|Season of Interest 12 x 12 Watercolor on paper sold|
I have a garden book on Roses organized by “type, size, color and season of interest”. That last bit caught my attention… which season would I be interested in having roses? All of them, please. And what if I pledged to a whole Season of Interest? This summer, I will be interested in everything. Sort of like committing to lose ten pounds, but more fun. This season, I’ll nurture & grow my curiosity, I’ll exercise my attentiveness muscles, ask questions, take notice, talk less and observe more. 🙂

In Boston during the early twentieth century, artists such as Edmund Tarbell, Frank Benson and William Paxton practiced a form of painting that became known as the Boston School. These artists were participants in a revival of interest in the work of Dutch painter Jan Vermeer, thanks largely to the scholarship of Boston painter and instructor Philip Hale. Vermeer’s preoccupation with the female figure in an attitude of reverie, with light filtered across her form became a central theme of the Boston School. When Joseph DeCamp moved to Boston from Cleveland, he became one of the school’s primary proponents. ~James M. Keny
