Rooms To Go

The Fun Rooms are… well, Fun

Some time ago I posted, A Room With City View, my entry into the American Juried Art Spring and Summer Show. At the time I was doing my “Happy Dance” because the piece was accepted. More happy dancing, because that painting won the award for Watermedia.

In the post I suggested that perhaps this summer I would spend time painting more “outrageous rooms.” The feedback was positive and the mood was right. My studio is full of the quiet chuckling of a happy painter creating fun rooms.

Pictured below is number 5 in the series.

Currently “under construction” is an acrylic on canvas, Tea For Three: Van Gogh, Matisse, and Me. Just hope I can bring my idea alive in the next weeks. If I do, you will see it here.


  1. Congratulations, Marge! That's great you won the award for water media. What an honor and well deserved. Both of these paintings are wonderful. They make me feel good just looking at them. The patterns and your sense of color are awesome. I love pattern, but I never seem to have the patience to pull them off. I'm going to have to push myself to try. Your tea party sounds fantastic. I can't wait to see it!

  2. Hi Marge - I love the freedom in these paintings! They're full of joy and energy - with beautiful color and sense of movement - well done!
