    I was very excited to see the recent Members show at the at The Rockport Art Association. There was a surprising and delightful eclectic mix of representational and contemporary abstract work.
    Here are a few of my favorites:
    Emily Passman
    Susan Guest Macphail
    Karen Rovner

    I've become more attracted to,and intriqued by less representational work. However, my foundation in the traditional plein air approach to paintng will always prevail.
    NOTE: I'm teaching a two day "Expressive Painting" workhop up there this weekend in this incredible space!
    Can't wait.
    I'll keep you posted.

    Collages to Abstract

    1 month ago - By Nancy Colella Simply Painting

    I'm taking a wonderful abstract class at Concord Art with Nancy Gruskin.
    This week we had a terrific model who sat for three poses.
    We used cut paper as our medium.
    I loved those blue suede boots!
    She had some wonderful outfits!
    We ran out of time for the last one so I just focussed on her sneakers.
    "Painting with Paper" is a great way to break things down into big shapes and force yourself to simplify!
    NOTE:Here is Nancy Gruskin's interpretation.
    I just love her approach and simplicity. It all works on so many levels.

    This painting is a diptych - painted on two separate canvas panels. What looks like two yellow stripes going across the painting is actually gold paint that caught the light brightly. In person, the gold color is softer.
