My Paper Houses series, along with two larger watercolors are hanging at Ben’s Burritos in downtown Lewiston, ME. This evening is Art Walk Lewiston-Auburn and the work will hang through the middle of the 3rd week in August.
I am thrilled to have this space to show in. This local business is owned and run by friendly people, and serves delicious and fresh homemade food. And the space is wonderful, with the high, painted tin ceilings.
If you live in central/southern Maine check it out!
This is a recent series of work that I completed. Very different than my usual work, in that there is no human present. These pieces happened very quickly, and I created them intuitively, without thinking too much. I started by painting freely with watercolor and then went over the pieces with chalk pastel. The spheres, houses, and leaves were recurring motifs and the emotions expressed surrounded my thoughts of what it means to be at home, both figuratively and literally.
These 10 works are currently hanging up at The Hive Artisan Co-op in Lewiston, ME, where they will remain until the end of May.
