Working on a motif I had begun while at my artist residency in Provincetown, MA this past summer. The working waterfront area there is rich with image possibilities and this is a bit of an abstracted view of the piers. It may well become a larger painting with emphasis on the verticals of the piers in contrast to the boats. “Waiting for Tomorrow” was done on paper with ArtGraf carbon and colored pencils. Completed as part of the 30 paintings in 30 days project of the blog http://www.lesliesaeta.blogspot.com/

Seasonal transitions in New England are not so subtle hints that change is in the offing. Temperatures rising or lowering dramatically, colors intensifying or diminishing, textures smoothing or coarsening, sounds echoing or softening. Heading into winter or welcoming spring are the transitions that I look forward to each and every year. They find their way into my artworks in both subtle and obvious ways through more vibrant or subdued colors, understated or bolder forms, quieter or busier textures, and complex or simplified patterns. This particular painting known as Coming Solstice or Between the Seasons is a reflection on the landscape forms that surround me as well as my use of them in building a painting. It is the start of a new season and this approach will be the beginning of a new series of work for 2015. Hope you have great things on tap for the coming New Year.
