Sunset in Chatham

Here's a picture I promised you of  the phenomenal sunset I saw in Chatham this past Saturday evening...the camera doesn't begin to capture its beauty!

Saturday the 30th is the reception for the Cape Cod for Pastels Only show - if you are lucky enough to be in the area stop in to the reception...I saw some incredible paintings being dropped off for the show.  Visit www.PastelPaintersSocietyofCapeCod.com for information on the show and reception.

A few weeks ago I told you that this piece was accepted into the Cape Cod Society's For Pastels Only juried show and that I felt so honored because of the incredible list of artists that I would be showing with.  I also promised to tell you which artist was accepted (whose books I own)...drumroll, please....well, it's Elizabeth Mowry!  If you are not familiar with her work, you should definitely look her up!!  Stan Sperlack (!) is also in the show, along with many other artists that I admire.  If you are in the area of the Cultural Center in Yarmouth, stop in and see the show which runs from June 26 through July 22.  
Visit http://pastelpainterssocietyofcapecod.com for details on the show and the opening reception.

Btw, I was down at the Cape this weekend to drop my painting off for the show, and I got some incredible sunset pictures while I was there...I will post one soon...

Thank You!

Unfortunately, I wasn't able to make the auction at the NAA last night and heard I missed an exciting time, but the piece I donated did go to a new home!  Thank you for supporting the Newburyport Art Association!!  Congratulations to all the artists that donated and sold some fantastic pieces!!

New Pastel!

"Break Time"

This painting was based on the view from my studio window...I couldn't see what everyone was looking at and I am still wondering what captured their attention.  "Break Time" recently went to a new home!

Stay tuned for details on the NAA's annual auction on June 16...

What a Weekend!

The incessant rain didn't damper my weekend - I got a call Saturday afternoon from the Newburyport Art Association telling me that one of my two paintings from the Regional Show sold as I was painting in my car (with the comforts of heat, a comfy seat and music!) for the Essex Art Center's annual wet paint auction.      
I was very lucky to have sold both my wet paint piece and my silent auction piece!  I am so happy that I was able to help make a nice contribution to the EAC - a special 'Thank You' to both couples that purchased the pieces and to the numerous people that bid on them.  People like you keep the EAC going!
