King's Gap Therapy II by Daily Painter of Pennsylvania Mary Beth Brath

 
King's Gap Therapy II by Mary Beth Brath
16x20" Acrylic Plein Air
 
I had a wonderful time painting at King's Gap State Park in South Central PA yesterday with fellow Daily Painter of PA Claire Beadon Carnell.  I actually painted over something that I started to block in several years ago at Fort Hunter PA. This was a great feeling of letting go of a bunch of poisonous comments that have been made to me and about me by a certain male artist. By the time I left the gardens, I mentally did an Amish Shunning of the person. Perhaps eventually I will be able to pray from him. Adios Mr. H.
 
I have worked out many emotions over the years while I paint. Hope this did not sound negative...it was actually a good thing.

I think the best paintings are emotional ones. When i first saw this image I thought- what a lovely painting.

This painting is full of grace and beauty - taking some grasses and elevating them to a lovely painting! Really beautiful, Mary Beth!

You are always giving of yourself to others..it's hard to imagine someone wanting to hurt you. This painting has a wonderful wispy quality, the grasses dancing in the wind along with your worries.
We love you Mary Beth!
