Monday Beginnings and Blessings from American Impressionist September McGee

Giorno di bucata - Wash Day

This is an oil on panel from my
travels to Italy. 
I stayed in the house directly to the left
of this wonderful woman carrying her laundry.
The Italian people are so loving, warm,
friendly and kind.
I am lucky to carry my laundry
to the laundry room!

This is one of the reasons I love to
paint, because each rendering evokes fond
memories of the people and places
I have been.  And, paintings
last a lifetime and are then passed on
to bless someone else's life!
The joy of painting and leaving
behind uplifting visuals
for all to see is truly a blessing!

On this beautiful day I offer all of
you blessings beyond belief
and more!

"Couch Series - A Special Night"

This is an oil on an Italian Pannelli panel
and is a brand new piece as part of
my Couch Series!

I just finished the final touches of this
piece and wanted to showcase it
in todays creative musings.
The model for this painting
attended my Gala Reception
for my Solo Exhibition.
She is a gorgeous woman
inside and out and
an honor to know
and love!

"I too attended September McGee’s Gala Reception and have to say that there were so many gorgeous themes in September's array of paintings - many of my friends commented on the Street Car and also the orchestra paintings. I had too many favorites to choose just one as I'm a big fan of all of her amazing work. What a lovely night to be surrounded by such beauty and the fact that September’s energy is so warm and inviting."

Monday Musings in April with American Impressionist September McGee

"Couch Series - Kailee and Muffin"

This piece is an emotional painting I
just completed of my daughter
Kailee McGee and our beloved cat, Muffin.
The rendering is a pastel on board
and the technique I used takes a
great deal of time to create, but I have
to admit I am happy with the results!
It has lively colors and petites touches
that give the painting an impressionist
flavor while still maintaining form
and a sense of realism.

With my solo exhibition now complete
and a huge success I am on to
many new and exciting projects.
Stay tuned for updates!

Monday Blessings!
