 Tulip   Laurie Fox Pessemier   Acrylic/paper  23.5 x 17"   60 x 43cm  275.00   It’s hard to eclipse the ECLiPSE for news this week.  It was a non-event in Europe, where we didn’t have as much as a blink, but as my heart is often in the USA, I paid attention. The eclipse has always been a major event in my life.  I experienced a total solar eclipse with friends, Yo and Del, in Eastern Washington state in 1979.  It was a moment of big change in my life:  I had just moved to Seattl ..read more

  Mimosa   Laurie Fox Pessemier   Acrylic/paper  23.5 x 17"   60 x 43cm  275.00   My best friend isn’t coming to visit in April as planned.  Events beyond our control have upset the apple cart; pie will not be served.   Life is full of surprises.   Berlino, meanwhile, is happy we came back to Roccamalatina.  He loves his yard, and for the first time, we are here to see different wild flowers in bloom. We heard the cuckoo this morning, perhaps the earliest ever.  &nb ..read more

  31 March 2024  Stimigliano RI   ITALIA Baffled Bunny   Laurie Fox Pessemier    Acrylic/canvas    9.5 x 12  24 x 30cm  250.00  Walking up the street today I noticed someone’s name on their mailbox.   It was big letters, edge to edge “FARAONA”.  It had the sense of being cut out of a newspaper.   When you see big letters like that, placed near one another, on paper, it gives a different sense than reading it on a screen.

  24 March 2024  Roccamalatina, MO   ITALIA Beat the Drum Laurie Fox Pessemier  Acrylic/paper 24 x 17"   61 x 43cm  225.00  Early this week, we went to Bologna.  We drove about an hour to arrive near where our painting workshop participants will be staying next week.   Berlino, panting hysterically in the back of the car, jumped out as soon as we opened the hatch. I wonder why I don’t go to Bologna more often – it’s a terrific place.  I am glued to my chair with th ..read more

  Lemons from Chris' Tree   Laurie Fox Pessemier   Acrylic/canvas  11 x 13"   28 x 33cm   375.00 At our Sunday Salon, an artist read aloud some of my writings from Artnotes Paris.  I was really surprised at what I had written all those years ago: about change, and feeling young.  Change keeps us on our toes, and thinking.

Mimosa   Laurie Fox Pessemier   Acrylic/paper  17 x 23.5"   60 x 43cm  275.00 All of our work is available as prints, also. I’ve spent nearly two weeks now completing the Pompeii book Blair and I started in January.  He finds another picture he’d like to add, I discover all the writing is different sizes.  I can get super focused on this whole thing, like I am one with the computer.  In painting, being one with my subject or my canvas is heavenly;  being one with the computer is ..read more

  Snake with Offering (Pompeii)  Laurie Fox Pessemier    Acrylic/canvas    10.5 x 18"  27 x 46cm  450.00  I am typing Artnotes on a new “old” computer.  I purchased a reconditioned HP, because my 12 year old Asus was failing.  The Asus still works, but I really needed a different computer to run our Zoom Art Salons.   This one is just a few years old, and renewed.   And it cost one fifth of what I would pay for a new one. I am hoping a genius is inside h ..read more

  Lola and the Satyr Laurie Fox Pessemier  Acrylic/canvas  13 x 16"  33 x 41cm  550.00 We are on our way back North from our sojourn at Pompeii.  We are leaving 48 hours early, because the weather is very windy and rainy, and predicted to continue like this through Monday.  Conditions make it impossible to paint outdoors, but we are ready to leave, anyway.   We never got to Naples, nor to Amalfi, but will likely return to tie up a few loose picture-ends and visit later this spring.  In fact, Naples is ju ..read more

  Theatre Pompeii  Blair Pessemier    Acrylic/canvas    13 x 18"  33 x 46cm  450.00  I am having the most wonderful time in Pompeii. Despite a nasty respiratory virus (almost as bad as Covid), we have managed to paint in the excavation every day but one.  We also go to outlying beaches so Berlino can dig legally.  His take isn’t nearly so fruitful as the treasures of Pompeii, but he digs holes in which he can conceal his whole giant body.  From the shore, we admire Vesuvius, Capri, an ..read more
