People’s Choice Award

The artwork of local artists will be on display at the Peabody Institute Library of Danvers at the Spring Awakening Exhibit. The show is sponsored by the Danvers Art Association.

My entry in the exhibit is Purple Twilight, a fanciful painting of a spring evening under a full moon at twilight. The trees are starting to show their delicate leaves, and the whole scene is reflected in the quiet water. Many thanks to all the folks who voted to choose my painting for the People’s Choice Award! I am deeply honored and grateful.

This painting was made especially for my talented late friend, Tommy Gagnon, who was the proprietor of Boston Woodturning at Artists’ Row in Salem. Tommy’s shop was a gem. To set off his exquisite wooden creations, he liked to show the work of local artists, including my many variations of trees. He liked the contrast of the earth tones of his wooden pieces with my jewel-toned paintings. Purple was the only color missing from his gallery section, he asked me to do a purple/ magenta piece, and here it is!  

I hope my painting warms your heart and will inspire you to visit my website, www.SheilaBillings.com
