December Exhibit A Fresh Approach
Through January 11

 

Artists always delight in discovering “a fresh approach”. It expands our visual delight with the world especially when we are travelling. “Afternoon in Lorcula, Croatia” is my first pastel from my recent trip to Croatia” says Laura Hickman. “The whole country and its islands were truly fantastic.  Joyce Condry was also inspired by a recent trip out west. “I have always treated skies as a backdrop for my paintings rather than as the subject. The big skies and ever changing weather patterns created skies that were paintings unto themselves. “Twilight” an  acrylic is the beginning of a new subject to explore.  

Often artists paint a subject many times each time trying a new approach. Lesley McCaskillchose lily pads which is a subject  shehaspainted on location with watercolors. “Lily Pads” an acrylic is a much larger three panel triptych and painted from memory.I wanted to show subtle movement from the breeze and water and the variety of color change in the pads.”  “As a life-long lover of the ocean, I frequently paint the surf and shorebirds with a play of light and shadow” says Dale Sheldon.  “Sea Turtles is a similar subject, but another approach.  The majestic sea turtle is coming out of the rough surf to rest on the beach, with patterns on the sand left by his tracks.“Beauty to Behold” acrylic by Pat Riordan features the local color of our Delaware marshes.

“Fresh flowers from the market or the garden always brighten my day and I love painting them” says Jan Moffatt. “Fresh Flowers” an acrylic explores spontaneity and impasto mixing the paint with looser large brush strokes and thick paint. “It is a fun, freeing and a refreshing change from my landscape paintings which takes a more careful process.”
