I have received many encouraging words about the installation. For me it was a truly collaborative process where people around me helped bring to life the picture in my head. I am thankful. We’ll see what the future holds in terms of future installations. Meanwhile, I do hope if you’re in the area you have a chance to walk beneath these branches.

One of the great pleasures of the past year has been joining the Steering Committee of the Riverside Arts Group and working alongside creative people like Jeffrey Nowlin, a painter, sculptor and mixed media artist. He is curating a July exhibit at the Riverside Gallery. The theme will be Flora+Fauna.

Nowlin says, “the show is a celebration not only of the diversity and beauty of our natural world, but the diversity of visual aesthetics. All of the artists that I have on the roster will be contributing widely differing works. I think this will be a great mix.”

Tentative date for the reception is Sunday August 7th, 3:00-5:00 PM. Location will be the Riverside Gallery located in the Cambridge Community Center. Stay tuned for further details! Meanwhile here’s a sneak peek at the work of several participating artists including Nowlin whose work you can also view at http://jeffreynowlin.weebly.com/

Kaleidoscopic Tree

Well, as gray skies gave way to rain, I figured it was okay to pull out pictures and papers and glue once again to play with colors layered on the page.

Moonstruck

The moon is still significant, as are boats sailing the blue seas.

The Race

These sails were inspired by some Japanese block prints I viewed online.

There’s no comparison to nature’s beauty but I did have fun making these paper flowers quickly one night using a combination of old photos, magazine scraps, construction paper and a black marker on white paper.  I’ll likely turn them into fun postcards that can be sent to brighten someone’s mail box.  😉
