La Casa de gli Soprano~ The Soprano's Home


SOLD   My latest painting is 16x20 completed on August 18, 2017  .  I've been listening to some beautiful opera these days.  I never appreciated it until a few years ago. I like to imagine this classical interior somewhere in  Rome perhaps. Thanks for looking.   ( There is a little reflection from taking the photo outside today.)

 "Beyond the edge of the world there’s a space where emptiness and substance neatly overlap, where past and future form a continuous, endless loop. And, hovering about, there are signs no one has ever read, chords no one has ever heard."
Haruki Murakami, 
I'll never give up wanting to hear my son's voice.  I think about that all the time.  
I've begun a new piece that is really starting to come together.  I've relaxed my style a bit .  I am less concerned about straight lines and angles and more about color and composition.  It's very exciting .  I suppose I have come full circle with my process.  I am searching for color and pattern, objects and places.

The Lightness Of Being- New Work


SOLD    Completed on 8-4-2017.  This new  piece consists of  the contents inside my head.  Ideas just kept popping into my mind all week as I worked.  I heard that title somewhere a few weeks ago and I thought it would make a great title for my painting.  I used a more painterly approach and with a lot of heart and soul.  My son Max ,who is also a painter,  said to me the other day that when you are excited about what you are painting it shows.  Thanks for looking.  It's 18x24 on a cradled wood panel with painted sides.  No Frame is needed.

The Lightness Of Being


This is the name I have chosen for this next piece.  I feel in a way I have come full circle in my approach and process.  Looking forward to posting the finished art.
