SOLD – Private Collection

I’ve been busy preparing for my summer shows! In addition to my solo exhibit in July at Mimosa Gallery, I have two other group shows coming up in June – more details about those later. It’s all very exciting and I’ve been doing a great job carving out time to work on new pieces – even if it means staying up to the wee hours. All this excitement comes with lots of energy and motivation.

I came across this quote from Edward Seago on Marc Hanson’s Facebook page:

“Often, in my mind, I have pictured a great blank canvas, and in my imagination I have seen it transformed into the masterpiece of my dreams. Memory has conjured the subject and imagination has fashioned it. How I wish I could show you one of those pictures. They are very broad in treatment and there is no detail to distract the eye; yet the tiniest incident is there if you look- the glint of a dragonfly’s wing over the water, and the blue-green of the hedge-sparrow’s eggs in the smooth hollow of the nest. The colours cannot be found in tubes- they are taken from the fields and flowers, and are mixed with light and air.” – Edward Seago

That pretty much sums up how I’ve always felt about the natural world. I have all this beautiful imagery bopping around the brain, and I am eager to share it with you all.

Until next time…
