Show at Trinity Episcopal Cathedral

Gathering: Alone in a Crowd, acrylic on panel, 24 x 24
"Do you know about 'Quirkyalone'?" a viewer asked me when he saw this painting. 

I had never heard the word before that moment, but I asked him about it and then looked it up on line. According to Wikipedia:

"Quirkyalone is a neologism referring to someone who enjoys being single and generally prefers to be alone rather than dating for the sake of it"

 The word has been around for 15 years and this was the first time I heard it. 

There is no greater compliment than to hear that a painting touches someone in a meaningful way.

This painting is part of a group show of abstract work with some paintings based on a specific triad of paint colors. I hope you will be able to come and see the show!

monotypes for the shows

Monotype, "Breeze" 14 x 14
 These are just two of many monotypes that are getting framed and ready for two shows coming up this Spring! 

Simple black wood frames and wide white double matting make these pieces windows of color wherever they hang.

In March/April 2014 you can see my work as part of a PDX-WAM group show at Trinity Episcopal Cathedral in Portland, OR. 

In April 2014 you can see my work in a solo show at In Bocca al Lupo Fine Art Gallery in Milwaukie, OR. 
Monotype, "Ascending" 14 x 14
More details to come!
