Rhythm & Hues Exhibit – Copley Society of Art

The small works show will be on view at the gallery until the end of August.  It’s also viewable online at the Copley Society of Art website.  However, if you find yourself in Boston, and want to visit, the gallery is currently open to the public only on Saturdays and Sundays, 12pm-5pm and by appointment during the week.  Please contact the gallery directly if you have any questions about their health compliance procedures. 

I’ve enjoyed watching birds since I was a child so it’s no surprise this past-time would become a natural extension in my artworks.  The rural setting where I reside offers an abundance of birds as subjects for my paintings.

2020 Adirondacks National Exhibition of American Watercolors

One of my watercolors has been accepted into this year’s show at the View Arts Center in Old Forge, New York.  My painting, “Leaves of Autumn” featuring a ruffed grouse scratching about in the fallen leaves was the artwork that made the juror’s cut.  So glad to be a part of the exhibition this year.   Despite the current health crisis, it’s nice to know The View is still hosting the show.  The exhibit is open to the public from August 8th through September 27th.  Be sure to check with The View Art Center for more details and health guidelines.

“Watercolor 2020” Exhibit – Bryan Memorial Gallery

The Bryan Memorial Gallery has re-opened it’s doors to welcome the public for several exhibitions of art, including a new watercolor art show.  I’m honored to have had three paintings accepted into this juried exhibit.  The show has been extended to run all summer through September 7th, 2020.  I’m assured the gallery is practicing all health measures and guidelines to ensure a safe and enjoyable visit if you want to stop in to see the art.  I recently learned this painting, “The Great Escape” has sold.  Finally, something for the good news jar!  Not to worry… I have a few more paintings in the show that are available.

Women In Watercolor International Juried Competition

I’m a bit behind in relaying this news but I’m thrilled to announce I’m the recipient of an award in the 2020 Women In Watercolor International Juried Competition!  There were 1200 entries from over 50 countries and my painting, “Social Networking”, featuring a flock of Common Red-polls was chosen in the Wildlife/Animal category.  Something for the “Good News” jar this year for sure!!  Any and all of these bright moments help to make, what has turned into a difficult year, much better.

Wild Things… we love to see you! (photo adventures)

Jumping into the car and going for a drive down back roads, just to see where it goes, is a regular past-time we’ve taken up again.  Especially now when getting out of the house is a must if we find ourselves restless from self isolating.  I’m all for staying at home but there are times when you just need to go somewhere... anywhere.  We’re trying to be careful to keep our distance and NOT go where there are lots of people so driving in the car and looking for wildlife fits the bill.  There are also favorite spots we frequent from previously successful viewing rides.  We keep a count of everything we see and judge the ride a success by the number and variety of wildlife and/or birds we come across along the way.  Some rides are memorable for the jackpot of sightings, like a moose or a bear, but we enjoy the ride even if nothing much is seen.  Sometimes it’s all about being together on the journey…
