The Tiny Dancer-SOLD

This was a small (10x10) oil on linen from 2004 or 2005. I was really into this blue at the time. I believe the base color was smalt. Not a color you would see everyday. It is an historic color that was used in past centuries. I get some really great historic paint colors from a paintmaker in Brooklyn, Robert Doak is his name. He makes some incredible paints!

"Girl Stuff"-SOLD from 2002

Still working on commissions. This piece , "Girl Stuff", is somewhere in the southern US now and was painted in 2002. I love still life and do not do enough of them. I have always enjoyed working from this angle.

I have been very fortunate to be able to support myself with only the "brush" now, for the past 11 years. It is truly wonderful to be able to do what you love. There are a lot of trade offs to be able to do this (dogs instead of kids), a 1200 square foot home instead of a 5000 square foot house (that is considered average size for new homes in NJ)! Hey, I'd live in a yurt if I had to, just as long as I can get through this life painting!

Laid Back-SOLD

I am busy with commission work and thought I would post some older pieces that I have never shown before on the web or in the galleries I have been affiliated with over the years.
This was a commissioned piece I did about 3 or 4 years ago titled "Laid Back". This was a large oil on linen about five or six feet long.
