This is my painting "Light Above" projected on a 25 story building near the Citi Bank building in Long Island City. I was pretty nervous so none of the photos really came out. My husband, Jack got this one which was the best of the lot. There was also a gallery component and the piece was shown on a large flat screen TV. It was all digital and no worries of shipping and handling. It may be the wave of the future. I was just happy to participate.
It has been awhile since I posted anything, please excuse. I have trying to balance the family/work/art dynamic like so many of us. I have been attempting to find some place in between: light and dark, family and self, hot and cold, earth and sky.
I have been working on a new series called Sky Sea. You are not sure where the sea ends and the sky begins or may be it is just a part of a wave? I am using a light molding paste that is quite fun to work with–it’s almost the consistency of butter cream frosting. The series is all quite small with each panel being 5 x 7 inches. You can hang them in a vertical or horizontal row or by themselves.
Here is a glimpse of what is happening underneath that still surface.
14 x 20 inches
This is another commission for someone who has had a very trying year, to say the least. I wanted him to having something to look at on those tough days to show there is light on the horizon even admist the darkness.
This painting was a bit of a departure for me since it was for someone specifically in mind and is a landscape. I painted this for my friend Jennifer S. and thankfully she likes it. We have been through a lot together, living in both Paris and Southie together and many places in between. She has always be extremely supportive of me in the many walks of life. I wanted her to have something she could look at and see the infinite possibilities of her talent.
Do you remember when you were a kid and would dive to the bottom of the pool and look up? I wanted to remember the feeling of being suspended, the light and the silence.
