Tricia and Kate did a splendid job coordinating the kick off show at the new Golden Thread Gallery. Hats off to the both of them for such a well organized and fun event.
Golden Thread Gallery is a new gallery located on the grounds of Holy Family Retreat Center in West Hartford, CT.
The announcement was made back in early march calling local artists to come and paint the grounds. There were so many beautiful scenes to choose from. And I was waiting anxiously for spring to arrive, only to find that my seasonal allergies were really bad this year. Even though it wasn't possible for me to paint outside... sneezing and wheezing... I went several times to walk the property, do a few quick sketches and take lot of pictures.
The painting to the left is a walking Labryinth which I walked several times while I was there. It was not only peaceful and serene among the lush green background but I found an overwhelming joy bubbling up inside as I could feel a deep inner connection with the Holy Spirit that resides in me.
These pieces were created back in my studio and... what a nice surprise two of them sold at the silent auction on Thursday May 30th.
I look forward to entering a piece in the next show called "Stillness" Here's a link to their website Golden Thread Gallery
