My Pirate Days
The abstract painting that will be shown in this exhibition are a reflection of my 12- year- marriage to Walter Smith. He was a businessman, a professional actor and a man of integrity and fun. After diagnosis and treatment of cancer in 2006, it was his intention to live life to the fullest. We had ten years of “stolen time” and our marriage was filled with great love and joy. Each painting in this show expresses some of the joy we shared in specific locations or in the humor we saw in the memes of the day. I use color, shape and gesture in oil paint to capture the excitement of a life well lived. While I grieve his loss, I celebrate him for all his quirkiness, his passions and his love for life. I will move forward without him, but first, I will look back to my “pirate days” with Walter Smith.
Deia: A Piece of Paradise
The town of Deia on the island of Mallorca is a literary and artistic enclave in one of the most beautiful parts of Spain. And within this town, Cala Deia is a cove where the views simply overwhelm and change your previous notions of beauty. The pieces in my show are reactions to the land and seascapes before me, as well as to the people lucky enough to be there.
I was inspired by images of galaxies I found. The beautiful flow of colors; intricate forms; and the mystery of such spectacles in the darkness of infinite space.
