Purchase Information

This still life taught me the power black - as a background color - has to create an atmosphere of mystery in a painting. Blushing Bouquet, is perhaps, the "darkest" still life I've ever painted. Making it, got me through one of the saddest times in my life - the six weeks during which my father passed away from pancreatic cancer. I loved him so much. I still do.

Simplicity and Admiration

Purchase Information

Over the next few days, I will be posting images of work headed for Grenning Gallery next month. They'll be part of a two person show opening on September 22 and running for about a month. If you are in Sag Harbor, NY, during that time, I hope you'll drop by. Curious about the title of this piece? It is taken from the symbolic meaning of a pink rose. The next time you receive one, know that you are being admired and wished simplicity.

It has been months since these beauties were in my garden... but I just got around to having the painting I did photographed, and so I'm posting peonies in December.

Cosmos and Snapdragons in Glass

Purchase Information

This was such an exciting piece to work on. I fell in love with the vase and all the reflected light on it and in it. Snapdragons are like sculpture and so I could pile on the paint. Cosmos, on the other hand, are soft whispers of color and so when painting them, I indulged in the gentle placement of pinks an whites. I love my job.

To Stay or To-Go

Purchase Information

Conca D'Oro, our local pizzeria, has been in business for over 40 years. Word of the restaurant's closing was rumored around town for the past few years, but the official announcement came early this summer. I hear that the new owners are promising to keep the recipes... one can only hope. The look of the business I am sure will change.  So here is my homage to my favorite pizza place and to the wonderful family behind it. They have finally decided "to-go!"

Latham House in Late Spring

Purchase Information

The architecture in the village of Sag Harbor, NY,  is breathtaking and of late, my muse. This is the Latham House, built in 1790. It was designed with a residence above and a commercial story at street level. The structure is typical of a Sag Harbor merchant's house of the Federal Period. Today is stands with so much majesty and continues to grace Main Street.

Pink Peonies in Green

SOLD

This was an exploration of green - a color that is important to master if you are painting florals. I also used the green to help make the complimentary reddish peonies vibrate.
