Madonna And Child



  Madonna And Child
24"x39"
Acrylic on panel


I just completed this painting inspired by a shrine I saw in Chennai, India. It's the first large painting I've done in a long time, and somehow, for the most part, painted itself. I love it when that happens! I think it's interesting that Madonna is wearing a sari and Indian jewelry, while holding a rosary. There are so many beautiful temples and shrines in India, but this one I found striking, because of the contrast and bright colors, plus I've always been drawn to catholic imagery. I was raised Jewish, but my father was Catholic, and my husband is Hindu.

Jersey Arcade



Jersey Arcade 
9"x7"

Here is the Arcade painting finished. I included two process shots below. I really enjoyed making this painting. I was working on a much larger fair piece and was feeling a bit stuck..needed to loosen up and do something different..take a break. Coming back to the larger painting now, it's fresher..lots of problems I can resolve that I never saw before.

Here is a process shot of the Jersey Shore...Had so much fun there...really enjoying this painting. My favorite part so far are the lights in the arcade sign..feel like they're starting to glow and bring the whole piece together.

I found this chayote squash and turnip while browsing around the grocery store...I love the juxtaposition of shapes and the green and purple.

Three Mushrooms Two Hour Study



Three Mushrooms Two Hour Study
6"x6"

I love painting mushrooms and haven't done it in awhile..I thought the three of these looked really cute together. You have to paint mushrooms fast because they rot so quickly..thought they would be perfect for a study.
