For the twenty years that I lived in lovely Sandy Springs I took walks almost daily around my neighborhood and beyond. I particularly love springtime in Atlanta- the abundance and variety of flowering trees and flowers is overwhelming. One Saturday, on the day before Easter, I wandered into Arlington Memorial Gardens because of its beautiful paths and serene setting. The cherry trees were spectacularly at the peak of their blooming. I hurried home and returned with my plein-aire set up. The way the sunlight illuminated the blossoms of this particular tree spoke to me of hope on this day before the holiest day of celebration of life over death.
This painting is part of a series of images I made based on tiny antique lead figures. The little cow figure is only 1.75" tall but has a presence that far exceeds his humble size. I have a collection of tiny people and animals like this which were made primarily in England and France nearly a hundred years ago.
This painting is part of a series of images I made of the Chattahoochee River which runs through Atlanta. The various parks along the river have been favorite walking spots of mine over the many years I’ve lived in the area. This is a scene from very early on a January morning, one that was warm enough to produce the foggy haze that turned the riverscape pink in the sunrise.
This is a 22" x 30" drawing on paper from a series I did based upon vintage photos I find in junk stores. I regularly make the rounds at my favorite places that sell discarded stuff. I like the stores that aren't good enough to be called antique stores. I want there to be a great mix of truly horrible things with very peculiar weird things mixed in---a treasure hunt that I find relaxing and inspiring. Often there will be a box full of old family photos.
This 48" x 48" oil painting was inspired by a curly-headed little boy who belongs to one of my favorite nieces, Kara. She takes the most insightful and soulful photographs of her gorgeous children and this work is the result of my engagement with her work.
This 24"x24" oil painting was inspired by a tiny toy lead figure, part of a collection I have of pre-war lead figures. Most of them come from England and France. More familiar are the lead soldiers, but I collect common folk--farmers and merchants and children and animals. This guy is my favorite.
This 36"x36" oil painting was a commission for a friend from childhood who saw my recent work and contacted me on social media. She had a favorite photo of her two little boys and she wanted to know if I would consider making a painting of it. The funny thing was that I had seen this photo many years before and I loved it and remembered thinking at that time that I would love to paint it.
I love Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll. Not the Disney version, but the books illustrated by John Tenniel. In childhood, and even now, I poured over the lyrical and sometimes extremely funny words. The line drawings inspired me beyond measure, fueling my passion to learn to draw. This is a 22" x 30" drawing on paper from a series I did based upon vintage photos I find in junk stores.
