Mask Study



Mask Study
9x12
Acrylic on Panel

I recently went to New Orleans for the first time and loved it! Of course I had to buy a mask! This is the first still life I've done in awhile. Its great practice and was really enjoyable. I plan on doing a series based on this trip to New Orleans. There are a couple of pictures below of my set up and a process shot.

8x10
Acrylic on Panel

This painting was inspired by an auto rickshaw drive through Marina Beach in Chennai, India. Cows roam freely on the beach and on the roads. We came across this concession stand that appeared to be glowing. Part of the auto rickshaw is shown in the left hand corner.

Mixed media on watercolor post card

I recently broke my toe, so right now it's difficult to get upstairs and work in my studio. I've been experimenting with these watercolor post cards in mixed media. I'm having fun and I'm looking forward to doing more while I recuperate!

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.

Jersey Arcade Process Shot

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.

Turnip And Squash



Turnip And Squash
6"x6"

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