Only a small number of contemporary works were chosen for this exhibit, and I fully appreciate the honor of being chosen.

City Views is a juried group show at the President of the Borough of Manhattan office at 1 Centre Street in New York City. “Blue Umbrella”, my 24″ x 36″ acrylic on canvas was chosen for inclusion in this group show, which is an honor I truly appreciate. The exhibit runs from August 3, 2017 through August 31st.
It is truly a lovely show, the selected paintings demonstrate the very personal way 80 artists from a wide variety of backgrounds and points of view, experience our complex city.
I know it”s August, but try to get there—you will enjoy the show!
In May, I began to use an ancient medium that was completely new to me: Egg Tempera. The technique is very different from my usual acrylic paintings. On a palette, you combine pure powdered pigment with egg yolk and create your paint as you use it.
The paint is applied in overlapping veils of color and the color can be “pure” or by layering different colors, can mix optically. I will post some photos of my egg tempera paintings. I have complete 15 in June and July and I will post photos of some in the near future.
Many modern artists have used egg tempera including Marc Chagall and Andrew Wyeth.
A small acrylic on canvas painting, which is really tiny for my work, it is only 8″x 10″!, has been chosen for inclusion in this show at the Manhattan Borough Presidents Office in January 2017. All of the works are less than 12″x 12″. This is very charming for a big city officials office! If you would like to attend the opening, please conract me privately.
I participated in The Holiday Show in The Phyllis Harriman Mason Gallery, West 57th St, in December 2016, and spent the last weeks in Scotland, enjoying the spectacular, gloomy, foggy Highlands in winter and then touring through the English countryside. It was a trip full of diffuse, gentle light and and an intense, close palette of color in the deep shadows of the woods. It was so different from high/sharp contrast New York City! It helps you to rethink shadows once again. Even the air itself was soft…so moist and misty. Now back into the studio for the new year.
The show at the Vyt is a lovely show! I’m very glad to have my painting included. Thanks again to the friends who came and shared the fun of the opening reception on such a hot summer afternoon.

My recently completed paintings of manikins are a reference to the confining, and yet sometimes unfortunately alluring, aspects of gender roles for women. The manikins are trapped in windows, surrounded by gendered lovely lures. Please look carefully at the one with two manikins titled Eve. actually please look look at all three.
The three manikin paintings are 24 x 36 each and they are acrylic on canvas. I like them as a triptych and singly as well.
I have had a very prolific several months of painting, 14 paintings in 6 months, plus drawing and sketches.
Three of my recent paintings where exhibited in the Art Students League group show in April.
My most recently completed painting is a “Child’s Dream”. It is a child’s mind view of the old beloved doll house, which has been enjoyed, damaged and played with by 3 generations of our family. It will be photographed this week. The family doll house lovers who have seen the painting all want it! A terrific compliment. I will have the painting photographed and look into creating Giclee prints!
I will be painting semi-outdoors for the summer on the large screened porch of my summer home.
