Bendheim Gallery

I love this event in Greenwich. It’s one of the largest and most exciting festivals ever organized in Fairfield County, the opening is set for Thursday, May 6, from 5:30 – 8pm. The evening launches a truly spectacular show. Entertaining musicians and street performers fill the street. All the art on display is for sale. A complete Map/Guide is available at participating stores and at the Greenwich Arts Council office at 299 Greenwich Avenue. I do have a piece at the Bendheim Gallery titled Desert Rising, 20 x 20″, Acrylic on Canvas (Shown Below). If you are in town it’s such a fun event and the weather is fabulous this time of year!

Additionally, I will be exhibiting artworks at the Tailored Home on 2 Greenwich Ave, Greenwich, CT. I’ll post more about that in the coming weeks.

Beautiful Day

Jumped out of my comfort zone with this vibrant color combination. My intention with this piece was to paint something that lifted my spirit every day in my studio. I hope the joy I felt creating this translates to the view and someday to a forever home. Enjoy each and every day my friend!

“Riches, prestige, everything can be lost. But the happiness in your heart can only be dimmed; it will always be there as long as you live, to make you happy again. Whenever you’re feeling lonely or sad, try going to the loft on a beautiful day and looking outside. Not at the houses and the rooftops, but at the sky. As long as you can look fearlessly at the sky, you’ll know that your pure within and will find happiness once more.” -Anne Frank

There is something about the ever changing ocean that intrigues me enough to try and capture it with paint. Painting titled: “Ebb and Flow”, 36” x 48” sq, DM for details. Be kind, wear a mask 😷, stay safe my friends. 🌈
