Welcome To My World

The Discipline Of Passion is a digital painting I created as part of the #31Nights portrait challenge hosted by American Artist Michael Bell @mbellart.  In this challenge a new complete picture is created every night with a focus on portraiture. Here we see a young girl dancing by a fountain in the moonlight.  As her partner withdraws into the background we see the shadow of another emerge at her fingertips.  What I love about this picture is the wistful look on the dancer's face.  Zoom in and look around. -Laura

Blue Claw, Red Claw This painting was inspired by a day spent on Long Island's South Shore Crabbing with my daughters, a pastime I enjoyed when I was young.  The blue claw crab in net struggles to free himself from the tangles of line, flailing with one claw while holding onto his mate with the other.

Growing up on Long Island many lazy days were spent at the beach.  
This scene, inspired by a recent trip to the Hamptons, shows a sunbather 
distracted by the surf having her lunch stolen by a wily seagull 

I remember long days watching the waves crash against the shore,
the smell of the salt and the sea, the gulls cry and the sun
warming my check while I buried my feet in the sand.

Inspired by the Hampton Classic my latest exhibit will be on display at the Port Jefferson Free Library the month of March.  These regal and beautiful animals have been a part of my life since I was a young girl. I hope you enjoy the show

BEGIN by L. Hill

"Strange how the desolate can harness such beauty.  Still, a picture never paints what the eye truly beholds and words cannot adequately describe those facts found by the senses."

I find Fall to be a prolific time, maybe it's the change in temperature or perhaps it is something more.  My new short story, BEGIN, is published here for your pleasure.  Enjoy-Laura
