SOLD – Private Collection, Saratoga Springs, NY

This painting was sold at my show this month. It captures an early spring sunrise above the marsh behind my house. The marsh is a magical place that gives me constant inspiration. It’s a place I look to for peace and reflection.

Inspired by the full moon rising over the lake a few days ago. Pale as can be, she was barely there yet ever present.

I picked up my paintings from the gallery today. I’m happy to report that 17 works of art have found new homes. The show was an all around success, and I am grateful for the wonderful feedback, support and well wishes. Michelle LaLonde of Mimosa and her team did an excellent job of connecting my work with wonderful people. I am honored.

I spent the evening reading through some of the comments left in the guest book, and got a little teary eyed. These little notes are so special to me. As an artist, I really want others to see the world more beautifully, so I am pleased when that connection is made. Thank you all for for sharing your thoughts with me.

Until next time…

Apple Trees

SOLD – Private Collection in Sacandaga Lake, NY

This painting was inspired by a crop of wild apple trees I discovered close to home. I loved the way the bright red apples seemed to shine against the dark green foliage.

This painting was the demo I completed at the “Meet me at Mimosa” Luncheon yesterday. This was a completely new experience for me (painting while engaging with an audience), but it went a lot better than I had initially thought. The group was very welcoming, and made me very comfortable. It was like having a conversation with 30 close friends. I want to thank the fabulous Michelle LaLonde and her wonderful team for hosting, and connecting me and my work to such passionate art lovers.

The show is up until this Sunday, 7/28. It’s very bitter sweet. I’m sad that it’ll be over soon, but so happy to have met so many wonderful collectors/art lovers and I’ll have a lot less work to bring back to the studio as well. YAY! More space for new work!

I met a few collectors (new and old), had interesting conversation, and lot of laughs! I was so pleased to see many red dots went up throughout the night! I am a lucky girl!

Along the Hudson


24×24 inches, oil on canvas © 2013 Takeyce Walter

This weekend I dropped off a car load of paintings including the one above to Mimosa Gallery for my solo show there this month. It was such a relief and thrill to hand them off. I can’t wait to see the work all together. I am tremendously proud of the paintings being shown in this exhibition. Lots of hard work, long hours, and sleepless nights. It’s certainly all worth it in the end.

Each of these paintings capture moments of inspiration. Moments where I took pause to appreciate the beauty that I am so fortunate to be surrounded by every day.

Here’s an image of the postcard. It features the painting “Summer Shadows” 6×8″ oil.

I’ve been busy painting, and haven’t had a chance to post all the paintings here as yet. For a preview of the works included, please see my FB page album:

If you are interested in any of these paintings, please let me know or contact Michelle LaLonde at Mimosa Gallery, 518-583-1163. I’d love to hear from you too, so please feel free to contact me with any questions or comments!

If you are in the area on Saturday, July 13th, I would love to see you at the opening. I’ll be there from 4 – 7 PM. The exhibition runs from July 3 – 28. For those not available for the opening, I thank you for the well wishes.
