Working in the print studio at the South Shore Art Center in Cohasset, MA is a weekly exercise that helps to keep me creating artwork on a consistent basis while connecting with other local printmakers. As a Gallery Artist I have been invited to submit a piece for the upcoming Gallery Artist Showcase that opens May 29- June 12, 2015 in the Dillon Gallery. The opening reception is Friday, May 29 from 6 to 8 pm. My submission is the above monotype entitled Pink Garden.
Summer is closing in and the outdoor art scene is percolating. The 60th Anniversary for the South Shore Arts Festival is slated for June 19th-21st, 2015 in Cohasset, MA. Two of my pieces have been selected to be included in the Juried Show and one in the Members’ Show.
The Arts Festival is an event not to be missed as the South Shore of Massachusetts celebrates the local creative community. The above monotype entitled meadow will find it’s way to the fine arts tent in the Juried Exhibit. Please visit.
The Framers Edge in Braintree, MA have graciously offered to exhibit my artwork. Stop by to view a wide range of my pieces and special thanks to Max for creating a great wall design.

Ahhhh… everything starts out so nice and orderly once I arrive at the print studio. The brushes are calling out to me! The rags are untouched by ink or paint.
While satisfying my intuition I am drawn to my color choices for the day. Things begin to get messy.
While scraping and painting I’m loosely working out the details of a design that feels right to me. Not long ago I watched the movie Le mystere Picasso that tried to capture the creative process of his work. It’s worth checking out as the viewer can see how Picasso had such a fearless approach to making art. If a piece didn’t work out-he accepted it as part of the process.
Once an initial print has been pulled I retool the design and manipulate it. Each monotype print is unique and different. After initially tinkering with a more muted palette I ventured towards black which is ultra-bold for me. My goal is to create a finished piece that tells a story about color, texture, nature and the love of paint.
