10th Anniversary Art Exhibition

JJ the Beast

Needless to say, in this time of Covid-19, everyone has to try hard to have a positive attitude and keep their spirits up. For me, that means FaceTime with my kids and grandkids, painting, playing golf, working out and staying in touch with good friends. Last week, I neglected to check what Gmail characterizes as Promotions and didn’t see that JJ the Beast had won Special Recognition in Light Space Time Online Gallery’s 10th Anniversary Art Exhibition, which opened online on Saturday and will remain on display until October 2nd. The gallery received 2,129 entries from 34 different countries as well as from 41 states and the District of Columbia.

I began entering art competitions at lightspacetime.art over three years ago, in April 2017, and have received Special Merit and Special Recognition for 28 of my paintings to date. Proud to be in such good company, I’m especially happy to have JJ the Beast applauded before this painting of him leaves for Wisconsin this fall with our granddaughter Maddie—as a reminder of home and everything she loves.

Be Still My Heart

As any grandparent will tell you, grandchildren are life’s greatest gift, one of the few  experiences in which the reality exceeds your expectations.  I have been blessed with four beautiful granddaughters, Lasa Grey being the newest.

Completely besotted with all of my girls, I’ve painted them each several times over the years.  My favorite paintings of Izzy and Maddie show them looking at their own reflections in an old mirror at a playground in Nantucket, when Izzy was four and Maddie two. 

The portrait of Cassie in sunglasses at the beach is a reminder that she’s had attitude from the get go.
