Poets And Daughters- New painting


Happy New Year!  This is my first painting of the new year.  I decided to work in oils and really enjoyed the process.  Things take a little longer working in oils and I had to be more patient!  
This painting is 16x20 on a gallery wrapped stretched canvas with painted sides.  
Hope you had a great holiday break and I look forward to sharing my new work with you all.

A few of my images were used in a Christmas service L.A. !


The art director from a Unitarian Church in Los Angeles contacted me a few months ago about showing my images as a backdrop to their Christmas service .  He sent me this shot which was before the service began.  I felt honored my work was selected.

What I'm working on


It feels great to be back in my studio today!  Everything feels better when I am painting.  I enjoyed spending time with my son Sam, who will be turning 24 next Saturday.  I can't believe it.  
I am working in oils on this new piece, I like to change it up as you know!  
Hope anyone who reads this had a peaceful and joyfilled break.

Harmony In Red - New work


Completed on 12-13-2017.  I'm so excited to share this new piece.  It's  18x24  on a gallery wrapped stretched canvas with painted sides.  This is my fantasy house complete with an artist's studio.  I just love the reds with gold and the eclectic objects. The kitty always takes the best seat in the house.

What I'm working on


I've been working on a new painting this week.  I just can't bring myself to go shopping yet.  I guess I like the pressure.  I've been enjoying  my process on canvas for a change.  I am also working with new paints that are pretty amazing and  with new special  brushes from my son Max   This piece is starting to take shape.  Stay tuned.
I love my job.

Who Do You Think You Are? New work


Greetings Art Collectors and Friends
Here is my newest painting that I am quite thrilled to be unveiling today.  It is 24x36 which is much larger than I usually work in.  Certainly a statement piece of sorts.  I have always loved Picasso and Matisse and use them as my inspiration.  Here I feel that I've created the best of both worlds.  The brush strokes, shading and vibrance of color are not quite  captured in a photo. 
Thanks for looking and enjoy the Holiday season !

What I'm working on


Going big!  This is a 24x36 canvas I started working on.  I have had this large canvas (not wood)  taking up space in my studio since the summer.  The timing just wasn't right until now.  This is an expressive more abstract piece that I cannot wait to work on each day!
