I'm so pleased and honored to have work in the June issue of Fine Art Connoisseur Magazine. It contains an ad for my work that includes three paintings: Day Star, Silver Flower and Near the Tannhauser Gate.
|The work is available through Principle Gallery, Alexandria and Charleston locations.|

And a few details:
Super close-ups are a great record of the artist's journey through a painting. I was paying close attention to the color temperature shifts in the skin here. I'd decided that the light is predominately cool and the shadows are mostly warm with a slight cool reflected light on the far side of the face. This thinking helps to solidify a plan of attack when choosing which colors to use and where to use them.

Two galleries are hosting Women Painting Women shows this fall.
Richard J Demato Gallery in Sag Harbor, NY. He has a call for work with a swiftly approaching deadline later this month too.
I still believe in this very important mission and am inspired by the work and the artists that have been shown as a result of the group.
So check them out and see if you have appropriate work to submit. Good luck!
