Overdue Update & Art show at The Gallery Espresso!

I know it has been forever since I have posted anything at all! I have to admit, I was going through a rough period in my life, but, thankfully, I am doing much better!

I have been keeping up with my artwork, and I was happy to have participate in Sulfur Studio’s “Tondo in Toto” Show in April of this year. So what have I been up to? Well, my family and I may be moving in the next few months. There are several places we are looking at, but my aim is to move overseas. I am excited for what is to come, and will update my blog once I know my destination!

Also, you can listen to my recent mini interview with Rob from WRUU in Ssvannah, our local radio station here (The last 4 minutes): https://www.wruu.org/broadcasts/10799/

As the interview pointed out, I am excited to announce that my show “Windows” is up for the month of May. The closing reception is on the 24th from 6 pm to 9 pm.

Grisaille Painting- Still Life

I have not worked in grisaille (black and white) for quite some time, so I decided to do this little practice for my upcoming workshop. Doing this reminds me of the importance of values. I tend to get lost in colors when I am working alla prima.  I will be doing more of these small studies this coming week.

With Lemons: Oil on 12″ x 16″ Panel

Lemons 2019 Watermarked.jpg

I love working on highly textured surfaces. Lots of scraping and laying on of thick paint involved. I enjoy creating a mural-like scene. I guess a part of me thinks back to my upbringing in Bronx, New York. Since I was a child, I was always interested in murals and the textures around me–bricks, cement, and walls. I loved watching the way old buildings decayed to reveal interesting colors and patterns beneath the surface.
