Great pop-up show at 3S Artspace in Portsmouth, NH, Oct.7 & 8. The show featured four alumni from NHIA and their mentors and proposed a dialog of artworks speaking throughout the gallery space. I was pleased to have an opportunity to show another iteration of my thesis installation. I've been thinking of ways to expand on this installation and have an idea I'm anxious to act on.

Well attended opening reception for my show with Terry Ekesala at the Gallery at WREN in Bethlehem, NH. It will be there until the end of the month, so if you didn't make the opening, check it out! The combination of abstract and figurative landscape paintings and sculptures created a truly "reimagined landscape".

It's been a while since I've blogged. It's been a busy six months. I'm happy to say I completed my degree and graduated with a Master's of Fine Art from NH Institute of Art in Manchester. I don't regret a minute of it and am already missing it. I'm drawn to the academic world and living where I do, I miss the stimulation that I get from being engaged in it. PHD next?

Work in progress. I'm thinking this might be a new direction. Further articulation on my relation to the landscape. I keep thinking about a Georgia O'Keeffe quote that speaks to her desire to have viewers see the landscape the way SHE saw it. And a smart man once said to me that Van Gogh painted his subjects the way HE saw them. Perhaps not everyone sees things the way those of us that call ourselves artists do.
And one that I recently finished.

Phew! Finally getting a chance to post almost 2 months after graduation. It's been a whirlwind to say the least. The final residency was stressful and joyful at the same time. Graduation was intimate, personal and ultimately fulfilling. My sons flew out to join me which was the icing on the cake. And of course, most gratifying, the final installation was well received. Now to keep on making.
