Sue’s Basket Shop
An artistic variation from Lovely’s traditional flowing landscapes, bright florals, and summery figures, this earth-toned workshop setting is nonetheless quintessentially Nantucket. The subject, artisan Sue Ottison, crafts a Nantucket Lightship Basket surrounded by 17 others in this softly north-lit setting. Sister-in-Law to Albert, another Nantucket personality featured in Lovely’s work, Ottison also owns the Lobster Shack from which the artist painted a variety of still life. Here, the figure embodies both personality and history, talent and craft. Quiet, focused, and voyeuristic, this slight variation in the artists’ portfolio is still stylistically Lovely, capturing soulful Nantucket living in warm shadows and coastal hints of orange and blue.
