15 Egg Tempera paintings!
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.

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.
Holiday Show 2016 and Scotland
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.
