Aggregate Abstractions and the Sea

Beverly Rippel paints the sea in Lanesville, Cape Ann

June 5 - July 3 . 2021

“I often paint in Lanesville, Gloucester on Cape Ann, Massachusetts in the same exact place by the sea where -- throughout many years -- my sisters and brothers, children and grandchildren have come to visit, learn to swim in the granite ‘bathtub’, and enjoy the beauty of the land. The huge rock formations, the scratches and marks on them, and the shadows cast by the sun cascading on them are nearly the same as I remember when I first laid eyes on this sea sanctuary at just 5 years old.

It is exhilarating to paint with my feet sometimes in the water as I work just ahead of the incoming or outgoing tide. The wind, the mist, and the sun all get mixed up in the orchestration of the paint’s quickened movement. In turn, the paintings become love poems.”
