First Bloom exhibition - opening November 17th

Tree (detail) 2017, Collage: gouache, graphite, paper, 
20 3/4" x 17 1/2"

First Bloom

November 17 - December 22, 2017

Reception: Friday, November 17 6-9 pm

I will be showing work from three different series in First Bloom. There will be collages (often involving koi, water lilies, and Little Betty Jane), paintings (gouache on various papers (these are mostly of Spring Flowers), and a stop motion animation video. 

Drawing is still primary in my practice as I stated in my last exhibition: Unstuck in January of 2016. But, now - painting is taking up more space and time in the studio. The animations have an added dimension - the use of green screen technology.

I hope to see you at the opening on November 17th!

Work from my trip to Florence: Spring 2016

Even though I've been back for a bit, I haven't posted any of the work I did this last trip to Florence. I spent a lot of time drawing and painting in the gardens because I find the explosion of blossoms simply irresistible. After I came back to NYC I have collaged in some of the drawings from trips to the various museums. All the work is 12 x 9 inches. The two sketchbooks (one for drawing and one with watercolor paper) are that size as well as the Yupo paper I painted on.

"Eve Weeping" 

"Tintorretto's Dog"

"Calla Lilies"

"Purple Irises"

"Purple Poppies"
