Silence Is Not Always Golden

Abortion has to remain safe. What’s happening is horrific. These new abortion laws won’t end abortion. They’ll just force women into the hands of butchers. Women must band together. Our voices will not be silenced. We Won’t Shut Up.

Affirmation Is Always Good

Delighted and surprised to see that “I Am Somebody” was used on the reception program cover and other promotional materials for the Violence Transformed exhibit, "Immigration, Migration, Displacement & Community” at Town Common Gallery, Cambridge College. What an unexpected treat

Das Kreuz Der Frauen

I'm very flattered that Dr. Andrea Aschaver used my painting "Destruction" to illustrate her article "The Cross of Women" which is about violence done                                   to women throughout history during wartime. The article is in the Austrian magazine, Panoptica 2019. For those that speak German and are interested here's a link to the magazine. https://www.tirol.gv.at/…/…/Publikationen/Panoptica_2019.pdf

Violence Transformed 2019

Very excited that two of my paintings, "I Am Somebody" and "I Wanna Go Home I CAN'T GO HOME" were selected for "Violence Transformed 2019" April 1-May 3 2019, Town Common Gallery at Cambridge College, 500 Rutherford Avenue, Charlestown, MA. The theme of this exhibit is Immigration and migration, something that's been on my mind for a long time now. Here is "I Am Somebody”

Embracing Our Differences

My billboard “Thumbs Up” at the spectacular Embracing Our Differences exhibit. I’m standing with my beautiful model, Kathy Landis. Kathy and I are giving a big thumbs up to embracing the world and everyone in it. One race-human race. The exhibit is up through March 15 in Bayfront Park, Sarasota, Florida.

The Remarkable Faith Ringgold

Me with one of my favorite artists, the remarkable Faith Ringgold. This was last night at NAWA's 130th Anniversary party. I showed Faith the gushing post I had written about her in my blog not too long ago. If you're not familiar with Faith Ringgold's work you should look her up. Her paintings are in every major NYC museum. And she is such a lovely person to boot.

The Art Of Anger

Fascinating article about and interview with Jim Carrey by Jerry Saltz, Senior Art Critic for New York Magazine, 2018 Pulitzer Prize for Criticism. Carrey is very generous about sharing his process.

Tatsuo Horiuchi

Tatsuo Horiuchi is a 77 year old Japanese artist who uses Microsoft Excel to paint gorgeous works of art. I’m so impressed. And very inspired.

Thumbs Up To EOD

Delighted to announce that I will, once again, be part of the annual Embracing Our Differences exhibit. My painting "Thumbs Up" will be displayed on a 12.5 foot high x 16 foot wide billboard in Sarasota, Florida's Bayfront Park from January 19 through March 15, 2019. This painting is based on one of my favorite couples. In fitting with the theme of Embracing Our Differences I feel this couple exemplifies the belief that by exploring the world we will discover that people all over are, in the words of Maya Angelou, more alike than unalike.
