I Owe Pink An Apology

The color - not the pop star.

I’d always despised the color pink - thinking it was wimpy and lacking life. Clearly I had been hanging around with all the wrong pinks. It might have been a sad misconception I picked up from my mom. She also hated pink.

Until she got to be about 80. One day she confessed drily, “I like pink. It is because I’m old, I guess. I don’t know. When you get to be an old lady you start liking pink.”

Then we laughed and laughed. But she wasn’t joking - she liked pink.

I started in painting with pink as an act of rebellion - surely REAL artists don’t use pink, do they?

I choose not just “pinky pink’ but what a friend refers to as “PANK” - bright, burn-your-retinas-pink. The pinkest pink of all pinks. Magenta. Fluorescent Pink. Hot Pink. I love them.

Sometimes the pink covers the background and sometimes it is a coloristic surprise as in my painting, Happy Catch.

Please forgive me pink. I was wrong. You add life and spice to my world.

Artfinder Editorial Picks In Abstract Art

I am tickled to announce that two of my pieces are included in Artfinder’s recent Abstract Art Editorial Picks! I have to admit that in reviewing their selections, I was tempted to click and buy so many of the works on the list. They have a great selection of abstract art in a wide price range. They chose a very affordable painting on paper from my collection, We Will Dance.

Don’t miss out - get a painting from the series here.

Get Ready! New Group Exhibit Coming in March

Psst! My bright and sassy paintings will be part of a small group show, “Darker Joys” at the Cambridge Art Association in March 2019. Save the date for the reception on Thursday, March 7, 2019. It will be a reception like you’ve never seen before.


I Don't Like New Year's Eve

I have to admit that this is the worst time of year. Those long, short days between Christmas and New Year drag. New Year's Eve is a dreary drunken requirement.

Inside, I sit tensely waiting, checking my watch and craning my neck - my 2019 bags are packed and I'm impatient for the New Year to arrive already. -- You guys have a Happy New Year. I'll just be tapping my foot impatiently while everyone toasts.

Bring on the 1st - I HAVE PLANS.
