APRIL 2021

So much time has passed since the last time I posted to this site that … really, there’s no question of actually catching up! All I can say is: it’s been a long time and busy all the way. At this moment, nine new paintings of mine are part of a group show at the… read more

Black Partridge & Cat Amongst the Cushions

Black Partridge, 16″x20″ Acrylic with 3D acrylic paint, plus one sequin.   The only time I ever saw a live black partridge was at a great distance, through binoculars, in North India. Something about the bird’s compact, rounded shape appeals to me. Also, the variety I saw (and heard) is famous for its very distinctive… read more

Evolution of a Small Painting
