, the tourists are gone, the place becomes magical with moments of solitude, wildlife come out of hiding, I couldn't imagine a life without this refuge in my backyard.

This painting is a little more on the abstract side. Used the rectangles concept from the DPW challenge last week. It offers a freedom of color and movement, and most important, I really enjoyed this painting.


  1. Beautiful painting! I am a summer girl as well. I guess we'll just have to make the best of winter.

  2. What a gorgeous and luminous painting!
    I love it!!

  3. I love this piece, Maggie. Love it.
