Hello from my studio building in downtown Boston! Here’s a photographic glimpse into what’s happening here at 450 Harrison Avenue today.
“Boston Hybrid” (above) joins Boston’s historic Longfellow Bridge to the city’s newer, modern Zakim Bridge. They meet in the middle in an imaginary scene along the Charles River. Why? Let’s rewind to October 2015.
As an artist, it’s fun for me to find new ways of showing the city through my eyes. I have taken a lot of photographs on long walks around town, and around 2009 I began to experiment with painting them.
I would never go so far as to say I find winter in Boston fun. Bracing, yes. Interesting, maybe. Challenging, sometimes. But fun? No.
Winter here has a big upside for me, though…
It would be a huge omission if I didn’t say that my mood’s been inwardly reflective and pensive this week following the news of David Bowie’s death. Like so many people, my first instinct in my processing of this was to listen to the songs that spoke loudest and clearest to me.
Whew! I can’t begin to tell you how happy I am that my online print store is finally up and running.
It’s been a long time coming. Working with HTML and indecipherable instructions — not my favorite task!
Happy new year! I’m starting the new year with my latest recipe for art.
I had a fun time developing this mixed media collage called, simply, The Longfellow.
