After a very successful Somerville Open Studios I kind of dropped off the artmaking map.

But finally – after a full month of not painting – I have finished another painting.

The goal of this piece was to capture a bit of the anonymous beauty of living in Somerville.  I’m quite taken with the way the light rakes across the buildings at sunset, and the simple repetitive geometry of the triple decker houses.

Photos on a dreary day

Normally I use Fridays to work in the studio and clean up the house. Today I had family in town and we ended up going to the newly added-on-to Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. It was lovely but you can’t take photos.

I did manage snap these three during different parts of the day, and thanks to Instagram they look semi decent.
