This is the print of the painting I created for the Topsfield Town Hall. The original painting was gifted to the town of Topsfield by the family of Joan Panella, patron of the arts and like-long resident of Topsfield. Framed by the Art of Framing, Middleton, MA. Visit my print gallery.
Beach combing, 12 x 6 x 2 inches framed in a white shadowbox frame.
The Cape Cod Bay was the inspiration for this painting. I was beach combing along the shoreline at low tide on a mid-summer afternoon when the cape felt quiet and tranquil. I remember a very peaceful feeling, the smell of salt in the air, the early afternoon colors of green, gold, bronze, and blue, and the tide way out to sea during the full moon of July. Just me and the mid-summer glow of summer as I walked along the beach on a summer’s day. Visit my Small Works for Small Spaces gallery.
Wow! What a beautiful painting from a beautiful artist. I love to hear the history behind your paintings. I truly appreciate learning from a true master of her craft.
Elegant, Delicate, and tranquil is how I would describe Meg Black’s paintings. Upon viewing Meg’s work I was encapsulated and was immediately brought to the moment portrayed in the painting. The realistic nature scenes are absolutely magical. Any room can be uplifted with the positive energy of her pieces, they are breathtaking to say the least. The aura behind her work leaves you with a warm feeling and truly makes me feel peaceful and relaxed.
Read about my pulp painting process.
Why paint with pulp? And what is pulp anyway? 👩🎨”Pulp” can be made from a lot of materials but in my case I use abaca. Abaca is a fiber from the inner bark of the banana tree. It is extremely strong, acid free, and holds color beautifully. Another use for abaca fiber is to make rigging for sailing vessels and tea bags (ever wonder why yea bags don’t fall apart when dipped in hot water)? 👩🏽🎨 If you paint with oil on canvas, there is a good chance you are using abaca. Commercial canvas of the highest quality includes abaca fiber to ensure it is strong enough to be framed without glass. 👩🎨But why bother using this material when commercially made paint is available? The answer is simple: texture. My work is largely representational with nature imagery as my primary subject. Nature is not only 3D but full of a variety of textures. By using this versatile medium that has a textured quality, I am able to recreate the many textures of nature in my work. From still ponds to crashing shorelines to fields of wild flowers, abaca allows me to recreate these textures on a 2D surface. 👩🏼🎨 My slogan “recapture the emotion of nature” comes from using this wonderfully textured material as my painting medium.
