Spring: polarized

One of the things that is hard to capture in photos of my art is the texture. That is part of the whole show for me. I love the the patina of old buildings and furniture, the real time worn feel of things. With all the layers of paint I try to capture some of that same feeling, not as a mimic but has a homage. This painting uses different finishes as well as a mix of acrylic and oil based paints. The result is a varied landscape of lusters that enhance the chorus and cacophony of colors. In the photo you'll just have to take my word for it, but if you stop in to reorient in Warwick, RI you can see for yourself.

Artpath press

Here's a review of the art show in VT. I was very pleased, I must say, to have my work highlighted. Thanks again to the artpath gallery for the opportunity. Its a great little location on the waterfront in Burlington, Vt. I recommend eating at Henry's Dinner for breakfast or brunch while you're there.

Did I ever tell you that I appeared in a TV ad for the Burlington Savings Bank (now a Citezens bank). Yes that was my first brush with wild fame and fortune, I was about seven years old and shopping malls were still an amazing modern marvel to me. I think a whole 2 people recognized me. More people think I'm the actor on that show where the guy gets the newspaper that tells the future. If I knew what the guys name was I'd say it was me, then act like a real jerk, have a tony danza moment and unload all my pent up frustration. Then people would go away saying what a jerk that guy is. Does that qualify as identity theft? or performance art?
