Hello! I’m close to falling behind deadlines due to bad weather, illness, and all around winter ickiness. Currently staff and educators of Brookline Adult Community Education and the Brookline Arts Center are rearranging schedules to accommodate make up classes due to snow days. I’m trying to wrap two (or three) paintings in the hopes I can submit them into national juried shows at the later part of the season.

My (lack) of works in progress …

The winter months in New England have been brutal and weighing on me physically and mentally. I’ve barely spent more than a few hours a week in the studio. I’ve tried to work from home, but that’s almost never fully successful. I’m determined to finish, “Fireball Jackson”, by the end of the month.

Underpainting for “Passion”, oil on canvas.

“Fireball Jackson”, oil on canvas and mixed media.

It’s been a rush to wrap up the fall semester, prepare for the holidays, pack for a week in Punta Cana while simultaneously plan for the winter term of classes beginning the second week of January! I have some fun stuff planned for youth, teen, and adult, hopefully you can join me! I’ll be updating this in the coming weeks, so please check back!

Happy holidays!
