Work in Progress Oils by Mary Hughes








Waiting isn't my particular specialty, yet it seems to be something I do a lot. So I try to make the best of things while I wait.... so this time around I'll paint my way through the waiting.

These like many things are unfinished/in progress. The first is a scene I see everyday. I fell for this tree right away and knew it had to be the center of a project. The finished painting will be in fog.

The next two are different perspectives on a tart I fell in love with at the grocery store (in progress).

The last painting, also unfinished is the wall and light outside my door. At night a lovely variety of moths congregate there. I'm especially taken with the white ones. The moths are not yet painted in so you don't need to strain looking for them. :)


I am enjoying taking advantage of what is around me and finding things worthy of a painting. There is a lot when we take the time to notice.

Mary, thanks for your comment on John Travolta. He was really fun to paint. I love your blog and art. You are REALLY talented. Love the birds. They are beautiful and feels like you can touch them.

They are all enticing in their unfinished state but I especially love the tree...wonderful greens. Noticed it in yesterday's post and at first thought it was complete. I am a 'fog lover' and am looking forward to seeing it in fog too...Thanks so much for your recent comments Mary!

Thank you for your comments on my paintings on AIG! I am just now exploring your blog and really having fun looking at your work. What a treat!

We have Michigan in common - I lived in Kalamazoo for 5 years. I'm a southern girl so after the 1st winter I was ready to move back to the south. However, the summers were just wonderful and the lakes are awesome!

Your painting of the trees is beautiful and has so much detail. I find trees difficult to paint, so I am in awe! Great work!
