When the shadows starting talking to me and I saw their secrets I began to believe I was an artist.
When the color relationships started melding together I began to believe I was an artist.
When the tip of the charcoal and the color dab of a shape felt as they were connecting my eyes to my fingers I began to believe I was an artist.
And when that inner smile of satisfaction eliminated time I began to believe I was an artist.
If I can share a special place, if you feel the flowers growing or the wind blowing or the stretch of a body then I can believe I am an artist.
Now is the time for full circle blending of my passions of color and texture; travel and painting. My love of textiles and texture is very evident.
Enjoy the Tropics or Tuscany or my dear Mid Hudson Valley. My present medium is oil frequently with unearthed found objects and mixed mediums. I hope you enjoy the story, my story and that it inspires you to create and to travel and to share experiences.
Thank you for letting me share this art form with you.
NOTE: A portion of the proceeds from any art piece that i sell will be donated to the student fund at The High School of Music and Art in NYC of which i am alumni : Class of 1970. The High School of Music and the Performing Arts (M & A) inspires many NYC students who come from the 5 boroughs to get immersed in developing their talents at a high school level. My M & A years were some of the most memorable and inspirational of my life !!
