Oil on canvas
Delivered this painting to the National Arts Club in Gramercy Park this morning for the 119th Annual Exhibition of the Catharine Lorillared Wolfe Art Club. The work in this exhibit is always a pleasure to view. There are so many talented artists participating. The exhibit runs from December 1-15 at the National Arts Club, 15 Gramercy Park South, New York, NY 10003. (212) 475-3424. If you would like to stop by to see the show, it is a good idea to call ahead to be sure the exhibit will be open. As the work is on display in the ballroom of this former mansion, other programs take place regularly. For more information go to www.clwac.org
Note: Just received notification that my painting has received the Jamie Dworman Award. Always nice news.

A nice article about my work as a long time Long Island City artist as well as my recent endeavors as a quilter.

I've been busy painting and spend many happy hours as a quilter these days as well. It has been very rewarding to work in these different mediums and the ideas just keep coming.

Oil on canvas
Just completed this painting of some of the reflections that I saw on the Freedom Tower's facade. So much construction going on and so many of the new structures are encased in glass. I started blocking in this painting on 9/11 of this year, as it felt appropriate to do so, my way of remembering that fateful day. This painting is very abstract, for me at least, yet one can glimpse the ongoing construction which is a testament that this area of Manhattan has risen from the ashes and continues to change and evolve.
