I'm excited to be included in an online collection from Fountain Street Gallery in Boston. These collections help highlight my work that is being offered in 1stdibs.com It helps put the work in context with a narrative and allows viewers to enjoy the benefits of seeing one artist's work in relation to another's. Here is a link to the collection.
Sometimes as artists we can feel like our reserves for ideas and inspiration are tapped out. During these times we may feel like we are in a creative desert. I've realized that it is important to replenish our reserves and for me it begins with changing my environment. Spending time in new places fuels my creative spirit. I painted this painting called Desert Moonrise over a year after visiting Taos, New Mexico. I believe it is a conglomeration of my memories of the southwestern parts of The U.S., including New Mexico and Arizona, where I visited many years ago. The painting is not any particular place but an image from my subconscious.
- Through my paintings, I have become attentive to the splendid drama of my everyday world; how light hangs on a tree or building, the movement or stillness of water passing under a bridge, the mystery of a tunnel, a church interior or the grit of a train yard. My work is contemporary but takes cues from painters of the past.
