Paintings and Collages, Hudson Library, 2013

Through the end of 2013, a selection of my paintings and collages will be on display at the Hudson Library in its Watson-Ewell-Currin Art Gallery.

Because my house and studio are small, it’s rare to see so much of my work hanging side-by-side. This is, then, really a treat for me. It always surprises me to see similarities between pieces when they are placed next to each other.

Imaginary Garden 2

Similar to the first Imaginary Garden, but smaller and moodier. Maybe late autumn rather than early autumn, and a thicker tangle of underbrush. See more...
