dreaming of Truro…

January is the time of year I start daydreaming about being in Truro(Cape Cod), where we go every summer to vacation. I love to imagine the balmy breezes and going barefoot in the sand vs. the cold january reality of wool socks and fleece.

Sky blue pink is what my family and I call this gorgeous sunset color that we see in Truro.

These two photos both show the same work – Shimmer – which was influenced by the Truro sky. The interference pigments change color depending on how the light is hitting the painting, hence the really different palettes in the two photos.

I currently have two works in a show at The Post Road Art Center Mixed Media 2009 juried show, and Mind(e) scape won first place in the show! The other piece in the show is Connexion. My piece Cellwalk is currently in the Preview Show at the Amazing Things Art Center, in Framingham.

Happy New Year!

Hello to 2009, beginnings are always exciting and we definitely need something fresh here in New England in the dead of winter.

Here’s a piece I finished last month, influenced by Miro’s Constellations.

so now we have 20 degree weather here in NE and my studio was so cold that I wanted some of those fingerless gloves. oh well, I started a new ink series that is really interesting and  had me excited to keep working.  I’ll post my mind(e)scape, but I’m psyched to show the new stuff at my Friday Stroll at my studio December 5??

hope to see you there.

so…also let me tell you that mindescape was a long intensive drawing to finish and not only is it a scape from mind but it was especially an escape to my mind.

We Check Out Bumpkin

Today we  got up and decided to go to Bumpkin Island, so we were on the road by 10:30. We took the wrong exit but still made it to Hingham Shipyard eight minutes before the ferry left. The day was warm but grey, the harbour was foggy and it was great to be on the water.

Bumpkin Island was a nice way to spend  two hours. We hiked all over the island, easy to get around in just over an hour. There are gorgeous wildflowers on the island, and a beautiful limelight. Photos of Bumpkin and my Limelight to follow.

I think there’s potential to continue my limelight series based on Bumpkin Island visuals.
