WInter has forgotten to pack her bags and move out this year. We had one Nor’Easter after another, lots of wind, snow and icy conditions and Spring teased us all for one day and disappeared again. But I am dreaming of warmer weather and summer delights:
In the studio I have finally gotten the time to make something happen and I am headed in a new direction for the moment. During my West Coast trip last autumn, I have begun a series inspired by my nephew’s prints and the Japanese woodblock influences I saw in works on my travels. The new direction is a real change of pace for me, and I have not abandoned my signature style, just dipping my toes in some new waters for a change of pace. Here are a few of the new ones.
So far 2018 has been good for me. A shout out to Jersey Shore Magazine for picking up another one of my paintings in their Spring issue; Noyes Art Garage, for inviting me to take part in their Second Friday event on April 13th in Atlantic City, and I’ve been notified that Artsy Shark will be displaying some of my work online in the near future.
I am gearing up for the summer shows. I’ve been accepted into the Absecon APAC show, the LBI Studio Tour, the Viking Village shows, and expect to be at Harvey Cedars in July. As time allows I will also try to hit Brigantine Art Walk again. Schedule coming soon.
I will also teaching oil painting at Pine Shores Art Association and the Long Beach Island Foundation in Loveladies this summer, so things look like they are warming up after all.
