Painting Catalogue in the Works: Stay Tuned
Greetings! Well, it has been over a month since I returned with my family from my Art Inspiration & Research Trip to Southern Spain & Morocco. And what can I say? It was even more magnificent and grand an adventure than expected. Every day was rich and full in so many inexplicable ways that I almost can’t write about it. Words are so inadequate. I am processing it and will be doing so for quite a long while. Since being home to begin, I have been painting and working with a Star of David pattern in blue found at the Lazama Synagogue in Marrakech.
Well it’s here, it’s happening. It is with deepest gratitude to my sponsors & supporters that my artistic dream is funded and is coming true!! I thank each one of them for deeply believing in me and my value as an artist, bringing my visions into the world. This is really beyond priceless to me.
It was October 1991 since the one & only time I went to the Alhambra Palace – I am so excited to return! It had a profound effect on me as a young artist. Above are pictures of me then from that European trip where I also studied art at an International Program in Italy (doing figure drawings and abstract paintings) then traveled through Europe, backpacking for 4 months.
Two more weeks left to see the painting “entangled spirits” in the flesh at my solo show “arabesque” at Nancy Toomey Fine Art at the Minnesota Street Project, San Francisco! It is up until April 29th, 2017. This painting, I’m thrilled to say, has been sold with 3 other paintings, siblings going to a new home together.
