I am very happy to invite you to join me at the opening night of ‘Shining Through’ by Ann Trainor Domingue— my new series of work inspired by my longstanding curiosity and attraction of waterfront life and how I connect visually and spiritually with this beautiful space at the edge of the land and sea.

The opening reception will be held at the beautiful George Marshall Store Gallery located at 10 Lindsay Road, York, Maine on Saturday, July 14th, 5-7, exhibition runs through August 19th.

The gallery building is part of Old York Historical Society that works to preserve and promote the rich history of York. The Gallery is located on the York River with a working dock and shack right behind the gallery on the wharf– a beautiful location in any season.

I hope you will join me as I exhibit many of my newest works all tied to my fascination with waterfront spirit. Please share my invite with those you know who love the all things coastal. Thank you and hope you’ll stop by to say hello–it means a lot to me to have your support.

Bridge over the Piscataqua River

Village on the Piscataqua, Portsmouth NH; acrylic on canvas, 30×30.  Available soon at Kennedy Gallery, Portsmouth

Bridge work has been ongoing for many years as needed repairs and replacements are done over the fast moving waters that join New Hampshire and Maine. We all depend on these critical crossings to get where we want to go. Some inconveniences and longer routes are simply part of living in a seacoast community as residents and tourists depend on the success of these impressive construction projects completed via cooperative arrangements between our two states.

As an artist I am also impressed by the design of the bridges and how they visually create connections from wide expanses of sky and water toward the grounded village communities at the bases. In this painting I have used the arched curve to tower over the village below as work and worship and play continues on daily in the cool shadows. Here’s hoping for a successful bridge-opening this summer as the new Sarah Long Bridge welcomes travelers again.

Lesson learned: Patience in building a strong bridge is paramount.

Final look at the painting process 36×36, acrylic on canvas.

In this painting there are 8 segments, each could be a small painting on its own but I have opted to build all these into one large 36×36 to see if I could unify all pieces together on one panel. I have done small paintings of the segments in the past using other color schemes and slightly different designs. But putting them all together in a block-like fashion and hoping to retain a sense of order–not in a chronological or book style– but in a way that allows the viewer to make up their own idea of what this piece is saying to them.

Scenes like this in coastal Maine–full of shapes and color, lines and forms, complex details and light–are scenes that I enjoy sorting out and abstracting elements to work with. I don’t know the exact outcome when I begin just that there are enough things that interest my imagination and then I begin the process of building a painting.
