Description of paintings at Hanson Gallery

Artist Marie Massey has a new collection of Lyrical Landscapes from Carmel to Tuscany at Hanson Gallery Carmel.

Myriad brush strokes, sensitive line, and a brilliant palette bring life to paintings of lazy vineyards with Spring blooms, meandering gardens, sunlit architecture, and the romance of Italy and Carmel, California.

Venetian Twilight is a 30" x 40" of Venice just after dawn as the ancient city slowly wakes up. Gondolas rock gently in the harbor, the sky lights with the morning sun and reflections of centuries
old architecture sparkle in the Mediterranean.

Vintner's Meadow is a 24" x 30" of a small vineyard in Tuscany. Red poppies bloom in spontaneous
profusion among rambling vines ensconced in an olive grove.

Venzano Gardens, Tuscany is a 24" x 48" of a hill top garden that was once a monastery in the hills of Tuscany. A vine-covered trellis leads through a casual garden of Iris, poppies, climbing roses and Juniper shrubs to a stone building with a terracotta tile roof.

Marie paints en-studio at the Hanson Gallery several days a week during which time
she has painted many smaller scale landscapes of Carmel which are now available in the gallery.
There is a 24" x 12" vertical painting of the Carmel Mission bell tower entitled "Mission Bell".
This painting offers a unique hilltop perspective of the historical Carmel Mission in a subtle palette
of blues, greens and golds.

There is a 12" x 12" painting entitled, Mission Door, of a carved wooden door in an adobe
wall that leads to a courtyard dressed in roses and palm fronds. Lastly there is a 10" x10"
piece entitled Carmel Cottage of a tiny cottage in the shade of a California oak tree also on the
Carmel Mission grounds.

Hanson Gallery

I am happy and excited to be in Hanson Gallery Carmel, . They have a beautiful location in the Carmel Plaza on the lower or courtyard level.
I paint there on site in the gallery several days a week when I am in California. You are invited to come chat anytime. There is a to die for coffee shop in the plaza that makes the best nonfat mochas I have ever tasted.

Tomorrow, December 5th, they are going to have the annual Christmas tree lighting in the little park right across from the plaza at 4:30 pm. Afterwards there will be a party in the plaza. Just bring a can of food for the local food drive.

Artist Venturing into Cyberspace

Trying to find a community of fine artists and art lovers out there.

Found a new website: where they publish art events going on all over the US.

This is my first time blogging. It would be fun to communicate with other artists, collectors, people interested in painting. Does anyone know about any up coming plein air events happening in Santa Cruz, Silicon Valley, Monterey or Carmel areas? Would love to hear.
