Leigh Slingluff's artwork on display until July 5, 2019.
Visit BankGloucester on Main Street in Gloucester to view a collection of Leigh’s paintings. They will be on display at the bank from Saturday, May 11 through Friday, July 5, 2019.
A Rockport resident, Leigh Slingluff paints and draws every day, either outside or at her home. She is currently an artist member of the Northshore Art Association, a selection of her paintings are on exhibit there from March to December every year.and the
Artists statement: Look out to the horizon, be still, and watch. This quiet act of observation is full of surprises. Every moment, colors changing, clouds swiftly moving by, and waves repeating themselves in patterns. Recording my daily observations in paint is a challenge that has motivated me for the past several months. So, I have found a bit of time every day to record the sky and sea with paint. I paint small color studies in oil, from the same lookout every day, in my seaside neighborhood in Rockport, MA.
I work quickly and paint from direct observation, often with a palette knife and always with colors mixed in the moment. My small format supports the desire to record the changing light and swiftly moving clouds in a quick and simplified manner. The sea underlines the sky in most of my studies, but the line is never the same color, and each sky influences the line; always unique to the season, month, day, and time. It is my goal to record a full year of the colors of sky and sea. Peek at her progress on Instagram and on her website: IG: Leigh H. Slingluff @galobster www.leighslingluff.com

Phishing - Don't take the bait!Mar 8, 2019
Phishing is when you get emails, texts or calls that seem to be from companies or people you know. But they're actually from scammers. They want you to click on the link or give personal information (like password) so that they can steal your money or identity, and maybe get access to your computer.
Scammers use familiar company names or pretend to be someone you know. They ask you to click on a link or give passwords or bank account numbers. If you click on the link, they can install programs that lock you out of your computer and can steal your personal information.
They pressure you to act now - or something bad will happen.
If you have just ONE New Year Resolution...Jan 25, 2019
Save More for Retirement!!
This year you can save more in your workplace 401(k) retirement savings account. The maximum contribution has increased from $18,500 in 2018 to $19,000, so consider increasing the amount you are contributing, making sure you’re saving at least enough to get your employer match.
Remember that even the most generous matching policy won’t be enough to fully fund your retirement, so it's always a good idea to save as much as possible.
you don’t have a match or a 401(k) plan, consider setting up a recurring
auto-deposit into a Roth IRA. In 2019 you can contribute up to $6,000,
assuming you meet the income requirements (less than $120,000 a year if you’re
single, or $189,000 a year if you’re married).
If you’re able, you can contribute to both a 401(k) and a Roth IRA for a grand total of $25,000 saved for retirement.
