|"Museum Cupola" - 8 x 8 inches - oil on canvas|
Being an artist, I look at the world differently. Instead of just seeing a house, I focus on shadows and colors and interesting shapes. I am fortunate to live in a New England town with many charming buildings to inspire me. The Westford Museum sits in our town center and I admire it each time I drive by...especially the cupola. I love the pop of red color in contrast with the gray-green clapboards.
On a somber note, the Boston Marathon bombings were one of those wake-up calls where you take stock of all the good things in your life and count your blessings. I am amazed, impressed and in awe of all the police officers, medical professionals, and good Samaritans who rushed to help. These acts of kindness have restored my faith in humanity.
