NEW! Works in Progress

I promised I would give a preview of the new stuff I am working on for the High Fliers Art Market on October 8th in Brant Beach. Here are some of the new oils in progress. I am putting more than one in on the progress where I have them to show. (Sometimes I forget to take photos of my WIPs.)

I love doing these sea creatures. Got a favorite? Let me know.



Studio Yu


My friend, Jenny Yu is an artist, art lover, and entrepreneur. Her cooperative art site is a wonderful and novel way of connecting with artists and purchasing art in an entirely new way. I was fortunate enough to be chosen for Studio Yu and the image you see here is the painting chosen to represent me on their website.

This painting depicts a wonderful canal town in Southeastern China called Zhouzhuang.

Please check out Studio Yu, and “stay tuned for updates”.  🙂

I’m working…

The trouble with many passions is that you only have 24 hours in a day. I have not been in the studio for a week or so. My writing muse has been feeling ignored, and I have been trying to placate her.

I did spend the entire day in the art studio today and promise there will be a number of new additions posted very soon.

I will also have some photos from the Zentinels hanging in Lacey and the Little Egg Harbor library reception which is tomorrow evening at 7 PM.

If you are in the area, please stop in. There are some wonderful paintings in this group show!

September at Lacey, LEH Libraries


Zentinel series to Lacey Branch, Ocean County Library. I will also have six works, some new, in Little Egg Harbor Library.

Took a terrific class at Pine Shores this week with Linda Ramsey. Brought the fun back into painting for me–all big brushes and loose, free work.

I promise to post some photos later this week–here’s a teaser: they are sea creatures, including some from shots I took a couple of years ago in Ocean Park in Hong Kong.

This might be the birth of a new series for me! 🙂

Poetry & Painting / Barnegat Library

On Monday, August 8th, the LBI Poetry and Painting Exhibition will host a reception from 6 to 8 PM at the Surf City  branch of the Ocean County library. I have two paintings in this exhibition, one done expressly for a poetry entry.

My main collection is moving to Barnegat Library for the months of July and August. Be sure to stop in and check out the display. I also have a few pieces displayed at Stafford Library in July as part of the Pine Shores Art Association group hanging.

Coming in September, the Zentinels will be on display at Forked River in the Lacey Township Library. More information to follow.
