Sunday Reception for 4 Women Exhibit, March 16, 2:00-3:30
Please join me and the three other artists (Gloria Karlson, Joan Levine and Aija Sears) at the reception for the 4 Women Exhibit at the Riverdale-Yonkers Society for Ethical Culture, 4450 Fieldston Road at the corner of Fieldston Road and Manhattan College Parkway in the Riverdale section of the Bronx.

Moving from representational watercolors of landscapes and nature into abstraction has been a two steps forward and one step back process for me. I sometimes have a hard time banishing the realistic, recognizable image in order to create something less immediately understandable but more intriguing and, when I’m lucky, more powerful. A useful tool in this process is collage: going through old paintings that were not quite ready for prime time, cutting them up, rearranging the pieces, adding other pieces from other paintings, and something new is born.
Blue and Green is one such collage. Looking at it now, I can no longer completely remember what my original painting looked like.
If you’re in the NYC area, I hope to see you at the reception on March 16, 2:00 – 3:30.
