Just off the easel--"Bandit", shown above. When I was taking a break from my studio a few weeks ago, relaxing on my deck, I saw this red squirrel studying me from a nearby tree. I had plenty of time to study him too, as this painting shows! I'm working now on an equally frivolous painting of four chipmunks who tunneled a burrow in my back yard and poked their heads out daily to catch my attention and amuse me!
With beautiful fall weather providing wonderful light and reflections, I've been exploring the coast to find new resource material to paint clammers, dinghies, and other coastal scenes. I've been asked by the Yarmouth Chamber of Commerce to paint their poster again for the 2017 summer clam festival. My painting called "Wild Harvest", shown below, was used for the 2016 festival and is now hanging in the Chamber's office. I'm looking forward to going back out into the flats with clammers this fall, to develop another image for my next painting.
The Old Post Office Gallery in Georgetown, Maine, is now closed for the season and will not reopen. After 10 successful years in the gallery, the five partners have decided to spend their time on other priorities. Inquiries about the work of the five artists (Cory Hart, Marijke Damrell, Judy Conlan, Denise Rankin and myself) who have shown there may be sent to me for forwarding.
I continue to show my work at two other galleries: the Elizabeth Moss Gallery in Falmouth, Maine, and the Centre St. Arts Gallery in Bath, Maine. Both are open year-round. More information can be found on their web sites: www.elizabethmossgalleries.com and www.centrestartsgalleryllc.com
For the complete list of my shows in 2016, see the Exhibits page.
I would love to get your feedback on my art and my web site. Just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks, and I hope to see you at one of my galleries or shows in 2016.
