Nothing more exciting than a new underpainting. As I race to get paintings for the fall show, I’m at my most productive. Deadlines turn the shape of my brain into a pyramid. #oilpainting #underpainting https://www.instagram.com/p/BmeSEOgBXmf/?utm_source=ig_tumblr_share&igshid=cw7hcthg1irb

“The artist sets the face in an oval of sky blue reminiscent of a Victorian era pin or brooch that augments the piece’s sense of restraint. The painting’s primitive style adds an element of flourish and relief. A geometrically complex patchwork garment clings tight against the figure’s chest and neck.“⠀ ⠀ Excerpt review from @andybrumer in Artscene⠀ ⠀ Detail from “Talitha”oil on Linen⠀ #artwords #painting #love⠀ ⠀ UPCOMING EXHIBITION⠀ “Fever Dreams”⠀ Mt SAC⠀ Sept 27- Dec 6, 2018⠀ Reception Sept 30, 4-6⠀
