She was in a great love. But the man she loved was far away and it seemed to her almost impossible to fulfill her longing. She wondered, did he think of her each morning when he awoke? Did he miss her kisses? When would she see him again?

I like wine and good food, so this painting is a homage to good restaurants which make real food. This canvas has been many paintings, all of which I found boring or not quite right. I like it now, especially with the addition of the inclusions.

 

44 x 30 x 1.5, acrylics, pumice, gels, house paints, and inclusions.





The Audience is the new title for this painting --- it was 34 people with Dental Benefits, because as we know, some people have dental benefits and some don't. Hanging on the living room wall, looking at it each day, it seemed this group of folks with their grimaces and stares may be sitting in an auditorium or theater, watching a play or listening to slam poetry.

30 x 30 x 1.5, acrylics, oil paint sticks, oil pens. Painted on all edges.

 





The house was warm. The kitty cats were fat and well-fed. A good book was sitting on the counter next to the bed.

White Door, 30 x 30 x 1.5, acrylics, pumice, gels, latex house paint, and kilz.

 





My piece, Exhale, has been selected to be part of a juried art show at the Blue Mountain Art Gallery in the Chelsea Arts District in New York City. The show will run from December 23 to January 24. I am jazzed and way happy to be part of this show.


Exhale. The party was boring. The hosts were dopes. The food was catered by Taco Bell. As she lights her cigarette, she takes a drag, exhales, and asks, "I dressed up for this?"
