As shown in the recent movie, “Maudie” (go see it!), this is a panoramic shot from the doorway of her house, which has been dismantled and then reassembled indoors, like a ship in a bottle, inside the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia in Halifax. She was small in stature, but a giant among folk artists. With an even bigger heart.
This is my attempt at a modern still-life, a la
Donald Sultan. No fake 3d shaded grapes or old Chianti bottles. No sir! Just flat 2d surface w minimalist palette.
I titled it “Black Lemon”…as a conceptual piece, and a play on the fact that it was actually white. It was not until afterwards that I discovered it was not a lemon at all! While discussing this artwork with one of the other participants, she suggested that it was in fact a lime.
…this strategy seemed to work for the Chinese billionaire who recently bought a Modigliani painting on credit.

I participated in AB 224 last night at the PEI Brewery. Lots of fun. I did a very quick painting (in only 5 minutes!) based on one of my life drawing sketches. Over 500 patrons paid $15 each to watch 2 groups of 6 artists paint works in only 20 minutes, before casting their ballots for their favorite. And there was beer of course, since the event was held in the event space at the PEI Brewery.
What a great way to spend Valentines!
