Cooper's Island, Offering

12X16, oil, 2015

I have good memories of beginning this painting on location.  It was bit of a stormy day with light flashing through the clouds illuminating the crystal clear water.  The sunlight and clouds darted around one another.  But what attracted me to this scene is that line of reddish brown Sargasso seaweed that arcs back and along the left side of the beach.

 This painting is on display at Bermuda Society of Arts in their member show.  It's a pleasure to think of it being   there.   I appreciate all the BSOA does to encourage local artists!

Hidden View

Hidden View, 2014, 30X24, oil

This is an invented scene composed of elements from my morning walks with my husband and our dog.  A neighbor's garden had these dead branches right in the middle of her fruiting and blooming rose bush.   I'm guessing they were caused by the cicada infestation earlier that year.  I liked the sense of a presence beyond the life and death in the garden, hence the title.  I hope that you enjoy it.

Hidden Wish

New tripych completed!

Hidden Wish, 2014, oil, 4'X9'

These paintings were inspired by a giant philodendron growing in a large pot at Rosedon Hotel in Bermuda.  Each panel is 4'X3'  I was drawn to the contrasting architectural elements of the cool tiles and doorways with the massive organic tropical growth.  Within the huge plant there are many layers and stages of growth happening at the same time.

Recently I've identified my  Bermuda flora paintings as  "plantscapes of the lifecyle!" 

I hope that you enjoy them.
