"Fish in Summer Waters" at Divine Cafe


"Fish in Golden Waters" (small photo left) has found its way to a new home. The owners of the painting are expecting their first child, and I understand the painting will be hung in the new baby's room... so nice. The painting in the larger photo, "Fish in Summer Waters" is my newest painting. My goal was to create another calming image of fish in water, but I wanted to try different colors and communicate a frothy appearance. I love the blues in this one. I tend to lean toward yellows and reds when I pick up a brush... so choosing blues and greens is a good change for me. Drop in at Divine sometime and tell me what you think. If you are interested in any of my work there, just let Bonnie know.
I've had some recent great news... the owners of Abercrombie and Finch, a restaurant on Lafayette Road in North Hampton, have asked me to create new art for their walls. They are remodeling soon to make the interior lighter and more open. I am wildly happy about this opportunity to show my work and excited for the owners in their new adventure. More on all of this progress later.
Thank you for looking. Have a great day.

Beacon Hill Art Walk

What a wonderful day it was at the Beacon Hill Art Walk in Boston this past Sunday. This was the first time I had entered this show and I just loved being able to get a glimpse of the private gardens and walkways in the community. All sorts of visual art in alleys, tents, and on terraces... plus musical performances filled the hill. The larger photo above of the tabletop arrangement is of a portion of my display for the show. And the smaller photo is of my painting titled "Martini Dance" (SOLD) which found its way to a very happy new owner at the art walk. I was also really honored that I won a third place ribbon that day for my body of work .... so exciting. And I look forward to next year's art walk! Keep in touch... my next blog entry will include new work, some commissioned art I will be starting, and information about how to purchase my pieces online.

Hope you all have a lovely day... Thanks for looking at my color!
