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: https://robinbrooksart.com/artist-in-residency-at-acadia/ And here is a link to learn more about Brunswick’s UU congregation. https://www.uubrunswick.org/ My thanks to Debbie Zorach and the Exhibition Committee members for inviting me to exhibit there.
Here is my List of Works for the UU show in a Word document. Selected artworks are available to order as archival digital prints.
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!
How fun to see this site!
Also, long ago (college) I also started thinking about life as “riding the waves” or even, “the wave” as it’s sometimes the up, sometimes the down, sometimes the trough, sometimes the crest.
Thanks for all your creative work.
P.S. Your mom is one year, minus ten days, older than mine. How blessed we are to still have moms on earth!
Thanks, Charlotte! You and I are blessed in more ways than one. I’m happy to have met your lovely mom back in the days of “Art Downtown and All Around.”
What an absolutely great photo. . . one you all will treasure!!!!!!!! And congrats on your new exhibit!
