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)

Such a long journey

round this peony blossom–

O tiny black ant!

My fault–this drumbeat!

Left the bucket upside-down,

And now it’s raining.

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!

Flowers for Lent?

Tall Pink Tulips, ©Sukie Curtis 2015

I was reminded recently by a friend that back in my “preacher days” (I was an Episcopal priest for 24 years), I gave a sermon once, if not more than once, about how the season of Lent doesn’t have to be about “giving something up” as many of us have been taught. It can be about taking on some new practice, especially something life-giving to your body, mind and/or spirit.

I remember clearly the first time I “dared” to break with the fasting/self-denial tradition and do something different for Lent. I should say, I remember precisely what I chose to do–go see a movie each week during Lent–and where I was–in Clarksdale, Mississippi where I was first Associate Rector, then “Priest in charge” of St. George’s Episcopal Church.

Two films I remember seeing during that Lent were “The Killing Fields,” and “Witness,” so a little online research suggests the year was 1985. It’s likely that in subsequent years I shared my experience in sermons in Foxboro and Concord, Massachusetts, and eventually at St. Bartholomew’s in Yarmouth, Maine, where my friend Jamie heard it and remembers it still.

All of this is a long way of saying that, although I’ve actually made a low-fanfare agreement with myself to write an hour a day during Lent, I might also be happy to “take on” buying a fresh bunch of flowers every week during Lent!

Sometimes I buy flowers with the “excuse” that they are models for painting. But why not buy flowers for the delight and encouragement they give to our winter-weary spirits? As bursts of color amid this winter’s very, very white landscape? As reminders to practice gratitude and compassion? Or as inspiration for your soul’s free-flowing contemplation of the beauty and mystery of the natural world?
