It’s difficult to convey the scope of the Storm King Art Center. There is simply so much there and from different areas of the grounds you see the sculpures in different ways in relation to the landscape around them. I snapped quite a few pictures… Read More
I visited Dia:Beacon in the Hudson Valley today, just a few miles away from Storm King, which I visited yesterday. Dia has been in this huge old Nabisco factory building since 2003. I loved seeing the huge collection of John Chamberlain’s work. Louise Lawler had… Read More
I spent yesterday wandering through Storm King, a 500 acre sculpture park in the Hudson Valley, boasting one of the best collections of outdoor scuptures anywhere. It includes a spectacular collection of Mark Di Suvero’s massive steel constructions (one of them is pictured here), and… Read More
I started a group of backyard paintings (or is this a drawing made with paint?) on paper today. This one is August 20, 2018. This is acrylic on acid-free drawing paper, which I bought in a 60″ roll. I used a round brush taped to… Read More

This small painting (about the size of a large dinner plate) was intended for my last solo show but was not exhibited. It’s acrylic on masonite and it floats off the wall a little bit. I’ll let this one speak for itself.
Stormchaser’s Dream is one of the group of encaustics I exhibited at my former gallery Yumart, back in 2016. Like the others, I started with a lozenge-shaped chunk of wood which I created from a plank using a jigsaw and a mini-grinder. I applied the… Read More
