The October issue of The Artful Mind devoted its cover to my painting, The Raven's Gift. Inside this issue is an extensive six-page interview with me - and the editor asked some pretty intriguing questions. Curious? Read the magazine online.
Fine Art Connoisseur Magazine's theme for its November/December issue is "Figures in Costume". Soliloquy was their pick (I do use costumes a LOT in my paintings). The combo of a contemporary tattooed female harlequin, brilliant sunset and pink flamingos must have tipped the scale.
Also coming out this fall, my painting Tempest will be included in the "Outrage" issue of Juniper Rag Magazine, a response to the Supreme Court's Roe decision. Michelle May, the magazine's co-founder, wrote to me: "Our biggest emotional pull was Tempest. It really conveys the feeling of chaos and uncontrollability that is pervasive in our society right now, and with the woman looking up, with light on her face, it illustrates strength and hope. We can’t wait to publish this work."
When asked to submit a piece for the 133rd Annual Exhibition of the National Association of Women Artists it was hard to decide. Cape Light (pictured) has been one of my very favorite works for a long time. It fit the size restriction (30 inches or less, framed) and it's a great example both of where I've been artistically and where I'm going.
The exhibition runs October 14 - 29 at One Art Space, in the street level gallery at 23 Warren Street in Tribeca, in NYC. The opening is October 20 from 6-9pm.
Celebrating my inclusion in these publications, during the month of October the R. Michelson Galleries at 132 Main Street in Northampton, MA will show two of the paintings. Soliloquy is in the front window. The Raven's Gift is on display on the main floor. Come check them out!
If you've read this far, I have a last bit of news! The 24" square painting I've been working on for months, Sky Blue Pink, is finished. This painting has already found a home - the collector saw it half-painted on my easel over the summer and loved it.
I am offering Sky Blue Pink as a limited edition fine art print. The larger size is almost the scale of the original painting, and it's a remarkable piece for $395.
This is a very newsy blog post. A lot came together in a very short period of time, and I was eager to share. There is more on the horizon, and I promise to keep you in the loop.
