Hamptons in November

Even though we went to the Hamptons during the worst weather of autumn, the rough ocean had a wonderful variety of waves and the gray and foggy sky had its own allure.  Seeing unusual abstract forms in nature was rewarding and artistically inspiring.

Mom’s 100th Birthday

My mother, Lillian, has just celebrated her 100th birthday!  She is as smart, curious and funny as ever – quite an amazing and inspirational woman. Over the years, I have created several paintings of her.  Here are two – as a young woman and when she was 96 – as well as a photo of her at age 100.IMG_0308IMG_2678-1000_FullSizeRender

I am pleased to be part of the Blue Door Gallery’s exhibit, “The Art of Healing.”  The exhibit will run from Saturday, August 8 until  September 5 with an opening reception on August 8 from 2-5 pm.  The gallery is at 13 Riverdale Avenue in Yonkers NY.

A wonderful play

I had the pleasure of seeing Athol Fugard’s new play, “The Painted Rocks at Revolver Creek” , currently at the Signature Theatre.  This work was suggested by the life of outsider artist Nukain Mabusa, an aging South African farm laborer who has spent his life transforming rocks into a vibrant garden of painted flowers. The story is powerful and the actors are amazing.
