st mary's by-the-sea

 (7x11)
St Mary's By-the-Sea is a retreat for nuns on the best piece of real estate on the Jersey Cape. I've painted it many times; it's distinctive red roof never loses its appeal.
Last summer the nuns agreed to let a class paint from their porches; then when we got down there (about 15 of us), they reneged! Worried about liability they claimed, their allegiance being more corporate than christian.

Lovely place! Sorry they reneged (I seem to remember that story on your blog at the time). Ah, wouldn't the world be so much better if we all weren't so worried about being sued!!!

Hai Laura:) What a beautiful watercolor! You did a great job on the dept under the roof. The red roof is very nice!

I've taken a long walk through a ton of your posts here, Laura--your work looks really excellent. So lovely, and your color palette always so pleasing. Keep it up!

Even though they reneged you captured it beautifully.
