Parisian Waiter

This was painted from a corner of a photo I took in Paris. I hadn't noticed until recently how the silver tray reflected the sun onto the waiter's face from underneath. That, combined with the action of him wiping the table, created an interesting composition. Oil on 14"h x 18" w stretched canvas. SOLD.

Tuscan Landscape

This was the view from one of the vineyards in Tuscany. I have no idea where, though. My husband and I took a bus tour from Florence last year, which took us to Sienna, San Gimignano, another small fortress town and to a winery about an hour from Florence. The tour was a whirlwind, so we didn't have time to explore the grounds of the winery. Just before dusk, between rounds of wine samples, I sneaked from the wine lecture to snap the reference photo for this painting.

Piazza Della Republica

Street sweepers clean the stone streets of Florence in the mornings, giving the city a fresh feeling at the start of the day. This is the newly cleaned Piazza Della Republica. Oil on 20"h x 24"w x 1 1/2" stretched linen.

Corner Bistro in the West Village

This is a building that houses a wonderful restaurant in the West Village of NYC. The name of the restaurant is Tartine. My husband was kind enough to pose for me at one of the tables on the sidewalk.

This was one of the paintings I exhibited at Greensburg Art Center in Greensburg, PA. The show was called "115 Years of Painting: Four Artists' Collective Years of Painting." It showcased my recent paintings as well as work by Jolene Joyner, Barbara Kern-Bush and Doreen Currie. The show was in the gallery until October 22, 2016.

As of October 23rd, the show in Greensburg has ended. This painting is now available on UGallery. SOLD.

Along the Cliff Walk

This is a view from the Cliff Walk in Newport, Rhode Island. Along the walk, one can see ( and walk on) boulders and mansions. Oil on 24"h x 30"w stretched canvas.
