The next Grape Bay painting

Grape Bay is still one of the places in Bermuda where there are few people and a great expanse of beach to gaze at.  It's a little inaccessible even though it's open to the public.  Here I was drawn to the long stretch of the beach as it meets and contrasts with the enormous sky.  You can feel how small the earth is here and I often feel like I'm standing at the edge of the earth, just on the edge of the galaxy, gazing off into space.

Bermuda Painting

The windjammer II Gallery in Bermuda is having a small painting exhibit soon.  Racing against time, I've still tried to give myself space to be fully present to painting and forget the deadline.  I love the indeterminate space at the water's edge.  The little rock pool at the left and the distant clouds on the right seem to be the poles of the contrast here.

Southern Vermont Art Center

I drove to Southern Vermont Arts Center to deliver some paintings that have been accepted in a juried show!  The Collector's Exhibit opens Saturday, November 17th.

Here are the paintings in the Yester House Gallery propped up against the wall where I dropped them off.   You can view them elsewhere on my website for more detail.

 I've always loved the landscape at SVAC.  It's nestled into the mountains around Manchester, VT.  I had some other work in a group show there back in 1975 and I'm excited to be showing there again!

 There's a very cool new sculpture of a female warrior looking spirit woman on the way in there now.
Here she is: "The Muse," by Jack Howard-Potter.  There's an amusing time lapse video about it's installation last summer on the SVAC website.  And here's the link to his website:


This day made me really happy. :)

What a difference a day makes

Our street before Storm Sandy:

                                                                Our yard after Sandy:

No power, no heat, no art :(
Using the fireplace every night and cooking on the gas stove.  Not so bad.

And good news!  I was just accepted to the Collector's Exhibit, and the Little Picture Show at the Southern Vermont Art Center and have been busy framing work that was selected.  I'll be driving up to Manchester this week to deliver the pieces.  So excited!
