Radcliffe College

In the same theme as my larger pieces, I have been continuing with graphite on mylar. This is a painting done with powdered graphite and galkyd medium on mylar. the architectural details are not enhanced in the larger oil paintings, so these seem like a nice balance.

image is 8"x6", the piece framed is 11x14"- graphite on mylar

Two Day Lilies

My neighbor brought me these beautiful lilies and I have watched them open up, one at a time, over the last week. Perfect subjects for a painting!
Amazingly, this painting sold before the email announcing it had time to be sent. I have planned for a series of lily paintings over the next week, so stay tuned for more!

Providence, RI

This is the largest painting I have done in my small studio- 48"x36". I debated whether to put graffiti or tattooing on this piece, but every time I tried, it didn't blend. So this building will stay clear of decoration!

Work in progress

New work- this painting is 48x36". A house in Providence that I took a photo of at my reunion weekend. I am showing the initial layout that I painted in with a wash of gray, and then the beginning of filling in the color.

More to come...

Just returned from my 20 year RISD reunion- and needed to just get paint on a brush and work. This artichoke was at whole foods, and I thought it was beautiful! Hard to paint, but the rhythm kicked in and I feel I caught the feeling of it.

Wish I were 18 again and heading off to freshman year- but maybe if I get the MacDowell fellowship, it will sort of feel like that!

Three Clementines

A new small painting! I am looking for the oranges that still have some nice green leaves attached, but until I find them, I am using clementines.

Park Street Church completed

I am really proud of this painting. I am finally beginning to find techniques that work for me and my vision of what it is I want to express to people.

Park Street Church

This is a work in progress. I have been exploring painting with a looser hand- a less illustrative approach, and I am very excited about it. This is a church in downtown Boston that I shot while walking around the city with my husband and kids. I like the gray sky and cool, rainy feel to this painting, although that day it was warm and sunny! I will post again once I have added the finishing touches.
