|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!
