Nature is Calling, 30″ x 30″, Painting

The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness. -John Muir

I have a deep appreciation and connection to nature. Daily, I step outside of my studio to listen to the sounds the trees make and the songs the birds sing. This is one of many conscious choices I make to stay grounded and in the present moment. This piece titled “Nature is Calling” is 30″ x 30″, Acrylic Paint on Canvas.

Heading Home, 36″ x  36″  Painting

I’m constantly in a state of experimentation that feels exciting yet vulnerable at times. With this painting “Heading Home”, I played around with the perspective to create more depth. Loving the end result.

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.

Put more love out into the world! Works on Paper

Put more love out into the world! Works on Paper

Sometimes the imperfect is perfect. I love the idea of using overlapping lines and forms while experimenting with mixed media materials. You may also notice that text is another element added to this artwork. I am a firm believer that the energy we put out in the world, we receive back. With that in mind, I am working on this series that uses vibrational / positive text. Wouldn’t it be awesome if we all put a little more love out into the world?
