An Original Gift

Concord Art Association will have two of my paintings in their Holiday Originals Exhibit & Sale. This still life as well as "Red Bars" (see blog entry from March 22, 2010) are both available for under $100.00.

This time of year lots of local groups and galleries make smaller scale pieces available for gift giving. I encourage you to get out to enjoy the shows and take the leap to buy a truly original gift for someone special.

Holiday Originals runs December 2nd through the 21st
open house December 5th 2-4 p.m.
Concord Art Association, 37 Lexington, Rd, Concord, MA

So November

Some things are just so very November.
In my part of the world, things can be very stark, grey, raw with increasing hours of darkness that catch you off guard. Nevertheless, the subdued tones and low, raking light is really beautiful, even if in a mournful way.

This is a painting of a rookery (where great blue heron nest) that I pass frequently. It is always haunting and stark, but even more so this time of year.

The wetlands in my area of Central Massachusetts get wildly colorful in the Fall. On bright, clear October days I just have to drink in all in before the expanse of grey that comes in November.
