Back to Old Favorites

These two watercolors were painted 15-20 years ago! I guess not much has changed.
Notice the blue napkin with green circles?
Another recurring icon in my still lifes is this blue vase, which was hand made by the famous glass artist MICHAEL GLANCY. Don't bother looking for his blogsite or website, he is too big time. You can see a sample of his pieces on www, ARTNET

BLUE NAPKIN 36x24 watercolor

CUT FLOWERS    30x20 watercolor

She is a portrait painter and can be contacted at We went to a way cool POETRY PROJECT at St Marks church commemorating Peter Orlavsky, Alan Ginsburg's partner. The beat generation lives.

The next piece of art I hung out with..a visitor from the west coast, Dr. Einstein

Painting figures isn't my strength and I admire artists who do it with ease. This was a real struggle. The beauty of acrylics is that you can just keep plugging until something OK appears. This is a section of a larger painting
