Here I enjoyed arranging the various vegetables, juxtaposing shape, color, value and texture to create the harmony I sought.
Not a masterpiece…but…
I did this little piece in an amazingly quiet village north of Tuscanny in Italy. I was sitting on the steps of an alleyway behind the medieval church and trying to focus on issues of light and shade, compostion etc. I feel it’s only fair to say that the cute cat who kept rubbing against me and purring as I was trying to paint should take some of the blame for the results.

Into the distance
Sometimes I enjoy playing with forms that are almost silouettes.
Learning is Fun
Here are two exercises I just completed in class with teacher Beni Gassenbauer on the topic of reflective silver surfaces.
What color is silver really?
How do I portray it in both a realistic and inspiring way?
(Hint: it doesn’t matter what color the silver is, but rather what is going on all around it.)
Off and Running
With a sense of joy and gratitude my new web site was launched today.
Special thanks to Avi Greenstein for designing and creating the site.
I look forward to nurturing it as I continue to grow as an artist.
