Mon, 28 Jan 2013 20:09:32 +0000

Hat, oil on 12 x 16 inch basswood panel Nancy, oil on 8 x 10 inch board Ottercreek, oil on 12 x 12 inch board The four paintings done from photographs taken in the Sleeping Bear Dunes, Michigan, were intended as studies of sand.

Sauce for the Turkey

Sun, 25 Nov 2012 03:56:13 +0000

It started out as a place to dry dipped sheets of paper. But the Foamula surface began to take on a life of its own. At first I contented myself with applying a mixture of gold paint and varnish in an effort to glue the whole thing together. After awhile it began to come across […]

Ebony and Ivory

Thu, 15 Nov 2012 02:30:51 +0000

The chain motif that appears in other posts here, continues to occupy me. In this instance I am attempting to develop an idea of racial entanglement that goes back to one of my first inspirations for this series. The work in question is a piece of airport art from Kenya that constitutes a chain, carved […]

Wed, 24 Oct 2012 20:30:49 +0000

This painting captures the sunrise at the Hudson River in Manhattan. At 7:00 am, April 4th, the rays of the sun bounced off the buildings on the New Jersey side and then reflected within the Hudson itself. The early morning sun produced a different lighting than the midday sun in my Sleeping Bear Dune picture. […]

” If I don’t want to exhibit the thing and if it cannot be re-used or improved, then I will throw it away.” Words to cull by. Out of the corners have come some pieces of ill-used Foamula that have caused me to ask: “What was I thinking?’.  However they often still possess a pink reverso, […]

Fri, 20 Apr 2012 00:03:11 +0000

Thinking that learning to draw the human figure might help me drawing the soft shapes of Michigan’s Sleeping Bear Dunes, I took lessons at for the last few months. With charcoal on a 24 x36 inch pad, I drew poses that were held from 1 to 20 minutes. For the 20th anniversary of the […]
