Winter Light: Robin’s Abstract Landscapes at the UU Church through January 2023

What a wonderful and celebratory way to start the new year, with an inspiring display of artworks expressing my love for nature. This exhibit includes twenty abstract landscapes and views of the natural world in painting, printmaking, and drawing. Working from memory has allowed me creative freedom, and I have taken many liberties in these artworks. I hope you sense their playfulness and invention using my various approaches to collage, layering, and composition. Some of the artwork on display is from my 2016 Artist Residency at Acadia National Park. You can visit my Acadia gallery here: And here is a link to learn more about Brunswick’s UU congregation. My thanks to Debbie Zorach and the Exhibition Committee members for inviting me to exhibit there.

L-R, Scott Brooks, Susan Laurie Brooks, our mom Shay, me, and Jonathan Brooks, the four oldest of the five Brooks Children, December 2022

Many of you know that I organized a celebration for my mom who turned 88 on December 20th. Here I am with my siblings that were able to attend the gathering and dinner party for our marvelous mother.

Best wishes for 2023–health, peace, and equanimity.

My best wishes to you and your families. May you find time for what is really important and have the courage to let go of what you don’t need. Equanimity is all about “riding the waves” of our lives so we can maintain our inner calm despite what challenges arise. I will take a lesson from my mother and strive to stay young at heart!

Love, Robin
