This artwork of mine is from an uncertain period of my life and reflects how, at the time, I was looking into myself and deciding where my life was taking me, what journey I was thinking of embarking upon. The concentrated gazing at my personal self, the potential for missteps and danger in those decisions I was contemplating are all the forces behind this work.

Two of my artworks that were juried into this show were different approaches in technique and in the subject matter. These little boys in the “Beach Boys” painting are my grandsons although they are now 21 and 16. But they still love the beach.

Juried Exhibition Celebrating the Wildlife of Long Island.
This in-person live show is being held in the quaint harbor village of Northport on the North Shore of Long Island.
This area is surrounded by the waters of the Long Island Sound with its abundant marine and avian populations. Incredible views along the shorelines invite quiet meditation of our natural environments. In this quiet, you can hear the buzzing of bees pollinating the gardens rimming our coastline.
As an artist member of the Artists2artists Social Network, I posted some of my work in their online gallery.
Their resident curator, Kristen T Woodward* saw my work and wrote about it. She has allowed me to share her review.
Here is her review of my work:
It was a joy to discover your series of large-scale flower paintings on view this morning. Subtle Exuberance- Tree Peony held my attention the longest, with it’s delicately curling petals, and contrasts of value. The lower chroma hues within the areas of shadow- variations of brown and muted violets, are a surprising color scheme in the giant bloom. The colors beautifully contrast with the complementary yellow center’s delicate stamens, which provides striking textural variation against the smooth petals. The abstraction of the flowers presented in large format grants them an otherworldly quality. I find the peony works, including Worth the Wait are particularly effective in their restraint of color. Thank you for sharing your work. I look forward to viewing more over time.
