Art is for Mothers and May and...

Pink Door, Yellow Fruit, ©Sukie Curtis, 2011, oil on canvas


This painting is one of several that will be on view and for sale at the Yarmouth Frame Shop and Gallery at 720 US Route One in Yarmouth, Maine beginning this Saturday! If you are in the area, be sure to stop by for the opening reception between 4 and 7 pm on Saturday, May 7.

I am one of twenty-eight artists (!) whose work will be showing in the gallery for the month of May, and perhaps beyond. Lots of variety, lots to enjoy, lots to choose from.

And I have more at home. Perfect for an art-loving mother on Mother's Day or for a soon to be graduate or birthday . 

My latest series features more pears, some with other fruits and flowers. I love drawing and painting pears (and yes, eating them too, although sometimes they over-ripen and rot while still serving as my models!)

Here's a pear painting that is at the Yarmouth Frame Shop:

Beautiful work, Sukie. I'm always so happy to see your evolution as an artist! So proud of your courage to follow your heart...

I like thinking of your beautiful artwork ripening as well...ripening in a good way, blossoming and gettting ready for the perfect time to be shared with the world. Keep painting, Sukie, your work is lovely.

Thank you both--Meredith and Jenny! I love those words--evolution and ripening. You are both women who know and live those words!
