Hiram and Lucy Otis can’t wait to move into their pastoral English manor house…just as soon as the ghost moves out. That’s right, Canterville Hall comes complete with a howling, green ghoul, but only if Sir Simon (the ghost) can remember to bring the green mist with him. This classic Oscar Wilde tale spins the Otis family through a maze of dithering maids, blustering bosses and an English realtor who’s always looking for a free lunch. The mystery unfolds amid flashes of thunder and disappearing guests. Only when the Otises can figure out the curse of Canterville Hall can Sir Simon rest in peace. Riverfront Theater, Milford.
Sky Suite is a collection of layered oil paintings ranging in size from 2” x 3” to 40” x 40” created in 2016 through the present. Sky Suite paintings create and communicate a feeling of calm and peace. Tranquility is a theme throughout the collection. It consists of four series: Cloudscapes, Trees, Birds, and the Gargoyle Series. The collection includes over 80 works and the paintings often contain a suggestion of location at the bottom of the canvas. The palette is predominantly shades of blue hues: cobalt, cerulean, French ultramarine and phthalo blues. I first establish the light source and flavor the clouds with yellows, pinks and violets appropriate to the time of day, season and weather. Rehoboth Art League.
