Auction Closed. Sold via Buy Now $800. Next Auction Monday, July 30.
How do we measure time? Usually in a horizontal, matter of fact way called length.
Example: “I worked on this painting in Sissy’s garden for three hours on Saturday, then another four in my studio yesterday. This painting took me seven hours to complete.”
With art however, time becomes vertical. Duration doesn’t matter much, while direction does. An optimal experience is measured in height.
Example: “Time stands still as a new painting comes to life. Butterflies dance in the air, along with my brush. Bees buzz and birds chirp in happy harmony. The glorious colors of nature sparkle like jewels in the summer sun, rewarding us all.”
Medium: Oil on panel
And the Winners Are…
As a way to say thanks for your tremendous support, I draw two random free print winners each month. Congratulations to our winners for July!
Our first winner is Kate Langworthy, of Pueblo, Colorado. Kate chose “Middlebury Snow Bowl“, and had this to say…
“Wow! I never win stuff, and this is the best gift. You have a real eye for the life of each place you paint and I like the flow of your pieces. There were so many scenes I could have chosen as a native Vermonter, but the one with very fond memories is Middlebury Snow Bowl. So many days risking life and limb (lol) before the days of modern ski equipment, when it was still cheap to ski. For me Vermont is home. It is the place of my ancestors and lives in my soul. Maple sugar, Cheddar cheese with apple pie, fiddleheads, small farms, Lake Champlain, Huntington Gorge, Bread and Puppet theatre, contra-dances, First Night, Town Meeting day are only a few of the things that make Vermont special to me. Thanks for letting us share in your love for Vermont.”
Our second winner is Valerie Triolo, of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Valerie chose “Town Band“, and had this to say…
