Latest Work

Monday, January 9th, 2017

For the last few weeks I have been working on a painting using a new type of canvas (to me) made of Belgian linen. It is incredibly smooth, and the paint glides on and blends beautifully. So I chose a palette and began to see what emerged. Two nights ago, I dreamt that I was […]

New Work

Thursday, December 1st, 2016

The last painting had a water theme. This one ended up feeling like what an experience in a desert would be if one were on very hallucinatory drugs. Psychedelic Desert / 18″ x 24″ canvas with acrylic

Grief

Wednesday, November 9th, 2016

Everything I tried to create this morning went wrong. I couldn’t step into flow. I was agitated and disgusted with election results. A couple of snarky comments on my Facebook feed by two “friends” didn’t help. Their candidate won, and they showed no attempt to understand why I took the loss so deeply. I try […]

More Autumn Fun

Friday, November 4th, 2016

In this piece I was experimenting with new materials: gel medium, collage, iridescent paint. I was aiming for a feeling of layering and translucence. It was difficult to create and to photograph! Something didn’t feel right about it, and still doesn’t. But it came through me, and whether I like it or not, someone else […]

Almost All Squared

Wednesday, October 26th, 2016

Two of the last three paintings have been done on 10″ x 10″ canvas. Very different energies. One painting started one way and took an entirely different direction. The other unveiled itself entirely at the beginning. The third painting is tiny, and it too was conceived whole. All are available for purchase. After the Storm […]

I Am a Nasty Woman

Thursday, October 20th, 2016

Donald Trump called Hillary Clinton “such a nasty woman” in the last debate, and with that, women rose up to embrace what he meant as an insult. In fact, calling her a “nasty woman” is just a shade cleaner and more acceptable than saying what he probably thought: cunt. When men feel viscerally threatened and […]
