I just completed another painting for the group exhibit
titled Cats vs. Dogs 

This exhibit is currently being held at The Vendue in Charleston SC.  A portion of all sales from the exhibit will be donated to the Charleston Animal Society and The Vendue will match the donation dollar for dollar.

My new painting Doggy features a little boy pointing out a dog hanging in the National Gallery of Art DC.  To the left is A King Charles Spaniel, to the right Tama, the Japanese Dog, both by Edouard Manet.

"Morning Joe"

9 x 12"
oil on panel

Fresh off the easel, a woman viewing, and seemingly longing for her younger days and a cup of joe, Richard Diebenkorn's Coffee in the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.

My mom was a painter.  She favored artists such as Picasso, Matisse, Modigliani and especially Diebenkorn - she had dozens of his paintings' images pinned on the wall as her inspiration.  She leaned more towards Diebenkorn's figurative works that commonly blended with abstraction.  That was my mom's signature style with still lifes and figurative paintings.  

Me, I love everything Diebenkorn painted.  His early Abstract Expressionism works, his figurative pieces done in the mid-50's and his return to Abstraction in the mid-60's with works such as his Ocean Park series. Most of all, it's color that draws me to Diebenkorn, no matter the style.

The new painting was to be included in the Shain Gallery's  Small Works Show coming up, but it sold on the day it arrived.  Yay.
