Polo and I have been working on an exciting new project for the Zullo Gallery in Medfield MA. The gallery director received a grant to put on an augmented reality art show this summer and we were invited to participate along with 9 other artists. It has been a huge learning curve and a lot of work as we explored how to create using this brand new medium.

In a follow up post, I will share how our pieces turned out, but if you are in the area, please take a day to explore the art for yourself.

New large beach landscape

Nestled In The Dunes

24" x 24"

Oil with palette knives on canvas

The inspiration for this painting was a winter walk we took while in Plymouth, Massachusetts. There is a beautiful beach called Long Beach that is easier to access and park in the winter than in the summer due to the crowds and parking restrictions. I loved the hit of sun that was hitting on the edge of the dunes and how it lit up the grasses. So pretty.

Spring is coming, I can feel it. Recently we've had a long stretch of really gray days, so I was looking for something whimsical to paint to try to lift my spirits.
