The public is invited to attend Laurie Morgan’s solo art show, Castles, Cottages and Countryside, at FastFrame throughout the month of June. There will be an artist’s reception Saturday, June 8 from 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.
The exhibit, “Castles, Cottages and Countryside,” 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 … 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.”
