BWA was invited by Strolling of the Heifers, Brattleboro’s famous parade honoring Vermont’s agricultural heritage, to create a show of our art inspired by the five farms the Stroll is focussing on this year. The show will be at The Works restaurant on Main St. for the month of June, then it will move to the River Garden Gallery across the street. I’ve visited all five farms and have created two paintings, working on a third , fourth and fifth. I want to have some choice as to which will be in the exhibit. The two paintings below may receive an added component if I can work it out in time – an abstract relief section added to the left or right. I look forward to seeing the work being prepared by the other exhibitors. I’ve had a glimpse of Walter’s tile piece and his wood construction and Kris’s beautiful fabric work featuring all 5 farms: Deer Ridge Farm, Cortland Hill Farm, Rob Family Farm, Bunker Farm and Franklin Farm.

Atmosphere series by slaia

During our long and snowy winter I departed from my usual geometric painting to explore a new approach. The snowy scene is still rather abstract and suggests rather than depicts landscape forms. When I showed this piece to an artist friend recently, her enthusiasm caused me to paint over a very geometric landscape to create a more atmospheric one, creating the second in this new series. The two paintings are shown below.
