“ Pam & Mary, Old Friends… ”



Lots and lots of laughs
and the freedom to just be;
old friends, together…

© 2016 Pamela MacCarthy




This past Summer I had a chance to visit with
my old friends, Mary & Tom…

As with my family, I had not seen them in so many years,
it was so good to reconnect, once again.

Mary took me for a drive around Pine Bush,
the town I went to school,
and we grew up in…

Some has changed, and some has stayed the same.

The light, and the way it falls on things there, forever stays in my memory,
it was so nice to see it, again…

I went back to my childhood home,
and collected leaves from the Japanese Maple,
on the front yard…

I took some photos, but mostly I just wanted to experience it,
with my old friend…

I brought my paints with me, and I decided to show Mary and her grandson Valentino
how to paint “Etegami” style…

We had a lot of fun this Summer, hanging out
in Mary’s extensive gardens-
Her many flowers and vegetables were good subject matter, for my painting!

I enjoyed the meals we had together,
and also seeing their daughters, Maria, (Valentino’s mom) Tina, and Kelly,
and their husbands and significant others…

My sister Bonnie observed this about Mary & me; ”You guys don’t see each other for years,
and you just pick up, where you left off”…


Yep. That’s pretty much it.

On my last visit with Tom and Mary, before returning back to Tokyo,
I made chicken curry for us all.

We sat outside sipping brews, while listening to WPDH 101.5, Classic-Rock
After dinner we took a drive out to a nearby ice-cream stand, for ice cream cones.

This is as American as it gets, on a hot Summer night,
and it felt good to experience it, again!

“ Pam, Tom, & Mary, Summer 2016… ”




It was a great, great visit,
that will carry me, ‘till next time.



I went further upstate, to see my sister Wendy.

That will be my next story…

This is another work I did during my Summer trip to NY.

Here is a song to compliment…

“ From Bonnie’s Garden ”



Black Ink, Watercolor, Oil Pastels
on
Watercolor Paper

2, 9 X 14 panels
22.8 X 35.5 cm, (X2)




Welcome October, my favorite month of the year!



While visiting New York this past Summer,
I stayed first with my youngest sister Bonnie.

Amongst Bonnie's many capabilities, she is quite a gardener;
she grew flowers, fresh herbs, fruit and vegetables,
throughout the season…

I’d walk along with her, as she weeded,
and picked…

One day, she discovered this huge zucchini,
that somehow was overlooked, beneath the leaves…

I had to paint it, along with the colorful ripe plum tomatoes,
and a strawberry…

Bonnie and her husband Joey
are both excellent Italian cooks…

Pots of beautiful tomato sauce were made with the plum tomatoes, and zucchini;
I prepared garden salads to complement the dinners…

This painting is a good memory of that time…





Till Next Time...
