Featured Artist for July - Betty Ganley
As most artists do, I find the world of travel essential to the creative process. The coast of Maine frequently calls, as do the coastal villages of Cornwall and Devon, England, not to mention the various marinas scattered along our very own Chesapeake Bay.For an artist there is no simple journey – to the store, to the beach, to a marina, to a garden center. Every trip is an adventure to the artist’s eye – a cornucopia of visual delights. Every familiar landscape is capable of presenting itself as an unfolding drama, be it due to a passing stormy sky, a gentle fog, the early morning light, or just a single dew drop decorating a fragile petal. The artist sees this all and always strives to capture that brief fleeting beauty.
