I'm taking an online course on simplification. So far it's a lot of fun, and forces me back into the studio — a long, 20-yard walk in sub-zero temperatures and over a foot of snow these days. After working on my homework and 3 additional works-in-progress, I finished up my day with this 8 x 10, a snow scene painted over a badly failed, 2-year-old painting. My back yard.
It's been so long since I shared anything here that I thought it must be time. Here's a recently-finished painting of a doorway in St. Augustine, FL. It looks somewhat European, I think. Le Macaron, 8 Cathedral Street.
My Annual Holiday Open Studio is coming up! This one features smaller works and gift items, though larger works will be available to browse through. In the meantime, I'm working on a commission, several new 8x10s and one gigantic (for me), 24" x 36" architectural piece. Hope to see you!
The Illuminations Opening is approaching! Join us in celebrating the artists whose paintings are gracing our waiting room walls. Illuminations is a rotating art exhibit housed in the Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center, designed to enhance our environment of care and reflect the diversity of the communities we serve. The Opening was Tuesday, October 17.
Shown: "Red Doors", oil on panel, 24" x 24" S O L D My ETSY Shop
Just delivered 13 paintings to Massachusetts General Hospital's "Illuminations" program, where paintings are displayed on a rotating basis in the hospital's waiting rooms. My work will hang through mid-January and the opening reception is Tuesday evening, October 17. The public is welcome. I'm finishing up a piece of furniture for an auction to benefit Household Goods, a local organization that supports families transitioning into homes. household goods.org/artful-goods
Looking forward to my annual Open Studio. Hope to see you!
As Summer draws to a close, I have just finished this 24" x 24" oil painting from St. Augustine, Florida. I'll have the sun and palm fronds to remind me of warmer days ahead. If the painting finds a new home, well — I'll just have to be satisfied with the digital image.
