off to a good start

January is over, and the new year is off to a good start. I’ve completed 24 new pieces. Most of the new pieces are small ink and gouache paintings on cut paper. Framing ┬áplays an important part in these pieces, and I’ve been able to frame eleven of the nineteen paper pieces. Three have sold, so here are the eight framed paper pieces that are in the studio right now:

"you have what you need" ink and gouache on cut paper, ~6x6

“you have what you need”
ink and gouache on cut paper, ~6×6

"some glide, some float" ink and gouache on cut paper, ~6x6

I found out last week that one of my paintings was accepted into the 51st Annual Juried Competition at the Masur Museum of Art. I feel honored to participate in this show again. I look forward to meeting the juror and seeing the exhibition. Here is the piece that was accepted:

"many things are difficult between two" acrylic on wood panel, 35x45

“many things are difficult between two”
acrylic on wood panel, 35×45
