Two upcoming shows / summer of 2014

I’ve been asleep at the blog-post but have two venues/ no, three!/ in Vermont to see my work.


I was asked to participate in an annual event/hanging at Penny Cluse – a restaurant on Cherry St.

in Burlington.  Each year, artists are given a 6″x 6″ wooden panel on which to “evoke” a theme

determined by the curators. This year, the subject is “PLAY” – defined as the artist wants.  (The

dates of the show are June 6- July 20. Purchases come off the wall and go to your home when

you buy it.) After many false starts, I realized (mid-winter) that all I wanted to do was play at the beach…so, my

panel has sand-like grit and a red pail and shovel. I am hoping to be at the beach in a few months.


Once again, I entered a juryed competition for the Green Mountain Watercolor Exhibition at

the Red Barn Gallery @Lareau Farm Inn, Rt.100, Waitsfield. I was delighted to have an image accepted

and the opportunity to hang 2 other pieces in the “small paintings” section – these are companion pieces to

“Sophia” – in the main gallery. The gallery destination is a lovely ride into central Vermont – and cows have

not been in the barn for (at least) a few years! This exhibit is up from June 29 – July 26.


The third venue is at Big Picture Framing at the Blue Mall, Dorset St. in So. Burlington. The owner, James Regan,

has been generous with his wall and shelving space for several artists. There are several acrylic paintings of mine –

waiting for a buyer and a frame. That venue is an ongoing space.


AS for looking at art, I have been to Storm King (a sculpture park that I’ve wanted to see for many years), returned to the

Museum of Fine Art several times to see the Quilts exhibit, John Singer Sargent – again – and the mid-century abstract

artists in their collection. It all reminds me of why I love looking at as well as creating art. I hope that you get to see some

amazing work this summer.

Welcome to my notes on painting. As I work on ideas, I may post images in process or thoughts on museums I have visited.

This web site includes (mostly) paintings created since my move to Vermont in 2000. Before then, I had a studio at the former Waltham Watch Factory in Waltham, MA for 11 years. While there, I produced ceramics, (hand-built and slip-cast), papier mache furniture, monotypes (single image prints) that may show up on this blog from time to time.

From the paintings now on line, I can replicate most in a smaller size, put an image on cups or stationery. Just ask.

For those not used to visiting an art web site, click on the upper right circle to enlarge the painting - and click again to shrink.

Look for my trading cards coming to this space, soon!
