There is a small library in the center of my town that hosts a "Books and Bloom" event every May. Around 30 very clever and talented people chose a book and interpret it with flowers. This year, two of my Garden Club friends and I chose "The Help" by Katherine Stockett. We arranged mostly soft pink and white southern flowers surrounded by Magnolia leaves (representing the "Southern Belles" who hired the "Help") in small white training potty with a lid that I found on line. The toilet sits on a polished silver tray with the polish and the rag, on top of an apron, on top of a damask linen tablecloth.
The event is tonight and the arrangements will be on display from 10 - 2 tomorrow.
I am a full time oil painter living and working the South Shore of Boston. My goal as a painter is to say as much as I can, with as few "well placed" brushstrokes as possible. My paintings are intuitive and spontaneous, meant to engage the viewer in a specific moment in time.
This blog is designed to share a quick glimpse into my process of painting. All paintings are for sale by contacting the artist. firstname.lastname@example.org
