It helps that I’m curating the shows at Purume Gallery – I am able to put my own work into exhibitions whenever I can. So, the truth is out! The next show which we will be hanging tomorrow features four of us who paint our hometown with great affection and energy. Except for Little Owl Cafe, which is a restaurant in the West Village, the rest of my paintings will be Brooklyn views. The other three artists will have paintings of Coney Island and Manhattan. My friend Ticia’s paintings are almost exclusively of Greenwich Village views. This exhibit is likely to be popular. Hope you’ll stop by!

One of my New Year’s resolutions this year is to play with other media and use materials I have stockpiled, but not used over the years. Watercolor painting is one of them!  Inspired by the abundance of snow we’ve already gotten in Brooklyn this winter, here are some of my latest playthings….

"My Turn to Sled", watercolor, 6"x9"

 

"Building Snowmen", watercolor, 6"x9"

"Uphill", watercolor, 6"x9"

I have a couple of more scenes in mind. In the mean time, let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

It’s been quite a long time since I last posted. A busy home-project filled winter distracted me from my studio and artwork. The burst of warm weather a few weeks ago drew me outdoors, first to Manhattan:

Tompkins Square Park

Then, I thought, why waste all that time and energy schlepping to Manhattan when I have Prospect Park blooming like crazy just a few blocks away?!

Pink Spring in Prospect Park

And, then I got more ambitious and got out my Julian easel when I drove by a beautiful enclosed garden at a church in Park Slope. The peaceful air, the blowsy flowers, and sense of being somewhere else was irresistible:
