Rachel Paxton

Yesterday, opened with an exceedingly stressful excursion into Boston. Following two wrong turns and one near collision we found our destination - the studio of Rachel Paxton in Jamaica Plain.

It was a pleasure to finally meet Rachel in person. (She had been kind enough to express ship some paintings to the gallery in late August for 'Things With Wings'. )

Rachel gave me a wonderful selection of new paintings to take with me back to the gallery...some more 'winged things' and a few still life paintings!

I love Rachel's work - beautiful and powerful in their juxtaposition of delicate imagery with rich patterns and texture.
