женщина в беседке

Which translates roughly to "woman in arbor." This is a collage of two paintings which I made into a giclée. The image is 30" x 30" on Hahnemuhle paper.

We Miss You Randy

Randy Kentfield
November 26, 1952 - June 20, 1989

Life hasn't been the same, and nowhere near as funny. We still idolize you, marvel at your brilliance, and think of you everyday. Yes, you were right - reflection is not as painful as it was, but the void has never been filled, and never will be.

By a departing light
We see acuter, quite
Than by a wick that stays.
There's something in the flight
That clarifies the sight
And decks the rays.

-Emily Dickinson

Kanji #1

Kanji #1 - 24" x 56"

I'm still intrigued with the Japanese and Chinese characters, this time distorted to fit into a horizontal format. All whites are the paper, Da Vinci on Fabriano 140# hot press.

Framed 28" x 60" - sorry for the reflections

Thanks to everyone who participated in the workshop at VisArts in Rockville! I think I'll be doing more there in the fall and next spring, details here and on my website when available.

Economic Crisis?

Even though I don't have to buy paint anymore, I still hate to waste a single drop. I've been cutting tubes and bottles open for years, and when Da Vinci Paint learned that...well, see for yourself. Best artist quality colors, and they blow everyone away on price!

I have a 3-day workshop starting tomorrow at the gorgeous new VisArts center in Rockville, and Da Vinci is once again giving free samples of their fabulous fluid acrylic to everyone. Thanks Marcello!
