Historic Homes of Hudson
In the lobby of Phipps Center for the Arts is an exhibit of some of the beautiful historic homes of Hudson, Wisconsin from June 15-July 29, 2018. A group of six other artists and I, who regularly paint and critique each other's work each Thursday morning in an art studio there, challenged ourselves to paint one of the historic houses in three different seasons in 2017. I chose 719 Fifth Street. This is my fall painting of that home.
This painting won an honorable mention award at the Northstar Watermedia Society Members' show at White Bear U.U. Church on May 10th with judge, Tara Sweeney. Among other things, she said it had a feeling of melancholy, an Edward Hopper quality. Not exactly what I was going for, but it's interesting how other perceive your work!
Accepted into the National Juried Northstar Watermedia Exhibition
This painting was invited into the Northstar Watermedia National Juried Exhibition held at White Bear Center for the Arts Sept 10-Nov 18, 2018.
It is part of my butterfly series that were included in my solo exhibition "Connections" held at White Bear U.U. Church May 20-June 24, 2018. In the abstracted butterfly paintings I honor butterflies and use them as a metaphor for all endangered species.
