Some of my work will be shown at Catamount Arts in St Johnsbury VT as part of the Second Tuesday group show. Second Tuesday is an art discussion group that has been meeting for more than twenty years. Paintings from my series "Breaking Through" and "Atlantic Beaches" will be on view.
Breaking through, is the first group of little paintings that I have done that are purely abstract. they seem to be about breaking through the cobwebs to some inner, yet hard to reach passion. I think I will pursue this series and make some bigger ones.
Atlantic beaches is about dead things on the beach. Dead jellyfish. Broken shells. Bits of seaweed. As part of my larger "Small Things" series (I'm up to about 135) these are a celebration of and homage to tiny things under our feet or right in front of our faces that all too often go unnoticed.
