This week I have completed the last (but not least) of my gallery agreements and have joined COCO VIVO Gallery ( http://www.coastandcottage.com/ ). COCO VIVO is located in two great art enriched locations, Charleston South Carolina and locally in the heart of Boothbay Maine. A fair share of the artists represented by the gallery are local painters that I see and paint with on a weekly basis with the Plein Air Painters of Maine.
With the other gallery location being in SC I will get to travel down south a bit to absorb a little of the local life and paint what strikes me, I am very excited to be able to do this and to join what seems like a very hard working succesful team.
This piece (20x16") was painted the day of "Finnegans" accident (see last post) and to me this large garage/barn with the driveway going to it instead of the house behind it, represents what life in Maine is. Functional, work first, with a simple beauty if we just take the time to look at it, thanks for looking.
