Missing opening night of a talented and popular local artist can have it's advantages. I love going to the openings to support the artist, and experience the excitement in the room. But often there is so much energy in the room, that I find myself missing some really beautiful details.
Stephanie's newest body of work displays both the maturity of an established artist, and the joy in exploring the depth and breadth of a difficult medium. I found myself getting so close to the paintings that my nose almost grazed the surface. There are bumps and etchings, and layers upon layers of yummy wax to explore with your eyes. It is almost impossible to resist caressing the surfaces with my hands. Lovely.
I'm a sporadic blogger. If I haven't posted anything for a while, it probably means that I'm in the studio painting my heart out. Or it may be summer and I'm off sailing with my husband. I always have something to say, but I don't always know how to say it. Please check in often and I may surprise you!
