Last night I went to the opening of the Abstract Artists Group of New England at the Newburyport Art Association.  There are some incredibly good paintings on exhibit, but for me the highlight was the vibrant fiber art of  Madalene Axford Murphy of Amesbury MA, a recent implant from PA. She’s a member of our “We Are Six” pod, a small private group of local textile artists who meet to critique and share our art.  Her art is a great mix of color, texture and technique in some lively compositions!

I didn’t get the titles because the place was teaming with people – a fabulous turnout.  This is the week of “Riverfest” in Newburyport so the streets were swarming with people, but I still easily found a parking spot!  The exhibit “D’illusions” will continue through September 6th.

The natural world is phenomenal and so much of the man-made world - our architecture, our cities - are stunning accomplishments. They exist hand in hand in both beautiful expressions and sometimes disastrous manifestations. Our entire existence with the natural and the invented is intertwined – each dependent on the other, even as my art evolves, each breathing in the wake of the other. Surface design is one aspect of the process that I love. I thoroughly enjoy the play with color, value and construct, particularly the improvisation which starts with one thing, an idea, a glimpse of a vision, perhaps something that captures my eye for a moment in time and it grows organically. I become focused on whatever piece I'm working on and follow my muse to find my way.
