Autumn Fields

Topics: Abstract Expressionism, art therapy

It's been a while since I've posted anything up here. I've been busy painting, too busy to take photos and post them here. There will be more photos in the next few days. This is a mixed media painting - the colors and depth reminded me of autumn fields. I'm pretty focused on abstract expressionism right now, and find it to be very catharic and healing.

This weekend I'm going to be at a new business in Northampton - "Valley Hands: Watch Art Develop Gallery" to do some painting. This unique new venue, housed in a storefront, combines a gallery with a space for artists to work in full view of the public. The idea is to increase exposure to the arts, and give artists a place to display their work on a rotating basis. They are open on weekends - Friday 2-8 p.m. and Saturday/Sunday 12-5 p.m. It's a bit intimidating to put myself out there quite so publicly, but I'm looking forward to it. I'll be showing some of my finished work, and working on a few pieces.
