MANCHESTER, NH – Since this horrible pandemic shuttered people back in March I’ve been painting. The world had become full of anxiety and fear and my first instinct was to paint those stressed-out emotions on canvas. In my mind, in the news, in the world out there everything seemed bleak, heavy, dark. But it turned out what I needed to paint was escape. I wanted bright color and energetic light and joyous movement and something alive.
Some of these paintings from this year are now on exhibit in downtown Manchester, at 814 Elm St. I guess they are floral-themed though no actual flower species is directly reproduced. I see them as garden paintings or landscapes or space-scapes but ultimately escapes. I hope you get a chance to view them, the building is open Mon.-Fri. from 7 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.
This exhibit will run at least through October 2020. Alongside the Pandemic Posies is “WAVES” an eight-foot painting produced at the beginning of 2020.
I will be there often myself and if you want to ask about the work in person contact me for a masked and socially distant appointment. 603-682-0797.
