Hi, I'm Deidre Tao... thank you so much for making your way to my page!

My paintings evoke a sense of place, a feeling of being transported, and a spiritual resonance with the beauty of nature. Most of my work is inspired by the coastlines of Massachusetts where I come from. These paintings are direct results of the artist's retreats I take to explore, and I have my Patreon subscriber patrons to thank for these recent retreats! 

My process goes like this:
1. Every so often, I choose a landscape to scout for beauty.
2. A modest 3 to 5 day retreat is planned at that location.
3. Patrons' subscriptions fund the retreat.
4. Video, pictures, and sketches are produced on that retreat.
5. Patrons view these on our Patreon page.
6. Over time, paintings are made from the sketches and pictures and are shared here.
7. Paintings' progressions are shared here.
8. Paintings, in the form of prints or notecards, are offered as higher-tier rewards to my patrons.
9. Repeat! 

The journey started in February 2017, with a 3-day retreat to the North Shore at a quiet monastery near Plum Island, Massachusetts. Then, in November 2017, the journey continued eastward to Provincetown, the very tip of Cape Cod where there are sand dunes for miles. The year 2018 was spent painting from these two retreats. Work was shown at my solo show at the Dome Gallery in Cambridge, MA and in Cambridge Arts' Open Studios. The next retreat is coming in 2019... stay tuned.

I hope you'll join us, at whatever tier level you'd like to subscribe at. Thank you to all my Patreon patron subscribers. You fuel the journey!
