Don’t Throw Me in that Brier Patch!

IMG_3530

I am worried right now. Worried for loved ones and for people I have never met.

We all worry for our brave healthcare workers, the grocery store employees and our mothers. Not to mention the worry over finances.

But during this time of isolation and fear there is a silver lining: a time to be quite, a time to observe and importantly a time to create.

With the lessening of obligations comes a heightening of focus.

What are you dreaming about? What can you bring into existence over then next month or so?

My life has only changed a smidge because I always work alone, but there is quietness in the air that wasn’t there before.

I would love to say that I’m busy sewing masks or doing some other tangibly useful thing. No, I have begun a series that is the antithesis of social distancing. Continuing my motif on personified produce, I am now working up a series about fruity familiarity. Paired pears and intertwined peels celebrate love, and intimacy.

Here are some of the paintings I have just begun.

Back during our first Gulf War, I was painting cows: Funny cows. And I was horrified that people were dying out there and I was painting silly cows. Then I realized that there was a need and a place for what I did. That something light and fun was important.

And so it goes again. I am offering up something warm and light and full of love. That is my contribution. It’s what I do best. I don’t even know how to operate my sewing machine.

Artist Talk

It’s hard to believe that it’s been 3 weeks since the opening at Dryden Gallery. I am so thankful for all the people that came out and shared the evening with me. It was a whirlwind! We didn’t even have time to take any photos!

44830483_2091580697566979_8461757658192412672_n-1

Now it’s time to think about the gallery talk at Dryden November 3rd at 2pm. I’m not accustomed to public speaking so I’ve billed the event as a conversation, but I did write something about the possibility of art enabling people to see things with new eyes. If there is a reason for painting, then that is my reason, to offer the gift of seeing newly and feeling deeply. I’ll also bring some of my materials and answer questions on process. Come if you can!

 

Wrapping Things Up

IMG_2554

Never has time moved so fast.

Twenty-one months to paint the 147 miles of Narragansett Bay seemed like a good idea twenty months ago.  A better idea would have given me twenty-one years.

When Save the Bay, Dryden Gallery and I first planned this show, I intended to paint the highlights of our bay: the beaches, parks, towns and of course the light houses, bridges and historical spots. I soon reconsidered that list. It seemed too much like a boring illustration assignment. I have a personal relationship with the bay and I wanted to depict what I love about it. This actually increased my list!

Now after twenty months and 130 paintings the “to paint” list is still much longer than the “have painted” list.  Since Donna Parsons, the director of Dryden Gallery, is unwilling to postpone the show another ten years, and because there is only 300 linear feet of wall space in the gallery, the show will proceed as scheduled!

What you will see are moments in time that caught my attention. Paintings of life- sized waves that beg you to jump in or flee, depending on your disposition.

Twenty Four foot wave oil painting on five aluminum panels

There are tiny sketches of swells that mesmerize beach-goers.

 

You will see how one inlet changed throughout the year.

 

There are portraits of wildlife inspired by the residents of Save the Bay’s aquarium.

And of course, you will find plenty of landscapes.

Speaking of the landscapes, each painting will be numbered and flagged on a map. If you don’t find a painting of your favorite spot, you can commission one! Part of the proceeds will still go to Save the Bay.

Of course we aren’t done until the fat lady sings. I bought a paddle-board in order to paint offshore, and I hope to do a small twilight piece from the water soon. I want to get to more islands as well, so if you have a boat and some time this month, please let me know!  A few more wildlife paintings would help round out the show as well.

Suffice it to say, I will keep working till the last minute. My garden has never been so overgrown, my house never so dusty. There are books collecting on my bedside table and friends awaiting outings. I have given this show my best effort and I hope you can celebrate it with me on October 6th at 7pm at 27 Dryden Lane, Providence RI.
