Southern Comfort

from my last visit to Naples, FL . still there in spirit!



Here in Boston, the temperature still struggles to rise above 20 degrees as the snow tirelessly taps at my studio door.
Outside… green forfeits to white... grey is the new blue.

INside the studio, my palette undoubtedly reflects these pale winter months. Luckily, warm memories and the inevitable arrival of brighter days never fail to revive vibrancy of brush stroke and spirit.

As I dream of sunshine and the unfrozen ocean at my feet… I'm comforted by the thought that many of my paintings dwell in the very atmosphere that inspired them.
With 75 degree days and balmy night breezes beckoning me, this month I'll just have to live vicariously through my work represented at Trudy Labell Fine Art in Naples, Florida.

If you're fortunate enough to be in this beautiful area of the world, you can visit the gallery to view a large selection of my work... and perhaps bring home a bit of sunshine for yourself!

Below: a selection of work currently available at the gallery, 
including new pieces featured in the benefit exhibition event “Night Music”

Flashback Summer / Fastforward Fall

 Windows @ Solo Exhibition, Newbury Street Boston. July/August 2013


 pre-show prep in the studio -Summer 2013


REWIND: Summer 2013


    This past Summer seemed the polar opposite of endless or lazy. (ah yes...the exact  definition of what my favorite season should rightfully be.) On the contrary, my Summer flew by FAST, furious and fell far too short. 
    The long days of lounging carefree by the waters edge, feet planted warmly in the sand, watching the waves roll calmly by, were sadly few and far between. Although I consider that very scenario my all time favorite and most inspirational activity, instead...I happily (and longingly) stayed busy re-creating that nostalgic feeling in the studio for others to enjoy. 
    July and August proved 100% worth the sacrifice, with an immensely successful solo show in Boston and love floating in from all over the world. My heart was full of gratitude not only for the unbelievable support ...but for the lesson learned that you will always get back what you passionately put into that which you love. 
   
    September brought a bit of a whirlwind, keeping me busy maintaining my sails at every moment. Gratefully, October has landed me right where I should be. Back at the helm, full steam ahead, with a bounty of beauty before me. I'm anxious to discover what the crisp coming season will bring to my table. Change is in the air.

THANK YOU to everyone who came out and helped fill my opening reception with incredible energy and love!

New Solo Show Announcement

 "The Grass is Always Greener" 36" x 36" *NEW at Lanoue Fine Art


I can't believe it. Spring is only one short week away!
For most of us here in New England, that is fabulous news.
These few grey months creep by mundanely slow and treacherously cold.
For me, this past Winter has proven to be the complete opposite and remains just another fantastic excuse to stay happily cooped up in the studio. 
Personally, this winter has been far too fast and HOT!

The moment I shipped off the last pieces for my most recent show in Florida
at Trudy Labell Fine Art,
I fiercely began preparing for my next ...
 which I am VERY exciting to announce is scheduled for this Summer! 

I'm inviting you to mark your calendars for
JULY 2013 
Solo Exhibition of New Work
at LANOUE FINE ART in Boston.
(reception details to come)


I hope you will join me for what I'm promising to be the best yet!

watch a video from last years Opening Reception... 




In the coming months, I will be posting news, 
photos from the studio and previews of new work.
If you'd like to see more frequent updates, ADD me on FACEBOOK.
(if you choose to "follow" me, you can only see infrequent public posts)




I'd also like to say THANK YOU to all who came out to support 
my January exhibition "Splendid Surfaces" at Trudy Labell Fine Art in Florida
