Exhibit Announcement!

Newest news:

Five of my little paintings will be on display at the Precious exhibit at the Soo Rye Art Gallery in Rye, NH!

Precious opens on November 13th (reception from 5-7pm) and goes right into January 21st of next year! (There is more information about the gallery in the sidebar.)

This is pretty cool for me because Rye is the special place I went every summer with my family as a kid. My grandparents bought our beach cottage in the 1950’s, so my dad had been going there since he was 10!  We were a short walk to the “sandy beach” and across the street from “the rocks”.

It was in Rye that I did my first wave watching and fell head over heels for the ocean and everything in it - animal, vegetable or mineral. I loved to swim in it, observe its movements, enjoy the ever changing colors and listen to its interaction with the shore. I attempted my first landscape there and have been trying to draw the darned place since I was a little kid.

I am glad to have some pieces depicting the beaches in Rye for the show, including the one at the top of the post. I’ll share more paintings from the exhibit in the coming weeks!

Oh Hannah ... your painting is absolutely beautiful. That area of the country is so lovely and you have captured it to a "t". You can almost hear the ocean.

Meg - Thanks for your kind words about my painting! I do live in a beautiful place and that does help the artwork!
