Princeton Village was just completed February 2009, Happy Birthday Princeton, I was moved by the charm of the view and of course how the light lit up the houses. Look beyond to the range of colors which completes a beautiful New England vignette.
Regatta Morning Ah one of my favorite paintings last season, I can still feel the feeling of the crisp ocean air even though it's August we're cool and comfortable, I'm on the Island's sand bar which houses the Edgartown Lighthouse, Half way through a family of ducks come and nibble at my toes, wish I had some bread for them. I rarely bring any food or drink with me when I paint, I'm all business. Oh what a day, two days in a row. First day I put in all the background and second all the boats. Exciting they were all active.
Sirius, the Tug I am so fortunate to capture a moment in time. This tug was in for repairs in Vineyard Haven harbor in August 2008 and I love to paint boats, usually they are more of a challenge because they bobble in the water or they move on the next day, this one was in long enough for me to really get a feel of the old rust bucket, I love it!
Bright Spot in the Shade Inspired by the light that popped and the flowers staged in an otherwise cool green place. It was done on Martha's Vineyard where I lived 7 summers and into the fall when the season allows for a longer painting season.
Portrait of Susan Attention anyone that ever thought about being captured on canvas. The Princeton center is home to the Princeton Art Society and the Portrait group meets every Tuesday to do just that. We look for volunteers where 15 or 20 artists work on their very own style of painting portraits. The model has the option of buying one if they so choose but is not obligated. If you have a special occasion or want to mark a big event such as a graduation, anniversary, accomplishment, how about a wedding painting, one to give to the groom or one of you both!

Jordan Bahosh is a professional artist, since 1973 she has made
art her business and livelihood. She has been a member of the
portrait group in Princeton since the mid 1990's and enjoys keeping
her work sharp by participating in the workshops each week especially
in the winter. Otherwise she is in the open air recreating moments
in time. "An artist is a historian" she says, "capturing
sights that sometimes dissapear." Her
painting of "The Shacks" in Gloucester was featured
last year at the Northshore Art Association annual fund raiser.
The shacks no longer exist they were taken down before they would
fall into the harbor. Sharon
is a member of the Northshore Art Association, Academic Artist
Association where she has earned awards and has membership status
at the Rockport Art Association, Oil Painters of America and the
Portrait Society of America. She recently returned from living
on the Vineyard where the painting season reached well into the
fall. She has set up house and a home gallery in Gardner. If you
look at the pictures you will see some Vineyard influence as well
as Cape Ann distinction. Look for her and her easle when the weather
warms up. Many scenes from here have been beckoning the artist.
She is currently represented by Willoughby Fine Art Gallery in
Edgartown, Martha's Vineyard, Aries East on Cape Cod, and Celebrations
Gallery & Gifts, Pomfret CT.
with Art I
moved from Martha's Vineyard in Sept. 2008 in order to establish
a new gallery, a home gallery. After having a studio separate
from my home for many many years I am finding living with my art
allows me to see where I've been and where I'm going, literally
since my paintings are done in the open air. Another plus is in
a time of rising fuel prices combining the spaces makes good sense.
