Apple Tree in bloom

Tuesday, April 28th, 2009

Everything outside is pink, white and acid green. I planted two apple trees 3 years ago and the Liberty has done well. I hope to get at least a dozen apples this year. In bloom, it’s like a new baby.  Apple Tree, oil on canvas board, 14″x11″ 2009

UCTV – Philip Glass in conversation

Sunday, April 26th, 2009

UCTV out of Berkeley, CA has some of the best cultural programming you’ll find on television. Here’s a wonderful hour talk with the composer Philip Glass and the music critic Tim Page. In the mid ’60’s Glass studied in Paris with my own piano teacher’s famous teacher, Nadia Boulanger. She evidently never revealed what she […]

New painting and Verlaine

Friday, April 24th, 2009

My friend Phil, who lives outside Paris with his lovely wife Sally- and is a savant about art, poetry and music – said that my newest work reminded him of a Verlaine poem. Now knowing that Paul Verlaine was one of those flowery Symbolists, I wasn’t quite sure how to react. But after thinking it […]

We had a great turnout of interns from Blooming Glen and Sankanac Farms and one interested future farmer for our first SAITA workshop at North Slope in Lambertville, NJ.

Painting to Mary Lou Williams, watching Marshall Ganz

Friday, April 17th, 2009

This was once a failed painting, obliterated and now returned to life. Inspiration is spring and Atlanta born Mary Lou Williams’ 1974 ‘Zoning’ CD, on which are two pieces from her ‘Music for Peace’ mass, later called ‘Mary Lou’s Mass’. She’s a jazz pianist to rival none. Medi I, homage to ML Williams. Oil on canvas 22″x30″. […]

While the south was having tornadoes, we had our first thunderstorm last week. Always inspiring. Spring is bringing with its new blooms a burst of creativity.  Storm over Lancaster Avenue, 16″x20″, canvas on board

New work

Saturday, April 11th, 2009

I’ve been wanting to do more large abstracts after many months of smaller works. Here’s the latest.  April 22″x30″ oil on canvas board I’m reading Irving Sandler’s 1970 ‘The Triumph of American Painting, a History of Abstract Expressionism’, in which he tells us about artists who took jobs with the Federal Art Project, a spin-off of […]

The owls of spring

Thursday, April 9th, 2009

So a couple of nights ago two Great Horned Owls were hooting at each other in the wild bramble of trees and border along the edge of my backyard, and woke me up. It’s the kind of noise that somehow always makes me not only happy, but ecstatic to be hearing a part of nature […]

The Obama administration has launched a competition for designers to fix the country’s problems. That’s right, designers. So here’s your chance to stop saying that nobody appreciates that infinitesimal kerning you made to three word copy the other day. Go to the link and read the brief. Competition submissions are due on April 29, 2009, […]

Woodstock – exercise your memory

Sunday, April 5th, 2009

An Italian friend of mine put up a Woodstock clip on Facebook, this one is Richie Havens singing ‘Freedom’, opening the festival. It still moves me, 40 years later. All of you alumni of Woodstock, think back to 1969….if you can. Bethel Woods Center for the Arts sits on the original site and celebrates the […]
