The Things We Save - Grannie's Crystal Platter
Oil on Masonite
"The Things We Save" series continues, along with thoughts of my grandparents, parents, and all the others who have vanished from view. Memory of them is sparked by an inner thought, a certain phrase, or a fleeting moment that we might have shared. It's as if they are right in my midst. Buried deep inside my soul, alive and part of all that I am. People worry about being forgotten. Don't they know that the ones you love will carry you with them to the end of their days?
Summer is on the horizon, and I have been turning my attention to Maine.
I am very pleased to report that Gleason Fine Art, in Maine, will now be exhibiting my work. My paintings will be included in their wonderful collection of coastal art in their Boothbay Harbor gallery. A selection of my paintings will also be shown this summer at Islesford Dock Gallery, on Little Cranberry Island, Maine.
And I am delighted that I have been chosen for another national juried exhibition sponsored by Still Point Art Gallery. This one is called "Still Point V." 30 Artists were selected. The exhibition is online and one of my paintings will be published in the Summer Issue of the "Still Point Arts Quarterly", available June 1. I highly recommend subscribing to the Quarterly. It is a treasure trove of beautiful art and writing.
