Why must all good things come to an end?

"Shimmer" by Eli Cedrone 2014


As autumn approaches I feel as though I'm about to go over the cliff’s edge. This isn’t quite as ominous as it sounds – I like autumn, I just despise winter. Nothing endures quite like the seasons in New England, so once I accept the inevitable I embrace what lies ahead. 

I'm honored to have been chosen for the Artist in Residence by The Cape Ann Museum of Art and the Copley Society, Boston. I'll be spending the month of September painting and studying in the Rocky Nect area where my studio and apartment is located. 

The Cape Ann Museum tells multiple stories, from its earliest days as a fishing and shipping port to its mid-19th century role in the granite industry, to its charms of light and sea that have attracted countless artists from the 19th century to the present, Cape Ann boasts a rich and varied culture of historical and artistic achievement.

On the heels of my residency is my workshop in Tuscany, October 13-20, 2014. Believe it or not there is still time to join us if you happen to be the spontaneous type! The weeklong workshop includes villa accommodations, breakfasts and dinners, airport transfers, ground transportation, instruction and food, all for the cost of  $2850, double occupancy. The single supplement is $600. Airfare and lunches are not included. A detailed, but tentative itinerary will be sent to you upon registration.
