gallery opening

Gallery show announcement @ Common Space Gallery, Waltham

Announcing a “pop-up” show of new paintings at the Artists West Association (AWA) Common Space Gallery. The opening reception will be Saturday June 16 from 3 -6 PM, and yes, you are invited.

“Leaving La Mancha” is a title derived from the recent sale of a magical home and property in New Mexico we were fortunate to have for 11 years.  With that sale came more emotions and changes than I anticipated. The need to be creative became more important than skillfully rendering objects.

“Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imaginationcircles the world.”  Albert Einstein

“Cubist Village Road” 8″ x 10″ oil on canvas on panel

Abstraction brought me the salvation I was seeking. Synthetic cubism, specifically. The things I like most about painting are much more accessible to me Cubistically than Realistically.  I feel completely free and unbound: patterns, brushwork, the emotions of color, bending space, in general being more concerned with creativity and surprising myself as I go than with skillfully rendering things.

“Blood Iris” 14″ x 11″ oil on canvas

“Don Quixote at Dawn” 10″ x 8″ oil on canvas on panel
