Kathryn’s Bouquet

The calendar states that it’s officially Spring but here in New England it feels like winter with endless snow storms and freezing temperatures.  Perhaps that’s why I kept finding myself looking at this small 12″ x 16″ painting that has been kicking around my studio for awhile.  It’s a simple piece inspired by a bouquet that a friend had picked from her garden in Wellfleet, MA.  I was also giving it a second look after getting the announcement for a Jane Freilicher exhibit that’s coming up at the Tibor De Nagy Gallery in New York.  Her pieces resonate with me in there simplicity of subjects and painting techniques.

Botanical Garden

Botanical Garden

Botanical Garden was created as a companion to the Octopus’s Garden.  The painting was inspired by both the Marie Selby Botanical Gardens and the Myakka River State Park in Florida.  Warm weather will be here soon…

    Donna, We skipped across the pond for a family vacation in London, Oxford and the Cotswolds and even here in the Cotswolds we awoke to snow on the ground and cold, raw weather. I was so hoping Boston would have finally warmed up! Love your paintings. I bought a set of travel Winsor & Newton paints while I was here in England but still haven’t found the time to use them! Best, Karen

  • Karen-Thanks for your words of encouragement. Say ‘hi’ to my friends at Downton Abbey! FYI Carole Bolsey has an exhibit at the South Shore Art Center in Cohasset until April 7th. It’s worth the trip! Stay safe and enjoy the UK.
