  1. All your paintings are beautiful though I especially love the landscapes,and your wonderful use of colour reminds me of Margaret Olley (she's one of my favourite artists). So glad you're going to enter the Parramatta Art Prize next year! Cheers, Cheryl.

    1. I checked Margaret out so many paintings, a lot I haven't seen before.
      You are right I do love colourful paintings.

  2. Goodness you are talented. Is there any reason you couldn't enter a couple?

    1. I can enter as many as I like but they are to have been painted in the last two years not sure why, some of these are much older than that.

  3. This is hard. Some I like and some I don't, but some of the ones I don't like are quite good and some of the ones I like aren't so good. Give us some time.

    1. I know what you are saying, it's the subject mater some artists are very good but what they paint doesn't appeal to me but they are still good paintings but not to my taste.
      I really like painting people but do not get a likeness very often but at least they now look human, my first efforts were a bit weid.

  4. Do you have to choose just one? I like so many of them, but if I had to choose one, it would be that sailboat moored to the quay.

    1. That one was painted over 35years ago I think I was home with my baby daughter so it's not allowed too old, but can do a new one with boats.

    1. Both of those are old ones so I can't use them but will try a few new ones.

  6. I am always in awe of your talent. It is truly, truly genius. Some of your landscapes are so beautiful in a misty sort of a way, that it brings tears to my eyes.
    You must favor one or some of your works. Which ones would that be? Your painting must bring you much peace and satisfaction.

    1. Funny I don't like to sell them but sometimes do them for friends and family, it looks like the landscapes are more to everyone liking.

    1. I like that one too but that's a family one and you have met the people, Joe likes that one too I will give it to him in the future.
      The boat one was done when I lived in the flats next to you so it's pretty old and has discoloured a bit gives it a bit of age.

  14. Really lovely, Merle - I love them all! I am particularly partial to seascapes and bird paintings and yours are just wonderful. You definitely should submit them to an art show or gallery! x Karen

  15. Merle, are you kidding me? You painted these? They are awesome! I love that first one, she looks so exotic. And some of these paintings reminded me of my own kids.........the bride reminded me of Jess getting married next year, the two girls with the red flowers and mother in the background holding her baby, and the neutral colors of the mother and her daughters. I like these very much, Merle. You are so talented, my friend.

    love, ~Sheri
