I am so excited for daylight savings this weekend! Finally, more sunshine☀️. For the past two months I’ve been cooping myself up in my art room working away on paintings for an upcoming new gallery/museum in downtown Wilmington, NC. Opening is in May.
Expo 216 Ocean Plastic (216 N. Front St. Wilmington, NC 28401)
The theme of plastics in the ocean and the harm it does to animals goes perfectly with the paintings I love to create. I’m working on a series of miniature paintings of the ocean floor, with pieces of plastics harvested from the ocean (courtesy of Bonnie Monteleone with Plastic Ocean Project) and other plastics and recycled materials.
Also coming out on April 1st, 2016. The Mystical Magical Amazing Fantastical Gardens of Airlie book will be here for purchase. This will be a limited, numbered and signed, hardcover edition with the softcover soon to follow. My lovely cousin Anne Russell asked me to do the art for this book back in December of 2014. It took me all of 2015 to complete the project, 15 paintings in all. We are very excited that it is finally finished and ready just in time for spring.
