"Release" (20x24)
Greetings!

I just love these warm colorful days!

Just wanted to share with you some art news from my studio and from hundreds of miles away.

Studio News:
My recent series of autobiographical and intuitive works focuses on personal family objects and stories, and has brought me to the pieces I call "Vibrancy" and "Release".  (not professionally photographed - they are not so pink)

"Vibrancy" (9x12)

As usual, the family objects called to me and a painting developed from there.

Commonly, my approach has been to create a composition of an imagined interior in which to include the subject.  With "Vibrancy" and "Release" my process was different.

I enjoyed the beautiful cobalt vase on my kitchen table, which held  a flower arrangement of lively energy extending upward.  I was drawn to paint my interpretation of it, as usual, but  I found myself not creating a composition.  Instead I painted the vibrant energy subject directly,  and the rest of the area wanted to be undefined - non-objective.  This was the painting "Vibrancy".

I felt enriched by that arrangement on my kitchen table for awhile, and then I watched as the flowers slowly wilted and died.  I kept it like that for a time, being open to this new possibility.  Then I brought the dead arrangement in the family vase to my studio to paint: an observed subject in an undefined energy field.  In this painting - "Release" - something is complete, energy is released; open to something else.  Something! 🙂

International News:

It is exciting to be participating in an artist residency along the banks of the charming Richelieu River in Beleoil, Canada.  Located between Montreal and Quebec, during this cultural exchange we will visit these cities, local artist studios, exhibit our work, and attend artist workshops. It will be wonderful.


Back in my studio, I always enjoy creating lively interpretations of special people, pets and objects in my clients lives, commissioned by them.  Here are a few recent ones:

   
"Maya and the Boys"   (9x12)

                     

"Sara, Biz, and Buddy" (8x10)
                                              
"Anne and Bailey's Great Elephant Adventure" (9x12)

Thanks, and best wishes for a lovely summer!

Blessings!
