The Blue Wave Art Gallery and Ovedia in Amesbury, Massachusetts are both featuring my fine art photography in a “reflections” themed body of small works focused on a series of work from summer 2016.
Blue Wave Art Gallery offers a range of cultural events in the North Shore region bringing forward new ideas in art, music and innovation to the town of Amesbury. Blue Wave proudly exhibits the works of both established and emerging artists, and the gallery space provides a live stage for local musicians. And, finally, we hold art classes and lectures on a regular, monthly basis. Please email Gallery Director, Asia Scudder to purchase any of the works displayed below.
Ovedia is a lovely chocolaterie and espresso bar located in the heart of historic Amesbury, just around the corner from the Blue Wave Art Gallery.
Reflections on the River captures the timeless essence of the history of wooden boat building in Amesbury, Massachusetts and intersects that history with views of reflections caught in the motion of the waters of the Merrimack River. Continue reading
I am reminded this morning of this quote from Louise Hay:
“This year is like no other year I have ever lived before.” – Louise L. Hay
There feels as if a great darkness has descended upon us and we are trapped there, penned in, with little route for escape. The darkness will hold us captive unless we find our way out into the light through whatever openings we can find throughout our daily lives.
We are the master’s of our own lives. We make the choices of our own destiny. Let us find the light where we can and rise out of the darkness not giving power to the forces that wish to hold us down. The darkness must not win. Find your empowerment where you can, and let that guide you.
As a visual spatial person, I see most everything within the boundaries of a frame. That said, I feel that photography comes naturally to me. Many, many years ago I painted, oils, but I love the fact that with my camera I can instantly create art and channel what I see into something tangible to share with others.
Here in the photos below, I was fascinated by the patterns created by the colors and shapes, mixed with reflection of the building and the motion of both the Mallard ducks and the waters of the Merrimack River at the historic Lowell’s Boat Shop in Amesbury, Massachusetts.
Today, I re-mind myself that sometimes it is best to sit patiently and wait for things to happen in due course. I recognize that every good thing comes to those who wait. I trust the Universe to lead me in the right direction as I rest in the natural flow and order of things that may come my way. I cannot push, I can not force an outcome. I can only allow things to happen in its own manner. Patience, is an intent that allows me the space to let the flow happen on its own. I ask myself this day, to allow the natural order and flow to lead me. I set my intent on the path that unfolds ahead of me. And so it is… Intent makes manifest.
Blessed Be… Pamela
The two old dories sat patiently on the river bank, watching guard over the dory floating quietly in the river, tied to the dock below.
“One day you’ll join us here,” the two old dories said.
The dory in the river replied, “I know, but for now I’ll just be here in the moment. Peaceful and still on the river.”
