Paintings from the Hudson Artists Spring Show

An eclectic mix of paintings that I had on view at the Hudson Artists Spring Show.  It was the first
time in quite a few years since I had been a member and I decided to show a sampling of what
I had been known for (florals), as well as some of the work that I've been working on lately....
mixed media work for example.  There was a lot of interest in the newer works although I sold the
largest painting (the pink blossoms shown earlier in this blog) on the first night.  I am buoyed by the
interest in the new pieces as well.

Collage Portraits

I've been working on a new series that will incorporate vintage portraits within layers of text and relevant imagery.  The fun is in collecting and pulling together the bits of history that support the image.  Soon I will add the information needed to be able to offer these portraits to those who would love to see their treasured vintage photos pulled out of desks and drawers and incorporated into framed art work.  Original photos would be scanned and returned and only the copies will be digitally altered for use in the collage.

Happy Easter!

Hydrangeas are everywhere at Easter time, so this is my Easter greeting to everyone.  I've been working on this one on and off and as Spring approached I gravitated back to it.  It is a 24" square acrylic painting on stretched canvas.  Except for signing, this one is finished.
