Rethinking the Family Album

I'm building a collection of drawings of my family using the photos taken at special moments. My charcoal drawings highlight the person and eliminate the excess noise from the original picture.  Unlike professional photography, these drawings are tied to specific memories I cherish and love.

I took a trip to Montauk, NY in October to sketch and take reference shots.  The focus of these paintings is to play with light and color.  I eliminated water when mixing paint.  Instead I used a variety of mediums to change the consistency and shine of the acrylic paint.  After years away from the easel, it's been an enlightening experience!

My acrylic painting Mist (2015) was accepted in Perkins Center for the Arts Juried Exhibit, on view until November 27th at the Moorestown location.

Mist is the inspiration for the Montauk dusk/dawn series.  The colors and mood of the moments just around sunrise and sunset is my focus in this series.

Thank you all for your support!!  
Stay tuned and visit my facebook, instagram, and website.  

Until next month, have a great one!
