Warm greetings! I hope this finds you well and that you and your loved ones are off to a great start to the summer. I am grateful to you for receiving my email!
For many years I have worked on private commissions, ranging from intimate paintings and prints to large-scale public works. With this newsletter, I am excited to share a few recently finished works. Each commission is a unique experience and results in a growing connection with individuals. Often the commission experience includes intense conversations and interviews. My collectors become friends.
The work above is part of a series of 16 paintings commissioned for the Metropolitan Skin Clinic
in Edina. Each treatment room now has a painting with a word embedded within, chosen by each respective practitioner (eg. facial expert, skin treatment technician). The piece shown above incorporates all of the participants’ words. It was wonderful to work on this meaningful project!
Untitled, 2022, Acrylic on Canvas, 36” x 60”
This work was one of two created as a commission for special collectors, who have been long-time supporters of my work. These works are abstract with mark-making and words that recall memories. I am grateful that they entrusted me with this very poignant work.
Two images: Woodlawn LightWindow, 2022, Acrylic on Tyvek mounted on a plexiglass box with light, 30” x 60”.
This work reflects my new LightWindows Series. The Tyvek work was painted on both sides, transforming the painting when lit up. After completing a number of smaller prototypes, and this larger work, I plan to use this technology scaled up in m my upcoming exhibitions at Minnesota Marine Art Museum
(2022) and Rochester Art Center
