“Let there be many windows to your soul, that all the glory of the world may beautify it.”
At Beekman 1802, we’ve always believed in creativity and love introducing you to other creative people that can inspire creativity in you.
So we’ve decided to do a series of “Meet the Artist” contests. We’ll introduce you to an artist whose work will stimulate your own creative flow, and as an extra incentive to get those juices flowing, someone will win a piece of that artist’s work!
The artist not only gets to promote their work, but, who knows, we might even spawn a new artist that will be featured in this very same series five years from now!
By this point in winter, nearly everyone is looking forward to Spring, so the person who can convey that desire the best through writing a SPRING acrostic will win the beautiful piece of art pictured above.
Leave your acrostic in the comments section below. Artist Michele Mueller will choose the winner on March 11.
About the artist:
Working full-time as an Administrative Assistant most of her life was right up Michele’s alley…or so she thought. Once her son, Matthew, was born she became a stay-at-home mom. While being a wife and mother consumed her days and nights, in between were those few short moments where she wondered what she was doing to take care of herself – how she was meeting her wants and needs. Michele was longing for something that was just about her – and she found that in painting. She chose to use vintage windows as her canvas.
To her, each old window and old barn has a story to tell and it’s her task to bring those stories to… color. Each mile she drives to retrieve a window, each piece of sand paper she uses on a frame, each slide of the putty knife to each brush stroke are all part of bringing out those stories. To Michele, each story takes her back to days of living in the small village of Schuylerville, in upstate New York, and spending family weekends on her great-grandparent’s farm in Plattsburg, New York.
Adding to each story is a unique see-through canvas , a “window, into the past. If you can look through any window and see the world outside as it is now then take a look into the past through these Panes of Art to read the colors, the shapes and the stories that Michele has chosen to share.
