Jo M. Orise Art Update – May – June 2019

Three things…kind of a late update. Sorry folks.

View from Beach – Owls Head Light

We returned from our winter sojourn and my studio needed to be reorganized. Again.

We moved in after finally selling our NH home. That was three years ago? Time does fly. Maybe it was two. No matter, I dreaded cleaning it out.

Emptied a pile of packed boxes marked Jo’s Studio. I should have given them to Good Will or a school teacher.

Yes, the studio is now clear of the clutter. It just so happens the kitchen is just outside my studio doors. Can you guess where my clutter of boxes marked Jo’s Studio are? You got it—in the kitchen.

WHO CARES about my boxes? I do.

Because I am opening my studio for the 2019 Scene About season. Tomorrow!

One scene about is the painting above. Oil, 8×10″ . Go to my website: click on the  Ocean-Water link.

Come by. Say hello. Let me know how you like the bigger and neater studio.
Oh, and you can comment on my artwork too.

Maybe you need one for that empty space on your wall in the bedroom, living room, kitchen and don’t forget the bathroom. How about the new garage…perk it up a bit.

Hours: Friday and Saturday 12:30 – 4 p.m. and Sundays 10 – 4 p.m.
Otherwise it is by appointment or perchance.

Now these hours are not etched in stone…some days I may have to close early or not open for different reasons, like conflicting hours for shows and family matters.

Meanwhile, I’ll keep painting and writing. I’ll keep you posted.

I will be participating in the 17th Annual Festival of Art May 30 – June 2. See poster below.

May 31, 12:30 – 4 p.m., I am hosting an Art 2019 Scene About Opening at my Orise Studio-Gallery here: 312 North Shore Drive, Owls Head, ME.

Come visit, bring a friend. I will have a few refreshments and a guest book sign in. Hope to see you here. I will most likely be nervous…since it is my very first official opening.

Should I invite the governor?

Don’t laugh. I belonged to the Artist Guild of the Kennebunks. Our first art opening in Kennebunkport, Maine included an invitation to the President and the First Lady. Mrs. Barbara Bush arrived with several Secret Service men and her secretary. The First Lady was so gracious. She admired every painting on display. I will never forget that experience.

Leave a comment.  I’ll be happy to hear from you.
