Finally! My Philly-Themed piece is in a New York City Show

Show & Tell: A unique evening of visual and performing arts

Saturday, October 1 · 7:00pm - 11:00pm

Studio 580
580 8th Avenue, 5th Floor (at 38th Street)
New York, NY

 The LOVE piece will be in the show.  Scroll through the posts if you haven't seen it, or come out to the show! All the food and drink will be pink--should be interesting!  Also--I finished the Bird of Paradise painting on the wall a few weeks ago.  (Except for one little baby stem!) It looks good.  I've gotten a lot of compliments for beautifying the block, and it feels good. I can't wait to see it in the snow. Even the naked bike riders like it!

May- First Friday

I have spent the past two months working on a new body of art experimenting with glitter, varnish, and feathers. I also screwed around with a clear silicone gel to have elements in the painting appear to "float". I showed my work at the open studios in my building (which is a natural success, I don't even have to do any promoting! Yay less work!) the verdict is that people gravitated towards this black painting, which you will see here. I believe I will do a series based on this painting. Next, I would like to do a bunch of large scale floral paintings, and then towards the end of the year I think I will start doing nude female portraits on abstract backgrounds. I guess I will see how it goes once I get my work hung in some local shops in Northern Liberties, but that's my gut instinct at this point.  Also, the LOVE painting is finished after a year of working on it.  I ended up peeling/ ripping the entire bottom half of the painting off the canvas and starting over, but I fixed it in two hours what I had been working on for four months so it worked out just fine.

Loving my new space at Liberty Vintage Motorcycles! We are planning on doing a big party for Trenton Ave Arts Fest/"Judgement Day" on May 21st.
