My Clothes Are Not Permission

Pride And Joy

Mysticism, Magic, Superstition and Me

Well, I just came home to the most amazing treat. My painting "The Future Is What We Say It Is" on the cover of the German Journal "Leidfaden". The theme of this issue is mysticism, magic and superstition. It was so kind of the publisher, Vandenhoecke & Ruprecht, to mail me a copy. Now if I could only read the article.

The Fantastical Faith Ringgold

Two of Faith Ringgold’s works from the “An Incomplete History of Protest: Selections from the Whitney’s Collection” exhibit at the Whitney Museum of American Art. I’m amazed that I’m a sister member of NAWA with Ms. Ringgold. Her work is always current, always beautiful, always relevant and always important.

Aretha Franklin, RIP03/25/1942 - 08/16/2018

NYC City artists honor music legend Aretha Franklin with a tribute at the Franklin Street subway station. This will be taken down but nothing magical lasts forever.




More Michael H. Hanson

I’m so flattered by the way that Michael interprets my paintings. And he’s spot on. For more about this fantastic poet and author go to:

Michael H. Hanson, I’m a Fan

The Incredible poet, Michael H. Hanson, has written these fantastic poems inspired by some of my paintings.

Silver Sage Magazine and Mom

I'm delighted that Silver Sage Magazine is using "I Was Really Something" in an article about a daughter losing her mother to Alzheimer's. This painting is about my sparkling mother, Celia Carlin, who died from Alzheimer's. The publisher who contacted me didn't know it actually was a daughter painting her mother dying from the disease until I told her.

Kudos to Gerhard Richter

Gerhard Richter is donating some of his art to help finance the construction of 100 homes for homeless people in Germany. His donation is expected to bring in over 1 million euros. I love artists who are making a difference in the world. Plus, he’s such a fabulous artist. It’s a win for everyone.

The Artist’s Voice Lives On

By popular demand the Harriet Tubman House has extended the "Violence Transformed: STAND UP (The Artist's Voice)" exhibit through September 11, 2018. For anyone in the area I have a painting in this wonderful exhibit. The Harriet Tubman House is at 566 Columbus Avenue, Boston, MA.

UPDATE: The last day of the exhibit has been changed to September 4th, 2018.
