Working Side by Side

Starting fresh today with a body of new work. Keeping it interesting with two works at once! --- A portrait and a small still life. 

First up, a portrait of our handsome neighbordoodle. Working to showcase his sweet disposition and good looks shining through the curls. It starts with the eyes...


Also on this bleak April morning (with threats of more snow), I'm working on a small still life featuring my favorite of my still life glassware favs, a peach-colored Hungarian glass surrounded by the blossoms of a blue/purple hyacinth. At least the fragrance of the flower brings the promise of spring if the weather outside my window doesn't....

"Water & Light"

"Water & Light" is now displayed in the Robert Lincoln Levy Gallery, at the New Hampshire Art Association in Portsmouth, NH. The show features my latest work and the extraordinary digital b&w photographs of my friend, photographer Michael Sterling. Combining my colorful watercolor still life paintings with Michael Sterling's stark and striking black and white digital photographs made for a compelling show! I was so proud to hang my work next to Michael's.
