Fun Stuff – September 15, 2015


Mural based on "Appetizers"

Greetings Friends and Family!

This upcoming Columbus Day Weekend the Gardiner Open Studio Tour will occur (more about this in a later newsletter).  In order to warm up for it, I had the opportunity to paint a mural on a shed on Main Street in Gardiner, assisted by well known street artist and muralist Lady Pink, a fellow GOSTer.  The image was adapted from my painting "Appetizers", and shows a couple celebrating a special occasion surrounded by their dogs, cats, and a bird. The shed owners Anne Marie and her daughter Winter are very pleased. It is great that local art has a prominent place in Gardiner!  Stop by to see it when you are there. 🙂

In mid August several artists and I from NY, NJ, French Canada, Spain and Greece had a wonderful cultural exchange during an artist residency in Beleoil, Canada.  We had a lovely opening reception for our show at a la Maison de Culture Villebon, visited Montreal, Quebec City, and other historical sites, participated in artist workshops and painted plein air. Because of this experience I enjoyed creating some  landscapes, as well as mixed media acrylic paintings which have inspired me for more.

It was really fun to receive this photo from my friends Rich and Siv sitting in a favorite spot at home in Stockholm, Sweden, with my painting "Chrylser Building".

Thanks, and enjoy these days of summer as they turn into autumn!

Blessings!
