The Marblehead Arts Association Summer Member Exhibit will be on view from August 7 through September 19, 2021. Members will share their interpretation of the theme, Elements.
My entry in the exhibit is my acrylic painting, Boston Skyline. The painting was inspired by the stunning view of the skyline presented to me when I was stuck in traffic driving into Boston one morning. The bright sunlight created strong shadows and the hard lines of the buildings against the blue sky and soft clouds really appealed to me. I took a picture with my cell phone and began work on the painting when I (finally!) got home. The traffic was real! The tall buildings against the sky gave me the feeling of Air, perfect for the Elements theme.
