Look What Michael H. Hanson Did

The brilliant poet Michael H. Hanson has written poem  inspired by a few of my paintings, “Destruction”, "Evidence 3” and “Be Kind 5”. I'm flattered and floored by this.

Not Yet/Not Ever….i hope

We artists have to keep infusing our work with meaning and the human experience. There's no way to replace our humanity.

Unexpected Treat

Embracing Our Differences arranged for busloads of school kids to see the Embracing Our Differences billboards.  These adorable kids are writing in books with images of all 45 billboards. Next to the images are the words, "What does this artwork mean to you?" I would love to see what they wrote.

We Must Be Determined

Very happy that my painting "Determined" has been selected for the "Envisioning New Pathways" exhibit at The Gallery at Eissey Campus, Palm Beach State College, May 16th - August 30th. There's a lot going on in "Determined" and it's hard to see it all in a photograph. In the painting, a sad woman on crutches, broken into so many pieces you can see through her, makes her way through a run down street held together by bandages. (Actually, they are real bandages that I put on the canvas and painted.) On one of the buildings behind the woman is graffiti of a broken heart. Bits of broken casts are flung everywhere. But the woman is not giving up. She is still walking. She is determined. A metaphor for our challenging times. For anyone nearby and interested The Gallery is 3160 PGA Blvd., Palm Beach Gardens, FL and the reception is May 16th, 5pm - 8pm. 


Extra, Extra, Read All About It

Very nice interview with me by Marty Fugate in the Herald Tribune about my work in this year’s Embracing Our Differences exhibit.

I just got back from Sarasota and the exhibit is fantastic. Such an important organization. Roy and me in front of the "Kindness Matters” billboard and a picture from the Herald Tribune of the installation.

Art can change the world. At least it should try. This in NYC store windows.

Kindness Matters

I'm super excited to announce that my painting "Kindness Matters" was selected for this year's "Embracing Our Differences 2017" exhibit in Sarasota, Florida. An image of the painting will be made into a 16 foot wide by 12.5 foot high billboard which will be displayed in Sarasota, Florida's Island Park from April 1 - May 31, 2017. I've decided to not only perform an act of kindness a day but to also paint a series of paintings promoting kindness in order to combat all the meanness. My kind Facebook friends, let's all spread kindness.

Carole Richard Kaufmann

My friend and fellow NAWA member, Carole Richard Kaufmann, created the boldest, baddest "Women’s Rights are Human Rights" poster. I’ve already seen it at several protests.
