Chattering Mind

This past summer, while browsing in a bookstore, I happened upon a slim volume devoted to the landscape paintings of a still-living Massachusetts artist named Mary Sipp-Green. If I were a painter, I would want to paint like her.

I thought you would be similarly moved by these paintings. They have an ethereal quality that reminds me of the night landscapes of Whistler.

Here’s a gallery whose website features Sipp-Green’s work. (You have to click on her name in the lefthand column.) Of her oil paintings, Jared Green, Ph.D., writes: “Here, we encounter spaces in which the apparent oppositions that separate the human from the nonhuman, the finite from the infinite, fuse into a sublime vision of what lies just beyond comprehension.”
