"Still Life with Blue Vase, Starfruit, and Teapot" included in the Fingerlakes Show at Memorial Art Gallery

     I'm delighted that my Painting "Still Life with Blue Vase and Starfruit" was chosen to be included in the Finger lakes art show at the Memorial Art gallery of The University of Rochester this summer, and in addition, I've been chosen to speak about my work there on the evening of July 30th.   I'm very grateful, excited, and nervous too.

Still Life with Kumquats, Plum and Pear

     I started this painting in a demo I did about 4 weeks ago in my studio and finished it over the next three weeks.  It's 11x14 inches.  If anyone out there is looking for fruit for their still life compositions try kumquats.  These looked the same for the entire three weeks with no sign of decomposition. 
     I've also been putting together a talk about my work to give to some of the students at my sons school.  The last time I gave a talk about my work I used a slide carousel, so it's been a while!
