Oil on Canvas
(the painting)

Well, this was really fun and I didn't want Mom to miss it. If you look closely, there are two pink chairs above the lilies and to the right of the brightest house. You can see them through the opening in the fence. I was asked to do the cover for a new murder mystery for author Neal Sanders. I read the manuscript, and then Neal and I were back and forth with ideas and designs. My goal was to make it both compelling, and at the same time threatning, with a big dose of a hint of how garden clubs help to beautify our towns. In the end, we both loved it and it was used on the cover of his book! It is a great read and it is now available on Amazon or directly from the author!

Centered

When a friend and I took a trip to Cape Cod to paint, a great stop was Wellfleet. We found a perfect spot next to a building with shade and a great view! I found myself carefully positioning "Mom" exactly under the church steeple in the center of the picture. Later looking at it, I realized that this painting emphasizes Mom's central love in life besides her family: her church. The art I create is always zeroing in on the truth and I can usually only read it later.

Painting in Wellfleet

I am definitely starting to feel the itch of wanting to go 
to the Cape and paint again!

Against the Wind


Against the Wind

I wanted to paint a piece with the sea in the distance and lupines in front. This piece had to be adjusted dramatically from the photo I worked from. The houses were made smaller and the sea closer. I first painted the chair as it was in the photo, facing toward the viewer. I just didn’t like it, it didn’t feel right some how. So I took it all out (ouch!) and re-did it, using the pink chair in my studio as a reference, this time I faced the chair toward the house. This piece has areas painted very thinly as well as thickly and an intense sense of drama, unusual for me. I am still trying to get the message of it clearly, as there are several in there. It is clear that there is something going on with that white house, a conversation of sorts, but what does it mean? Are all those lupines representative of family? Is the white house on the edge of the canvas about looking forward to a hereafter? I certainly didn’t expect that to be such a strong element. My title gives a clue as to what I feel. Right from the beginning this piece has been called “Against the Wind” I always see the chair as counteracting the forces that are pushing against it and up the hill. My sister clarified it for me yesterday when I discussed the difficulty of producing a solo show while suffering from chronic pain: “You have a goal in mind and you will reach it!  I know the "where there's a will there's a way attitude".  It came from Mom. (This) attitude has been a big part of my life.  I have thought of her saying that often all my life and often said it to my kids.” Thank you, Georgie. You made that part so clear. But, hmmm, there is still that white house. Ideas welcome!
