Marblehead is known for it's sailing community, and in the summer time the yacht clubs draw tourists from all over the world. It is also known for being the birth place for the American Navy, and home to the painting, "Spirit of '76". I recommend visiting the links above, all related to the wonderful New England history right next door to where I live.
"Howling at the Moon" is one of my newest (and favorite) watercolor paintings that has not been shown anywhere as of yet. I hope it is accepted into the painting exhibit.
"Winter Wonderland" won an award in the Lynn Arts photo show this past winter. Photography has become an integral part of my encaustic painting development.
"Sitting" is another one of my new pastel drawings, I have never tried to enter the drawing venue of this festival before.
Lastly, my large version of "Wisteria" has not been shown yet. "Gray Day at the Beach" has only been shown once before. I was a judge for the mixed media exhibit last year and I am hoping that both pieces are accepted.
It really is such a change for me to be involved in so many different art mediums. I can still remember when I was only sharing watercolor paintings; it sure is nice to see personal change and growth.
