A Picture Unfolds, Part II


Perhaps last month, you read my post explaining how fellow online writing group member, talented artist and soon to be published novelist Bridget Chicoine asked if she could paint one of my pictures.  Bridget’s book, Uncharted: A Story for a Shipwright, which will be published by Rhemalda Publishing in October of 2012, takes place in coastal New England.  She was looking for something appropriate to the story to paint.  I offered her up some photos and Bridget chose to focus her piece on this dilapidated dinghy tied up in our harbor.  



Bridget has finished her painting.  If you’d like to see her wonderful interpretation of this simple New England scene, click here.

Doh! look at all that peeling paint! Makes me want to start another! :)

Thanks for sharing your photography with me, and the blog-o-sphere! You have such an eye! :)

You know Liza, I just seriously can't come over here anymore. I am so homesick. I can smell the sea air and hear the seagulls.

This was really cool to see. My grandmother paints in oils and does it from photographs most of the time. I haven't seen a lot of people who do it this way. I am always amazed at how it turns out and this did not disappoint. Love the finished product and being able to see both parts.

Beautiful picture. I find myself wondering whose boat it was and how it got to be there. Interesting to see how the picture makes it all seem subtly different, she is indeed a gifted artist.

The painting is fabulous. I can smell the air, hear the water...

Tonja said...

That's incredible. I wish I could paint.

Kittie Howard said...

I gasped when I clicked over - so real, so pure - I'm in awe of the talent both of you have! And, er, why don't the two of you team up for a book of New England scenes? Seriously!

What a wonderful project for both of you. I love the haunting quality of Bridget's interpretation.

I went the t'other day but forgot to tell you how much I appreciate both your original vision and her interpretation of it.

I love seeing both your photo and Bridget's painting. similar, but different - very satisfying.

Oh, Liza! I love them both! Bridget did an awesome job capturing the beautiful simplicity that you originally saw through your lens. How lovely to have your work appreciated and celebrated by a fellow artist. Brava! to you and to Bridget! :~)
