Ginger, one of two dogs on my floor, Bob’s dog, passed away recently from cancer. Sweet disposition and wonderful companion to Bob. Bob’s a walker and I know Ginger did not lack for circulation. I miss her. Did this for Bob. I’ve been doing names on laminate this year. It’s a sturdy surface and here, […]
These are all slender silhouettes. Why? Because I had a great piece of clear vinyl acetate and wanted to make the most of it. The pencil came first. What else could fit in a small strip? A pineapple on a classic column, a smile inducing toothbrush and a test tube showing life. They’re painted using […]
Alp is the second offspring of Victoria and Engin. His older brother, Mehmet, got his own named piece as a gift for turning one year old. It’s my way of celebrating their entrance on earth. Smart and loving parents and now a second young son. Inspiring was their holiday card and the four of them […]
Tied in togetherness, bound in union, the indivisibility of our being is at the center of this piece. UNION floats centered within a fully transparent canvas. It joins human and earth, sky and form. It is a relishable joy to see up close. It’s adorned with a rich dimensional surface including leaves and tiny reflective silver […]
This portrait came to be through the imagination of Nikki whose friends Kathy and Cliff are the lucky companions of Bianca. A Spinone Italiano, Bianca was a pleasure to photograph and a joy to paint. Commissioned with the thought of being a gift given at Thanksgiving, all went perfectly on schedule. In this piece I see […]
I love the motion in this piece, the bubbles that trail the red, it’s mass. RED AQUATIC is painted on both sides of a clear canvas and has a dimensional surface, great for catching light and offering shadows. 2009 Acrylic and mixed medium on acetate 18 x 23 inches From the collection of Elaine […]
Part fireworks, part burst of sheer exuberance, this piece determined itself. It was created free-formed, unhindered by straight edges. 12″x 24″, BRILLIANCE, 2004, is painted with acrylics and mixed medium on clear acetate mounted on wood.
Mehmet’s 1st Anniversary, 2017, was painted in celebration of Victoria and Engin’s boy at the one year anniversary of his birth. It is painted on clear canvas acetate using acrylics and mixed medium. I painted the crown, sun and olive branch, the red dot, the underline. They are the details that I drew on first impulse […]
I made this for a friend who just moved into a new place. Rather than bring her flowers I painted a housewarming bouquet instead. Floral Susan has red, white, and blue main flowers which reference her father who was a United States Congressman for many years (serving from the Great State of New York) and who recently died. It’s a versatile piece painted on clear canvas, […]
This was painted on both sides of a clear canvas. Black and White and Hairy All Over 2006 Acrylics and mixed medium on acetate. 80 x 20 inches I used myself as the template for the figure, tracing myself head to toe. It’s painted on a clear canvas and is weighted by five mirrored ovals at it’s bottom. Look […]
Here a needle rises. Through it’s eye five ribbons thread intertwining into a single pointed nib. A young man holds aloft a scroll upon which the nib has scribed. A red dot, symbolic of the blood spot of creation, is evident and although small, prominent. Tip The Universe 2009 Acrylic and mixed medium on acetate 18 x […]
Details, details, oh the pleasure of details. Like much of my work the dimensionality of the surface is lush. To help you see it… it’s a man leaning on his forearm against the branch of a tree.
This floral is painted on clear canvas, both sides, using dimensional acrylics and mixed medium. There’s a lot of rich surface joy in this piece, lots of depth.
This is another of my paintings with a question as a title. Questions are a pattern with me. Here I’m whispering about the acceptability of male conversation and what’s natural for males and their biologic selves. What is? And what are our patterns? What have we learned? Often for me it’s the sheer asking of questions that requires […]
This floral is definitely on stage, a performance piece, curtain and all. It’s adorned and has dimensional surface.
