A Cornfield, some Fireflies and a Starry Sky...

March has been a very busy month. I have curated 3 Exhibits. The Salt Exchange "Farm To Table", Tao Restaurant, Maine Nature " Birds, Sky & Water" and later in the month at The Chocolate Church Art Gallery "Fiddleheads and Springtime Pleasures.
For the "Farm to Table" Exhibit I created a Series, "In and around the Cornfields".

A Cornfield as the Crow Flies 40x30 Acrylic on Canvas

   I was inspired by the thought of  a Crow, who would be swooping towards a Cornfield then up towards a fair weather sky, I was interested in the point of view that would translate onto a canvas.

CornStalk  18x24 Acrylic on Canvas

Cornstalks have many colors in the leaves and the stalks. It was fun to paint them with a Twilight Sky and on a Sunny day.

Fireflies on a Starry Night  48x24  Acrylic, Rice paper mounted on Birchboard

Fireflies are the magic of a warm summer evening. I loved the thought of these blinking beauties on a Star filled Night. Looking up over the tops of the Cornfield and up into the heavens. Life is a wonder.
