2012 has come and gone with a flurry of new art activity. A new gallery is showing my work and I have had a great time working with friends to create group shows in various venues about town. New ventures in 2013 will include solo exhibitions at the Universalist Unitarian Church of Falmouth and an August show at the Masur Gallery at FCTV. I will continue to show works at Cape Gallery Framer in Falmouth and at SRD Danton Studios in South Dennis.
I also continue to offer oil painting classes at the Falmouth Art Center. Doing demonstration paintings for my students has opened up some new ways of thinking and the desire to branch out into larger, more stripped down versions of landscapes. The small works done for the class left me feeling as though my world had been too scaled down and safe. So the goal this winter is to work on pieces 20″ x 30″ or larger and see where this takes me. It is good for artists to mix it up and push into unfamiliar territory. Drama and bold gesture are possible in a larger format so stay tuned and I will post more in a month or two.
