On the Road - The Greenway Open Market - Boston, MA

Bee-you-tee-full. You really couldn't have asked for better weather this past Saturday at the Greenway Open Market. The temps lingered in the 80's and there was the perfect amount of sun. It welcomed in waves of tourists and locals who were out for a full day of artisan shopping, local food trucks, and site seeing.

Walk into Tracy Levesque's tent and you will be transported into a world of rich color, bold lines, and vibrant landscapes. This Greenway and SoWa regular offers beautiful original paintings, prints, and cards. Tracy grew up surrounded by the rural landscapes of the Berkshires and her passion for nature is reflected in her paintings. The stunning colors and well-defined lines of her moon paintings, and gnarled tree landscapes are reminiscent of stained glass. We chatted about our love of birch trees and I was happy to see that they are a repeated theme in Tracy's work. One of my favorite pieces of hers was Poppies in Field. The rolling flowered fields with vivid reds and greens was inspired by a friend's photo taken on a European vacation. To find the perfect painting for your home, swing by Tracy's website or visit her studio in Lowell. Make sure to like Tracy Levesque Fine Arts on Facebook to get updates and see new work.

I've been a busy bee since school has let out and have turned out dozens of new pieces, including  brass drawer pull necklaces, protractor necklaces, and tin car necklaces. It's always a pleasure sharing them for the first time at a show.

There were many fabulous visitors to the Greenway and some lucky customers went home with new Twitch and Whiskers pieces, including vintage magnet necklaces, blinking doll eye necklaces, Fun 'n' Games rings, and pinback button necklaces.

I will be back at the Greenway for two more shows. I'm already making new gems for the upcoming dates. Follow Twitch and Whiskers on Facebook to get sneak peeks and visit my Etsy shop for new pieces. 

Here is where you can find me the rest of the summer. The fall/winter calendar is starting to take shape. Stay tuned!
