Mystical #Myth #Monoprint #Horses

These were so much fun for me to do! The two pieces are a continuation of the mystical creatures series I started last year.  It started with a seadragon monoprint and then a mystical seahorse monoprint. Now a unicorn and a winged horse. I still want to paint a griffin, but I’ve also thought about adding the Sphinx, Cerberus, and a hydra to the collection. So many choices!

 

Flaming Fire Red Rose #Garden #Paintings

This is a set that is best viewed in person. Photos just don’t do them justice. It was inspired by footage of the wildfires in California this year, specifically a garden with roses on fire. Not something I’d want to happen to anyone, but it was a great inspiration for these paintings. I began with a textured surface and then a metallic base background in silver. Then I used acrylic and ink, in red, yellow, and orange layers, to build the roses and flames.

#ArtDeco Inspired #Geometric #Acrylic #Painting

I’ve pointed out before that Stan and I love the look and feel of the Art Deco period. We collect many things from the period and it influences many things about our house and the furnishings. One day I got it into my head that I wanted to create an Art Deco inspired piece for our family room. I knew I wanted it to be geometric, to be somewhat reflective, and I knew I also wanted to use acrylic skins for parts of it. After working on it for over a year off and on it is finally done. I’m calling this painting “Building Veiled Geometry.” Continue reading “#ArtDeco Inspired #Geometric #Acrylic #Painting”

April Opening Reception- Omer T. Lassonde: New Hampshire Modernist

Omer T. Lassonde: New Hampshire Modernist

Opening Reception  April5, 5-8PM



In 1947 journalist Ben Bradlee declared Omer T. Lassonde (1903-1980) one of”American’s Great Painters” — the person who had “done more than any man living to put New Hampshire on the map artistically.” Lassonde “never settled into one artistic school” he noted, “but experimented successfully with expressionism, realism, cubism, and abstractionism.” Born in Concord, NH of French-Canadian stock, Lassonde had solid academic training, early gallery success, administered the WPA Arts Program in New Hampshire during the Great Depression, and was a key figure in founding the New Hampshire Art Association in 1940. An ability to paint in any style, a firm love of color, and modernist sensibility helped make him a prominent figure in New England art.
