In my research of meditative spaces I was reminded of a few large interiors I had painted- exploring the emptiness of the spaces that I had previously inhabitated. These paintings are all oil on canvas, 48" x 36"

I thought I would share this great quote from Hans Hofmann "every successful canvas has been painted from the point of view of a student, for a great painter is always a student"

Jan. 27- Feb. 3 Drawing, Seeing and more Drawings......Shadows

This is a summary of my work from last week. I have taken photos of the shadows of trees and cracks in the ground while walking.....here are a few drawings from the shadows.

Weekend Update

I rounded out my week with a trip to Mass Moca and Williams College Art Museum.
I was particularly interested in Jason Middlebrook and Joseph Montgomery's exhibits.  Middlebrook's scuplture entitled "Falling Water was amazing- bringing the outdoors indoors.  Montgomery's later sculptural paintings created a strong presence with a minimalist quality. The echoing of repetitive form is the framework for each piece.
At Williams College a small exhibit of Joan Mitchell and Friends.....
