I liked the way these two Westport chairs were sitting on a lawn in Keene Valley on a bright sunny morning  .Like a married couple side by side. I extended the shadows a bit  so they would be touching, as if they were just tapping each other to say "i am with you". That hidden connection that couples have.  11x14 oil

Red Eft

I just like using cadmium red in a composition. When I found this little salamander on the trail I knew I wanted to do a little painting. Nothing complicated. just having fun. . 8x8in oil

Red White and Bluegrass

Another Memory piece from August. On our last night in Keene Valley, the town had a square dance on the lawn at the KVCC . Somehow,  everybody wore red white and blue.  12x24in oil

I'd like to share some good news. Yesterday the pastel of my friend, artist Gina Pierleoni, won an award in the "Works On Paper" show at the mfa Circle Gallery in Annapolis. It was a Nationally juried show curated by Mary Lee Corlett of the National Gallery and out of 700 entries two! of my paintings were chosen. Gina ,covered in her handmade sewn and beaded dolls, won an Honorable Mention. Thank you Gina for posing for me with all of your creations. It really gave me the opportunity to have fun with color and texture.
