Going Up, Coming Down, & In Print!
Updated: Sep 11
New England's prestigious Annual Juried Exhibition at the Danforth Art Museum in Framingham, MA will be on display through Sunday, Sept. 17. It's a show filled with beautiful and intriguing works of art in many mediums. The June opening was so crowded I had to return last month to be able to spend some time with each piece.
A great part of being included in this exhibit was the four-page review of the show in Artscope Magazine by the editor, Brian Goslow. This is what he wrote:
"My favorite work in the exhibition was Linda Post’s “The Willing Suspension of Disbelief”, a large 72” x 53” oil on linen canvas painting truly enhanced by its huge size that fully allows one to see features that wouldn’t have been apparent looking at a digital image. Not only do you feel the intense presence of two women leaning against an aging fence - one holding a seagull while a second gull, it’s open beak seemingly smiling as its red eye looks out at the viewer - but four tents, the event they’ve been raised for unapparent... The Danforth's annual juried show will always leave me with several artists whose work I will be following for years to come."
Hannah and Alison were the models for that painting. My next bit of news is that another painting that features Alison will be on exhibit at the New Britain Museum of American Art in Connecticut, from September 21 - October 8. That's Dance of the Pelicans, from my Costa Rica series.
If you live near either of these wonderful museums, it's well worth a visit to see the shows while they are still on display.
Five of my paintings were selected for publication in the Winter 2023 issue of Raw Art Review. Each has its own page. There is definitely a narrative aspect to my work; you could almost call it poetry. Literary magazines have always responded enthusiastically to my imagery and have often given me a home in their pages.
Completed! The first painting in my "Pink Moon" series is off the easel and ready to be framed. This is Swan Song of the Pink Moon, 24" x 24".
The Swan Song painting is available for purchase by contacting me directly. I also offer this work online as a museum quality signed print. Before I start the next one in the series, which will be four feet by six feet, I'm playing around with some smaller panels. Just sky and moon for now. The sky I want is such a deep, rich, violet blue that it's prudent to test my technique on something smaller.
My summer travels took me to Portugal, which was full of history, fantasy, art, music, and those incredible custard tarts they call natas. The images from that trip will, I'm certain, inspire future paintings - my travels often do.
I wish you a soft re-entry into autumn, with summer memories already tucked away.
