Sea and Sky, March 2020 – April 2020
Anne Hunter Galleries, 25 Central Square, Seaside, FL
“Sea and Sky” is a collection of 20 to 30 paintings I am creating this year (2019) to exhibit next spring at Anne Hunter Galleries in Seaside, Florida. It is a series inspired by the Gulf of Mexico and surrounding estuaries near my home in Northwest Florida, capturing what I think are universal qualities of the sea and the sky. When I begin a series, I never know where it will take me. What starts out as pictorial realism may grow into non-representational abstraction — what will seem to me to be a logical progression will most certainly represent a leap in creativity when I look back on the year. I’m excited to have it on the calendar for next March and April!! Below are the first paintings of the series.
