Sunset From The Bridge, oil painting by Melody Phaneuf

Portal to summer solstice, early June exhibits the most delectable sunsets. Boundless days and saffron skies await us.

Gloucester, being surrounded by water, mirrors the sky’s radiance, luring seekers of light. Among them artists, fortunate to find their way here find it impossible to leave.

It is both soothing and astonishing to live immersed in this natural beauty. Familiarity with landscape, sky and sea cradle one in the soul of Nature, then jostle with an unexpected color, texture, or rhythm.

Sunset From The Bridge is a view only 300 feet from where I reside and pass by every day. It is a forever-changing panorama of color, movement and light that never fails to enchant. An intimate little painting done rapidly, Sunset From The Bridge captures a moment’s glow.

A suite of 20 paintings that explore my favorite niches of Gloucester will be on view June 29th at Boston’s Liberty Hotel, 215 Charles Street, Beacon Hill from 6:00- 8:30. The Liberty offers a lovely complimentary wine tasting during the exhibit.


Boston Artist, Melody Phaneuf is well known for her evocative still life, landscape, and portrait paintings. Her paintings are regularly on view at The Guild of Boston Artists, 162 Newbury Street; at Fenway Studios, Boston by appointment; and North Shore Art in Gloucester from May through October.
