07/15/2021: Summer Updates
New Work: Raven, 24” x 28”, Collaged paint and paper on canvas, 2021
I have been most negligent about staying current!
Early in 2021 I created another piece for a public art project sponsored by the Munroe Center for the Arts in Lexington. Everyone was given a post to paint as they desired. I carved out some of the corners to make recesses for marble eyes for this Owl Totem. The photo at left shows it’s location in downtown. It now resides in my garden.
The Redux series has continued, but this time as collage! The collaged pieces can be seen on the Redux 2 page. The painting above is on canvas and is on display at Three Stones gallery. I will continue making collages on both paper and canvas.
Below I’ve included a few images of my garden because it is the sole distraction from working in the studio. This year I considered myself a full time gardener. There is an English garden /Japanese influence in my richly planted yard. We have very large koi in our pond.
11/17/2020: Go Out Doors — Lexington!
I was requested to send a proposal to the Lexington Council for the Arts in September for a project to enhance the well-used bike path that connects surrounding towns with Cambridge MA. Old doors were provided and then I started making sketches and then a rough mock-up of my design. I used one of my recent Kitsune pieces as an inspiration and more or less a template.My goal was to provide lots of color with a somewhat whimsical composition the would be able to seen going at a runners’ or cyclists’ pace. I also wanted it to be complex enough to warrant stopping to take a longer look.
Nearby Concord has several doors along a new section of interconnecting bike paths. Lexington and Arlington are considering more come spring 2021.
The doors are installed along the Minuteman Bikeway in Lexington Center, between the Visitor Center and Hancock Street.
