Durham painter talks art, life and pampered pooches

The Town Times posted an article on April 19, 2013 by Diana Carr on Terry and her use of art as a meditation.  The photo shows Murphy Bourret the amazing therapy dog who died  suddenly a few weeks later at 6 years old due to pesticide use by a neighbor , who has since moved.  Beagles and Terriors are at very high risk of getting lymphoma from lawn care products because they sniff a lot and have a predispositon along with Goldens and many other breeds.  The loss of Murphy has been devastating.  He was a loving and joyful dog who lead us to do lots of things because he got such joy when he saw people.  His greetings to art students who came for lessons were remarkable. He loved children and was going to be working with an autistic child the day he was put down.   A campaign against misuse of chemicals has been waged by Terry and Don.  If you google:  Murphy Bourret and then open "Beware of the little flags on the Grass" you will see an amazing response.  Make a comment and be a part of change so that Murphy's death can make a difference and save other children and dogs from this dangerous practice.  Find out about how to take care of your lawn organically. Find out all the risks that these chemicals wage on the environment and your loved ones.  Thank you.

The painting on my home page, Main Street Traffic, is currently in the Madison Art Society's exhibition where it won the Bosworth Grier Award. This was one of a series of urban scenes painted on location in Middletown, Ct. I am featured in an article in the Middletown Press covering the "invasion" of Main Street by myself and some other artists while creating these works. (Access the article at A-rBkS)


I currently am featured in two prestigious art anthologies. "100 Artists Of New England," compiled by noted art historian E. Ashley Rooney, is described as "a great resource for artists, collectors, art dealers and art historians." It is available on Amazon. "Best Of Worldwide Landscape Artists" was sponsored by Dick Blick Art Materials and Savoir Faire and is described as " a visual journey celebrating outstanding artists from around the world."


Last year I painted "Marilyn's Chickens" on site at our neighbor's chicken coop last Summer. These girls are very special to me. In addition to providing a regular bounty of ultra-fresh eggs, that painting (in my "New Works" gallery) won an award at the Connecticut Plein Air Painters Society exhibit, juried and judged by famed Gloucester artist and author, Charles Movalli.


I was recently in the "On Holiday: The Artist Travels" exhibit at the Lyme Art Association and the Catharine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club exhibition at the Salmagundi Club in New York City.


Currently I am exhibiting in the Connecticut Plein Air Painters Society juried exhibition and the Lyme Art Association's Elected Members show, both at the Lyme Art Association in Old Lyme.
