At the Barn Gallery, Ogunquit, Maine

My colored pencil still life, Heirloom Tomatoes and Chard, has been juried into the Barn Gallery's annual Open, Regional, Juried Exhibition. It's exciting to be a part of this show, and I must admit that sometimes I forget how fortunate I am to live so close to an area that has such an active and dynamic arts community... especially in the summer!

Barn Gallery
On the corner of Shore Road and Bourne Lane
Ogunquit, Maine

Suddenly I feel like eating a salad!:-) A charming piece, love the pinky/wine colour in the mat, vase and tomatoes. And of course I am partial to chard!
Congratulations on being juried into the exhibition. A barn gallery, humm...I am picturing a delightful old post and beam barn turned into a gallery. Sounds delightful anyway.
Hope your garden is coming along well this summer!

Hi Teresa! Thanks... I remember that you liked this one when it was first completed.
My actual chard in the garden right now is not looking this good. I've got new wild critters out there. Last year was fine without a fence, but now it's a free-for-all!
Independence day weekend will be all about fence building.

Very beautiful. I love the color of the leaves and you could practically feel the texture. Congrats on your exhibition.

Liz P said...

Thank you! This is a very textural one, isn't it? I really liked how the green glazed, slightly dimensional trees on the Roseville pottery related to the chard leaves.

Liz P said...

Thanks Kendra! ... And the tomatoes tasted just as good as they looked :~)
