Public Art

Okay, it’s a stretch but I’m counting this as public art.

Is Anyone Out There?

"Is Anyone Out There?" is my first digital painting. As many of you know, I've worked many years in oil and acrylic. I am now dipping my toes in digital painting to see if I like it as a third medium. This was done freehand on Procreate. I wanted to express the isolation and sadness of a deadly pandemic and a world on fire. If you look closely you'll see the houses are marked for plague and the stars have turned blue.

Art Activism

Because of the rioting after the horrific murder of George Floyd many NYC storefronts were boarded up. Artists came out and started painting them. For some reason I find this very hopeful.

Thumbs Up To Jessica DiLorenzo

What a surprise to find that my painting Thumbs Up inspired a happy dance party to help up through the pandemic. The painting bookends the video while inspirational messages are read as it is being shown.
