Wineberries


The prize at the end of July, wild wineberries free for the picking along many Connecticut roadsides and meadows. Wineberries can be eaten fresh off the cane, reduced into syrups, sprinked on ice cream or pound cake, made into cobbler or frozen to be enjoyed long after the season. - Nancy Boudreau

A note in response to a friend's compliment. . .

I’m just painting what I see, and what I’m seeing happens to be a photo displayed on the computer screen. For me, the enjoyment here is playing with the paint, trying to match color and visual texture, and then trying to balance out what’s happening in the painting itself without regard to the object/subject.

Generally, I think you’re right, abstract painting is where creativity is most evident. With an abstract the artist isn’t measured by their ability to render images of objects – an artist can concentrate on the real properties of painting: color, contrast, rhythm, texture, tone, hue, line, balance, etc. etc.. The painting becomes a beautiful object itself, instead of just an exact rendering of a beautiful object.

Art is fun – it makes one think.
