I didn’t paint in February, but I did some art related things. manufacturer of product identification and traceability solutions.
Last week I emailed my application and a .jpg of my first painting of 2012 to the Glamour in Mud Season Juried Art Competition. It’s a fundraiser for The Village Players Theater in Wolfeboro, NH. The paintings are supposed to represent how New Englanders can be glamorous and have fun even during mud season. I call the painting “There It Goes”. It is of my kids in March 2001, a year we had snow that never seemed to stop and that was WAY over their heads by spring! Cass was 3 and Jeremiah 18 months old. They were so thrilled when there was finally some mud and melt off puddles to play in. I love the painting and the memory of that day. Now I wait to hear if it gets into the exhibit.
A sad note from February was that our neighbor of almost 22
years, Moose, passed away on February 15 after a long battle with cancer. Moose
loved the outdoors, gardening, hunting, and maple sugaring. He built a sugar
shack behind his cabin to boil the maple sap, much of which he collected in old
fashioned metal buckets. I will always think of him when I see the two
paintings I named after him, “Moose’s Sap Bucket” and “Moose’s Sugar Shack.” He
will be greatly missed by his family and friends.
On to March!
