Skylights: New Project in Kent CT

Skylights is a site specific project for a new business, Barks 4 Cats, opening in Kent CT on May 23rd, 2009. Skylights features two triptychs of sky and clouds. The panels will be suspended from the ceiling, easily viewed as patrons enter and leave the business. I conceived of the skylights idea several years ago but lacked a venue to accommodate this unusual installation. After seeing my work, business owner Ann Privee approached the me with the idea of skyscapes hung from the ceiling and I immediately realized this would be a prefect opportunity to exhibit the Skylights work.

Privee, owner of Robin Alexander Ltd., also in Kent, decided to open a gourmet doggies bakery with a charitable focus. She plans to donate 50% of proceeds to help support charitable organizations, focusing on local animal shelters and agencies promoting animal welfare. Privee will also provide funding for organizations working with the autistic.  Barks 4 Cats will feature organic dog treats and other specialties. The business will be located at 5 Old Barn Road, Kent, CT.

Fine tuning

Today I’m back in the studio working on my Storm Series.
I’m at a point where I am fine tuning 4 pieces. It is painstaking work. I can’t rush it – I look more than paint and go slow.
I have 3 other pieces waiting in the wings. They need a break from me. They’re about half-way to where they need to go but I’ve been working with them too much, so I’ve lost my ability to see them clearly. When that happens, I need to back off!
