Talking About Change and Impossible Clouds on a Sunny Fall Day
Updated: Nov 2
The Fall season in the northern hemisphere is finally at peak time and as I write this, I can enjoy the golden yellow leaves of the linden tree in my backyard against the beautiful blue sky.
Fall is thought of as the time for change, transition, and preservation; essential and inevitable aspects of life. Change brings uncertainty but also carries the possibility of a better outcome, especially in times of despair and hopelessness.
I feel the influence of Fall. It fosters introspection which gives birth to growth. In my studio, earlier paintings transition into new ones, and new paintings make their way into new exhibits and exciting projects I am planning, and that I will tell you more about in future blog posts.
· Today I want to invite you to the 2023 Brickbottom Open Studios Member Show, currently on view at the Brickbottom Gallery until Nov 19th, where my painting, The Impossible Cloud, is featured.
· Related to this show, I will be participating at the Brickbottom and Joy Street’s Open Studios event, Sat & Sun November 18th & 19th, 12-5 PM. I will be at 1 Fitchburg Street, 1st floor, Somerville MA, during this exciting weekend.
And lastly, if you are curious, while executing The Impossible Cloud on a repurposed canvas I wondered if an apocalyptic sky could be dramatic and stunning, while I implored that we never lose the natural light blue one that on a calmer sunny day like today is majestic.
