In the spirit of the holidays, I am excited to offer some of my paintings at special discounted prices, now through January 1, 2016!

All of these paintings are currently in my home studio or on our walls. Perhaps one of them would be just the right gift for someone you know and love this holiday season. (Perhaps even you!)

Follow this link to the paintings page on my website! You will see that the first dozen paintings have a sale price noted beneath the image, along with other information. Be sure to click on the “thumbnail” images to see the full paintings, as the thumbnails show only a sliver!
If you live near enough and would like to stop in to see paintings face to face, send me an email, and I’d be happy to set up a time for you to visit.
 If you’re interested in a painting and don’t live near by, drop me an email (or a message on Facebook), and we can take care of the details from there! (Email: sukiecurtis@gmail.com)

Meanwhile, my paintings can also be seen at Yarmouth Frame and Gallery in Yarmouth, Maine; and at Ocean House Gallery and Frame in Cape Elizabeth, Maine! Both galleries currently feature a holiday show with a wide selection of work.

Here’s wishing you a joyful, peaceful, and colorful holiday season!

Making Pancakes with my Dad

“Making Pancakes with my Dad,” oil on canvas, ©Sukie Curtis 2014

“It says here, ‘Beat two eggs,'” my dad would say, reading the box of Aunt Jemima pancake mix.

And then he would take the two eggs, place them still in their shells into the mixing bowl, and raise the wooden spoon (or was it an old-fashioned hand-cranked egg beater?) as if he planned to beat the eggs, shell and all.

“No, no!” my sister and I would cry in horror, or mock horror, depending on whether this was the first time or the fifteenth time he had tried this game. “You have to crack the eggs first before you beat them!”

I suppose there came a time when I was too old and too smart and too sophisticated to play along, when this game was met with rolled eyes or disdainful silence. But I don’t remember that part of the story.

Only the pleasures of being a little kid in the kitchen on a Saturday morning making pancakes with my Dad.

I didn’t set out to paint this scene or story. The title of the painting came to me after the painting was under way. It may have arisen from that pink spatula-like shape (a repeat visitor from the painting, “Islesford Kitchen”–see below). Or perhaps it was the three irregular circles, the two on the right running together like uncooperative pancake batter.

It doesn’t really matter. What matters most to me is that the painting carries some of the pleasure of remembering–morning sunlight, a playful mood, and soon warm pancakes ready to be eaten.

A Tale of Two Art Shows

A Tale of Two Art Shows

May has arrived and with it, rather suddenly, some very balmy weather, bulbs in bloom, and the delightful frothy greens of new leaves! There’s nothing quite like this time of year, especially after such a long winter.

 
Rather than a tale to tell, I have two invitations to extend! I currently have several paintings in two different art shows, both with opening receptions this weekend. And I’d love to see you at one (or both!) if you are able to attend! Feel free to bring a friend along, too.
 
On Friday, May 8 from 5 to 8 pm I will be celebrating at Ocean House Gallery and Frame, 299 Ocean House Road in Cape Elizabeth, Maine for the opening of “Interior Life,” featuring paintings by Brita Holmquist, Louise Bourne, and me. The show is already up and looks great! 
 
If you aren’t able to attend or simply want to enjoy a preview of works in the show, this link will take you to an online catalog of the show, under the title “Interior Life.”
 
And on Saturday, May 9 from 4 to 7 pm I can be found at Yarmouth Frame and Gallery, 720 US Route One in Yarmouth, Maine for the opening reception of “Winter Cowers as Spring Empowers.” This show includes works by more than two dozen artists, all “regulars” at Yarmouth Frame. It’s sure to be a fun reception making connections old and new!
 
Both shows will be up through the month of May (the Yarmouth show through June), so even if you miss the opening events, I hope you’ll be able to drop in another time to see them. Let me know if you’re heading in that direction, and perhaps I’d be able to join you.
 
In the meantime, enjoy the rich gifts of springtime!
