Lots of fun and color at Diane's.... You are invited!

Join us Saturday, March 7, from 7 to 9 pm, at 51 Stratham Green in Stratham, NH for a light evening of color and sparkle. Diane Smith's second annual "Almost Spring" open house welcomes Lisa Cochran of Lily Designs, Lori Martone Pottery, and me with my original paintings and cards. Lots to see and enjoy as we count down to Spring's beginning! I will have several medium sized paintings, my tiniest "Tiny Paintings", plus card packs which include four new designs. Lisa will show her always luscious, one-of-a-kind beaded jewelry, and Lori will bring out her handmade pottery. Directions are to the right. Hope you can join us! The painting above is titled "Yellow Sky at the Lake" and will be at Diane's on March 7th. It is 6x6 on masonite, sealed with varnish and framed.
Everyone is welcome to soak up our color ... please, contact me for questions or respond to this post in the comments section if you think you can make it.
Thanks for looking!


Along the Squamscott River

Somewhat abstract but still indicative of flowing river scene, this painting was done from a photograph I took this past fall. I love so many things about Exeter and the view of the Squamscott from Swasey Parkway is high on the list. This little painting is only 4x6 inches. It is unframed on sturdy paper board and sealed with a protective varnish. The price is $70. Contact me if you are interested in seeing this art.
I was inspired yesterday to take a ton of photographs of some of my favorite spots in Exeter. The sun was great, the snow still covers the ground, and the bare trees allowed me to get some really nice details of buildings you can't see in the summer because of the leaves. I'll be completing some of those paintings this spring.
Thanks for looking.


Soft Ginkgo Leaves Original Painting

SOLD This is one of my favorite paintings, just completed for Renee Carman of Mandeville Canyon Designs. This is a 24x30 inch acrylic painting on canvas sealed with a UV resistant varnish. It is another in a series of paintings to be used for a model beach cottage in Wells, Maine. When I work on paintings like this, I get to explore my graphic design roots and love of imagery in textile design. This painting can be anything... an image of calm for a space, a burst of color for a simple room, or a statement of organic intrigue. This particular painting is not for sale, but I can paint another of similar image and color. I hope you get the chance to take a look at Renee's model cottage in March. It is one of five models that will be open for preview... more to come in a later post. Leave a comment here....would love to know what you think.
Have a wonderful Valentines weekend!
