Laurie Morgan invites you to view her solo art show, Castles, Cottages and Countryside, at FastFrame during the month of June, 2019. There will be an artist’s reception Saturday, June 8 from 1:00-4:00pm.
The exhibit includes a selection of watercolor and pastel paintings from her travels, showcasing landscapes, florals and architecture. “I get a thrill rendering on canvas the sights I see in my travels around the world,” said Morgan. “I’m intrigued by historic architecture and most of my work contains part of a house, castle, cottage, cabin, barn or other structure. I love the history behind the buildings and ruins, and try to convey their stories. Many of my paintings have windows or doors, arches and pathways. These mean to me adventure, surprise and levels of spirituality. I’m also fascinated by man’s use of natural substances such as, stone, brick, wood and often add these to my work as well. Equally I love flowers and gardens and try to include them wherever I can. I often use my own garden for inspiration for many of my floral paintings.”
