…..for number of months without having written here! Not something to be proud of, though.
It’s been a relatively good year as far as exhibits go — the exhibit at the Port Clyde Gallery (Maine), where I was featured artist for 3 weeks during the summer, was successful. “Hedgerow”, which was accepted into the Pastel Society of New Mexico’s annual exhibit, was sold. (It’s in the Painting category here under “Northeast”.) It actually had a place waiting for it in my dining area, but better that it goes to a good home!
Working at the moment on three different pieces, with a few more on the back burners. The most recently completed Oyster Portrait: Pemaquid, #2, will be added to the website soon! It’s quite different from Pemaquid, #1, which was actually the first oyster portrait I painted. Not only have I improved (I think!), but the form of the second Pemaquid oyster is less compact and monochromatic than the second. Variation is very typical of oysters! I have accumulated well over hundred oysters which I’d love to paint, and in some cases, such as those from Island Creek (including Duxbury and Cotuit), I have probably over 20 different oyster subjects!
Thank you for visiting.
