Empty nester

I've been framing and shipping off a lot of paintings lately, or so it seems (there are empty corners in my studio again, I hardly know what to make of them). I snapped a few pictures as I went today (look at the kiddos all dressed up in their new clothes!), so I'm sharing. Here are three Sebbies all dressed up and ready to head over to Marine Arts Gallery in Salem, MA: (clockwise, that is, "Duckling Courting", "Sebbie and the Sky Pirate", and "Sebbie and his Fly-Away Imagination"--there are better close-ups on my website, fyi)

And here is one of my favorites (I almost couldn't part with him), all dressed up to the nines and headed to Eisele Gallery of Fine Art in Cincinnati for the Oil Painters of America's Eastern Regional Exhibition: ("Treasure")

Gee, now I'm all teary-eyed; it's rough being a mom.

Art about town

This last weekend saw me visiting my work around town. On Saturday was the opening for the Guild of Boston Artists' Regional Exhibition (the show has been extended until the 28th of August, if you haven't made it yet--it's quite a diverse sample of regional realism). On Sunday, I made it up to Salem with a friend to see the Turner exhibition at the Peabody Essex Museum. Right next door to the museum was Sebbie hanging out in the window of the Marine Arts Gallery, so we had our picture taken together. Then we went to the beach to watch the sun set into an example of Turner's beautiful colors. Here is the photographic evidence: me looking all fancy, and me looking quite ready for the beach.

A reception and a painting

I spent a lovely afternoon at the opening reception for the Guild of Boston Artists' Annual Regional Exhibition (pictures to follow). So there was no painting this afternoon, but I finished up the latest Sebbie the other day, so here he is, it's a favorite:
