New paintings of Umbria and Strawberry season

Friday, May 29th, 2009

My gardens are fruity- the apple trees still have tiny apples that haven’t yet been decimated by worms or copper rust, the strawberry beds are producing faster than I can pick them. And I’ve been eating asparagus every week since April. The bunnies ate the tops off all of the snowpeas, but left me one […]

Interview with Tom Zarrilli

Saturday, May 23rd, 2009

This is the second in a monthly series of artist interviews. I met the artist Tom Zarrilli during my early years in Atlanta. I knew him from openings at alternative galleries and music clubs like 688 and TV Dinners, where he was the manager. These are now defunct, but at the time were as ubiquitous […]

A couple of new paintings for spring

Tuesday, May 12th, 2009

The colors outside are intoxicating. My current work seems to be more free and less angular, maybe it’s the softness of spring.   The first painting was created from a sketch of my backyard in early morning. Later while painting in the studio I was listening to John Prine‘s ‘My Darlin’ Hometown’, from his most […]

Artist, patron and critical seeing

Saturday, May 9th, 2009

There are many artists in the online shops where I’ve been selling my own paintings, who offer to do commissions. My early background was spent studying and producing portraiture and there was even a stint in the late 1970′s when I traveled to various cities to sketch ‘caricatures’ at sprawling automobile conferences. I couldn’t do […]

May

Wednesday, May 6th, 2009

May here in southeastern PA and the Brandywine Valley is an explosion of Pepto-Bismol pinks, lilacs and acid greens. Even with the deluge of rain we’ve had, the trees are blooming and the birds sing their hearts out. I wanted to title this something French, since I’ve been listening to Jacky Terrasson’s ‘A Paris…’, but […]
