Pensive, 2014, Jo-Ann Sanborn
acrylic on board, 7"x5"
It's always good to take a little time out for reflection, and better when you can sit by some water to do it! Water is soothing to me, whether it's the sound of a little fountain or the crashing of waves on the shore. Gently moving water calms our minds and our souls, and decisions made while sitting by the water always seem to be the right ones.
What's on my mind? Good friends new and old, a client who had a nice turn of good fortune, upcoming holidays, projects I've taken on, a new home slowly emerging, and as always, my next painting. What fills your mind these days?
The courtyard of the Esplanade will be filled with artists for the first Left Bank Art Show this Sunday, and the studio gallery will be open, with new paintings of all sizes to enjoy, and several new sets of coasters, including some shells. They'd make a nice gift for yourself or someone you're thinking about!
