Last night was the second Friday ARTWALK in Brunswick when artists open their studios to the public and galleries are open from 5 to 8 pm. I displayed my work in oils, acrylic and collage from February through the summer. I tacked my series of studies from the Androscoggin River looking out the studio windows. These images depict the river from late winter through summer. I also had my summer flower paintings on display. Some visitors commented on the color in the still life images and many responded positively to my work in landscape collage.
I had about thirty visitors to the studio over the course of the evening. They looked around at the work, snacked on the goodies I provided, and exclaimed over the roiling murky Androscoggin. We’d had torrential rains that finally eased up in late afternoon and the river was flowing a murky brown, furious torrent. Many visitors were mesmerized by the river view. I was visited by ARTWALK man, a very cool young superhero donning his mask and cape. Regretfully, I left my camera at home.
