Carol Perron Sommerfield "Seasons" March 16 - April 30, 2019
Reception: Saturday, April 6th 2 pm - 4pm
Each season reveals my favorite subjects and activities. From discovering and painting abandoned houses in summer, to reveling in the bodacious color of autumn, to honoring the serenity of winter and to feeling the pent-up desire of spring. I have a strong connection to the seasons and love each one differently and equally. The seasons are also a metaphor for life. Painting helps me appreciate and think about larger questions of our own transitions through life. Luckily, the seasons are circular, spring always follows winter and brings hope. The joy, color and boldness representing the incredible beauty in the world is why I paint. I choose to make my art an appreciation and honor of the beauty of life.
