“If you let yourself be absorbed completely, if you surrender completely to the moments as they pass, you live more richly in those moments.” – Anne Morrow Lindbergh
It’s a given that artists pay attention to the little details so many of us miss, but then there are the artists – like Connie Publicover – who pay attention to the little details even most other artists miss. When, for example, is the last time you really paid attention to a drop of water?
From her home beside the Atlantic Ocean, Connie turns her focus on individual drops and the reflections and refractions she can create within them. The shapes and colours she captures are fascinating.
We are delighted to welcome Connie to the Herringbone family!
“I believe that the highest quality of life is full of art and creative expression and that all people deserve it.” – Frank X Walker
While some artists are drawn to big, dramatic scenes — sweeping vistas and moody skies and crashing waves — others, like Ottawa’s Danielle Beaulieu, seem to relish the tiny, often overlooked glimpses of beauty around us every day.
Painstakingly worked in thin washes of watercolour paint, Danielle’s series of paintings of antiques gives the viewer the opportunity to slow down and really observe the shapes and colours and patterns in ordinary objects like teacups and bottles and quilts.
Danielle is a popular painting teacher and workshop leader and we couldn’t be happier to include her in the Herringbone family!
