2017 World Rowing Championships

Roy and I at the 2017 World Rowing Championships in front of my billboard for Ecuador. Big thanks to Embracing Our Differences, Benderson Development and the 2017 World Rowing Championships for inviting me to this fabulous event. And the other billboards for the different countries are amazing.

Good Luck To Ecuador

t was very exciting to be requested to do a painting representing Ecuador in the 2017 World Rowing Championships which takes place in Sarasota from September 24 through October 1st. An image of my painting is going to be made into a billboard to be displayed during this event in which 68 countries are taking part. The background of the painting is in the colors of the national flag of Ecuador: yellow, blue and red. These colors also run throughout the painting which is done in a traditional Ecuadorian folk art style mixed with my own style (whatever that is). Ecuador has four distinct regions: the Andes, the Amazon, the Pacific Coast and the Galapagos Islands. Elements from each region are incorporated.

Michael H. Hanson Does It Again

I can’t get over how Michael so beautifully conveys what I’m trying to paint.

Love Conquers Hate

"Love Conquers Hate" in my response to what happened at Pulse in Orlando in June 2016 and after reading that 2016 was the deadliest year on record for the LGBTQ community. The painting takes place in front of Stonewall Inn, site of the 1969 riots that gave birth to the gay rights movement. The ghosts may be filled with bullet holes and blood, but the flowers people are leaving are thick, (actually around 3/8th of an inch thick) and bright to represent how hate will not destroy the human spirit and we will come back stronger and brighter than ever. We must fight hate in all its forms. We must love and care for each other. "Love Conquers Hate" will be featured at the National Association of Women Artists, 128th Annual Members' Exhibition. The show runs from August 22 - September 14, 2017 and is at the Sylvia Wald & Po Kim Art Gallery, 417 Lafayette Street, NYC. The reception is Thursday, August 31th from 6 - 8pm.

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.
