My usually tidy studio (aka our living room) is cluttered and chaotic, as I'm getting paintings framed and ready for my upcoming exhibit with my daughter, Felicity Lingle, at the Cold Mountain Cafe in Bethlehem, NH. The show will be hung on August 14 - stay tuned for details about a possible opening reception - and stay up until the end of September, I think. Our work is very different - I haven't seen what Felicity has been working on, but she has some of her work on her blog. Check out the link on my blog list.
The orange painting of the pear is not finished, but I'm not sure what to do with it - it's so different, more like a fairy tale illustration than my usual landscapes - what do you think? There is a theory that people either love or hate purple and orange - I'm thinking the edges of the painting need to be toned down to allow the pear and the landscape to dominate. I welcome any constructive feedback.
