Welcome to Summer!

White Sands Beach, stone lithography, 2012.My work will be included in a number of exhibitions in Connecticut this summer. Hopefully, your schedule will include some leisure time spent browsing in a gallery or enjoying an opening reception.

The Artists of Gallery One and friends present:

For Father's Day

Russian ExitAs a child growing up I could frequently find my father behind  a newspaper. My husband is the same in that regard. Instead of showing your appreciation with a shirt or tie this Father's Day consider a fine art reproduction or an original. Limited edition reproductions are priced from $100 to $200 and my smallest postcard sized original oils are $425. If you are so inclined, for originals please contact the studio for available images and information and remember to allow sufficient time for delivery.

A Note from the Artist

Perfect Pair Cardinals close upThis spring I continued my series of oil still life paintings on newspaper. As I planned a number of the compositions Valentine's Day was approaching, so a number of them are painted on the personal ads of the paper and include related objects. The text on these cropped portions of newspaper are fun to read and the painted objects create an interesting juxtaposition. Unfortunately the text doesn't translate well in a web based format, all the more reason to get out to one of the galleries to see them. I've included a detail image of the piece that I find the most humorous, Perfect Pair - Cardinals, where headings for the ads include "Come Fly With Me", "All Calls Answered", "Very Handsome Catch", and "Country Gal Wanted", among others.

For information about the evolution of this series of work or the materials used please refer to "Studio News Winter/Spring 2013" at the following link.
