This piece evolved from a old piece of canvas I painted on a lark. The acrylic already present on the canvas  worked as a resist. ( 0r was it gel medium ?) I printed a image of a swamp tree, at an upward angle, onto silk organza. This was adhered with medium. I added highlights of oil stick to the raised textured area and finished it with stretcher bar mounting. 
This is a simpler piece yet one gets a sense of composition.
Let me know what you think.

September 2009 News

It was a busy summer. Preparing and showing at the League of New Hampshire’s Sunapee Fair, Newberry NH in August, can be a lot of work. The Fair was up in attendance and sales this year. Always a good thing for an artist. Winter Tree and Rooted in Matter will be in New Bridge on the Charles Hebrew Senior Life Center, Dedham, MA as part of their permanent collection.

Ripples Triptych, a commission by Dana Farber Institute, Boston MA was finally completed for their new building. I’m waiting to hear when the opening will be!

A October Event coming up fairly soon is the Paradise City Exhibit 10/10-12 Northampton MA

I am working hard to finish several new pieces for this popular show. A couple pieces are the result of experimentation. Coming from the inspirations of summer.

Upcoming is a new workshop concept called Studio Pops. It is an open studio workshop where students spontaneously decide the topic. Please contact me if you are interested and we can coordinate a time. Cost $30.00- 10-1 and 2-5

As always I am available for regular workshops, which you can find on my website, or email me

I just joined a professional artists online network and they featured my work! Take a peek-

 I spent some time painting fabric and reviewing my artist journal. I have some great ideas for new work. Continuing to post inspirations and work progress on my blog.

The tree silhouette is wonderful. It makes me think of a haunted forest with fog swirling about. Beautiful.
