CATCHING UP

You might have noticed, I haven’t been posting my regular weekly news. It’s because of all of the snow! When we get hit with a big nor’easter I easily lose a half day or more just to shovel us out. We’ve had two big storms in the past 5 days. It takes two of us to move all this white stuff out of the way.  Marcus runs around with the snow blower, moving the bulk of it . I use the old fashioned shovel. It doesn’t bother me, I get a nice dose of fresh air!  Today it was gorgeous outdoors after the heavy snow we got last night.  Never mind a transformer blowing up in the middle of the night and knocking out all our power to add to the excitement !   Hey, it’s February in Maine, this is the norm!

NEW DESIGN CLASS NEXT WEEK

CABIN FEVER!!!!  If you have cabin fever this is perfect for you !  I have one spot in my new class that starts next week on Tuesday February 21st.  It’s a 6 week class. We meet at my studio in North Berwick. Time: 10 -1. Fee $220
If you have experience with oil, acrylic, watercolor or gouache you are welcome to join us. If you want to join us please contact me here.

Painting Big Surf & Wild Waves


Fresh off the easel. My newest “Big Surf” 5×7, acrylic $300 unframed. Available for a short time only. Purchase here. Photo: Mary Byrom

MAKING WAVES

It was a great week in the studio! I’m in the thick of finishing paintings for my new artist-in-residence exhibit at the Beachmere Inn in their new freshly painted cafe. And of course, for my lovely collectors and galleries! Lots of new paintings are being released from the studio.
This week I’m working in the in acrylics. I love how fast and fluid they are. Sometimes acrylics suit my mood and currently I want to paint fast. All that great energy goes right into the painting.  Of course it has to do with being out in a nor’easter last week. There is nothing like the power of the sea in a storm!
I’m really loving the big surf and waves. That nor’easter we had last week has embedded  waves and surf into my mind.  I see waves in my mind’s eye all the time!

I will be doing a wave demo live on Facebook and Instagram! Stay tuned ! Follow me on my  Facebook and Instagram accounts so you can watch.

I will also be hosting a series of live demos and artist talks on Instagram. If you would like to see these please follow me on Instagram to view them. I will post times when I will be doing the live demos in my posts on my page on Instagram.

I love doing these demos and I think Marcus (my hubby) has found a niche that is a perfect fit for him ! As soon as we go live he thinks he has his own TV comedy show. Everyone was laughing . It was so much fun!

Cold or Cozy, Warming up with Gold


The first in my new gold marsh series. The gold is very subtle it peeks through and glows in bits here and there. It isn’t easy to see the gold reflections in a photograph.  Diptych Marsh Clouds 1, 2.5x 6 oil on gold. $175. Limited Edition Prints $35  Available. Photo: Mary Byrom

COLD DAYS & COZY SPOTS
Winter arrived sometime in the past few weeks. Cold winter temperatures are here along with the pure clean arctic air that swoops down every now and then from the North Pole. I love the smell of this air. It’s so clean and fresh. The temperatures have dropped below zero and my office in this big old house with its drafty windows feels chilly.  Who cares how cold it is? My new studio is so toasty that it is a delight to spend any time in there! This week I’m doing inventory on paintings that are newly finished, waiting to be finished and on my to-do list. I’m finishing several paintings that have been waiting for my attention since they were started on location during the summer. I’m looking at my plein air studies for a new series that I’m starting and I just completed another haiku landscape series.

Marsh Clouds 2 2.5×3  oil on gold . $85  A storm clearing out over the marsh. Photo: Mary Byrom

GO FOR THE GOLD
The new Marsh series is a bit different for those of you familiar with my recent work. They are painted on gold. A number of years ago when I was primarily an abstract studio artist I painted on gold. I was organizing my studio this fall and saw a few canvases with gold on them. I love gold and the warmth it reflects. It glows in such a beautiful way. For these uncertain, tumultuous times I thought it was perfect to dish a big dose of warmth out into the world. So I picked up the phone, called my supplier and had some new gold leaf sent to me. My new haiku Marsh series is painted on gold. In the genre of religious paintings, gold symbolizes eternity. I’m getting flashes of 14th and 15th century religious paintings. If I can fit it in, I’m thinking a trip to Florence and Rome is in order to view some of those wonderful paintings. It might be just the perfect thing to see the timeless masterpieces that reside there.

A NEW YEAR & THE GIFT OF WINTER


This is another new larger piece in my “rough seas” series I just completed this week.  “Deliverance” 4×9, Acrylic Available. Photo: Mary Byrom

HAPPY NEW YEAR !

Here’s wishing all of you a very Happy New Year with the best of health and all good things for 2017!

LONG NIGHTS & SHORT DAYS

I have to say at this time of the year with such long nights, I notice I like to sleep more. I feel great after a long winter’s night ! But the other hand the short days don’t make me want to stay indoors next to a blazing fire. Instead, I get the urge to get outdoors and soak in the peace and quiet. I love the solitude of winter. I love the empty streets and deep quiet that settles in after a short day. I also spend more time sitting outside breathing in the pure, clean, cold air and watching the bright sharp stars twinkle in the sky over head.

THERE IS NOTHING LIKE WATCHING A SPECTACULAR SUNSET

Watching the sunset behind Mount Agamenticus from Lords Point in Kennebunk, Maine a couple of days ago was stunningly gorgeous. It was quiet and still with barely a breeze off the water. The houses were mostly dark. There was no traffic. And the western sky was a deep vivid smear of red, orange, gold and green. As we lingered gazing at the southern coast as it curved away from us, the lights in the towns along the water came on and twinkled in random clusters.  All the light house beacons could all be seen in a long line as we looked down the coast. It was breathtakingly beautiful.


The sun went into clouds as it sank to the horizon. The snow was reflecting the blueish color of the sky from directly overhead. The neighbors’ houses the next street over were all silhouetted by the burning sunset colors. Sunset. 5×7. Acrylic. Available. Photo: Mary Byrom

MY PROMISE TO MYSELF
I am painting the dusk and evening scenes that I promised myself I would do on a daily basis. With the holidays almost over and the new year starting that will be easier to do. Even in the midst of all the holiday flurry I did manage to paint a few plein air pieces in my neighborhood this week. Now I have all my winter painting clothing and gear ready to go so I’m looking forward to many more evenings painting outdoors in the gathering dusk.

Winter Solstice, Winter Light


This is a new piece in my “rough seas” series.  I changed the palette for this series and this one is larger than my haiku series. I wanted to create a few bigger ones to see if I liked them as much as the small ones. This series is all about the energy and power of the ocean with a front row view of the crashing waves. Sweeping In,  4×9, Acrylic Available. Photo: Mary Byrom

HAPPY HOLIDAYS , MERRY CHRISTMAS & HAPPY NEW YEAR !

Happy holidays everyone! Whew, the end of the year holiday season is upon us – where did last year go? It feels like every year just keeps picking up speed and zipping right by! I did manage to slow it down in a few spots last year and take advantage of some uninterrupted plein air painting time, so that was good thing. I’m going to be scheduling in quiet painting time as a part of my winter practice. I will paint outside for 100 days with no time limit.  Some days it might be for 20 min and others it will be a few hours. From my experience I know that by just aiming at a target, I will hit more often than not.

With that in mind, this week after a busy day finishing paintings from this summer, I placed some small panels on my easel and quickly painted two views from my studio as evening was moving in.  I really like that it is getting dark so early. I like painting dusk and all the stages of evening. It is one of my favorite times to paint. I prefer it over a sunny day. It is the mood that I like. If I could paint exactly what I wanted to all the time it would be the afternoon and evening hours. There is a certain feeling to that time of day that is perfect for me. It feels like history. Mornings feel like the future to me.  Anything is possible. Afternoons and later feel like remembrance. And there is a mood to memory that is less distinct, more misty than clear morning light. Ultimately, mood is what is important to me when I paint.


The sun was below the horizon and the sky was a pale green color. The snow was reflecting the color of the sky from directly overhead – a deep evening blue. The houses and out buildings across the field were still visible and the lights were appearing in the houses. Across the Field. 5×7. Acrylic. Available. Photo: Mary Byrom

By the time I finished the first painting the sky was getting really dark and I couldn’t see the shapes of the houses across the way through the thicket of trees. I could see the distant tree line and the snow filled field behind my house and a few lights here and there. I really liked the mysterious feeling of the lights and the pathways of snow through the grass and bushes to the edge of the trees.

The Pine Kill in Early Winter


This is a design sketch of the Pine Kill where it flows past my friend’s house in the foothills of the Catskill Mountains in New York. This area is old Dutch country so the rivers are all called “Kill” (a Dutch word) instead of river. It was shortly before sunset when I set up to paint. I was in a river valley with mountains all around me so I was running out of light fast. I decided to use water colors and do two different views of the river. This is a sketch I made in acrylics based on my plein air watercolor. I wanted to isolate and simplify the deign stem in the composition. Photo: Mary Byrom

We took a quick trip to the Catskill region of New York last week. It was one of those trips that happened at the last minute. The weather looked fine, no snow storms were predicted and we had a few days open in our busy holiday schedule. On Monday we emailed our friends to see if they were home.  With a quick confirmation from them the coast was clear, so we packed the car and headed south west.

When we left Maine the sun was breaking through clouds here along the coast.  As we drove across Massachusetts the clouds became thicker. By the time we entered the mountains in western Connecticut it was foggy and raining heavily. The rain eventually stopped over night but the clouds hung around for the next three days with bits of sunshine poking through every now and then.  It felt like the mountains were holding on to the clouds.

I’ve been painting on the coast for most of the past year. I had so many commitments here that there hasn’t been time for painting trips inland !  I was hoping to paint in the Berkshires and farther up the coast of Maine in the fall but I just didn’t have enough free days for a trip.

It was great to see what late fall/early winter  looked like in the Berkshires, along the Hudson and in the Catskills. The colors and the light there are so different from what we see here on the coast. The Atlantic Ocean to the east of us has a big impact on the way colors and light look here in coastal Maine.
For the duration of our short trip the skies over the mountains in NY state were filled with dramatic clouds. The hillsides and mountains are covered with hard woods and there are very few pine trees.   At this time of year with the leaves off the trees there are many subtle grays and moody colors that catch the light and change tone as the sun moves. I was struck by the pink, burgundy colors of the bare branches at certain times of day.

Winter Arrives with Snow !


Now that the snow is covering the ground I look at this picture and think – this is practically summer – even though it was October! Here I am painting in my last plein air competition of the summer/fall season in Essex, MA.  This is a note and reminder to myself for all plein air events I’m in next year. Relax and have fun! The secret to good paintings is to not to get too invested in the outcome, just immerse yourself in the scene and enjoy the process ! Photo : Marcus Gale

Fresh Snow, 5×7 Acrylic  Photo: Mary Byrom

After teaching class yesterday I promised myself I would get out to paint the new fresh snow. I packed up my car to head down to the river across from my house. Then my car wouldn’t start! Big surprise!  It was getting dark and I didn’t have time to futz around so I decided no problem, just paint what I see around my house. The snow and trees in the field out back were perfect. I just moved them a bit to make the design look better !


After Sunset, 5×7 Acrylic Photo: Mary Byrom

This second painting I painted quickly after the sun fell into the clouds near the horizon. The view is across the fields toward the center of the village. I had a tiny slice of the view through my neighbors back yards. I painted fast as it got dark. I finished as it was getting dark. I was a happy camper!
