Winter Reflections

Here in New York, the winter of 2013–14 has been hard and cold. I spent much of it with a frozen kitchen sink and a studio heater working overtime.

But it has also been a fantastically beautiful few months, and now that spring is almost in sight, I am looking forward to displaying the fruits of the season – along with some old favorites – at the West End Gallery’s “In the Spotlight” exhibition (March 14 – April 25 in Corning, NY). The show opens this Friday, 5:00–7:30pm, with food, drinks, and live music.

My new paintings are a direct reflection of the season’s experiencing – from wandering through the remains of a magnificent snowfall, to steeping in the quiet solitude of a February afternoon indoors. But the older works fit the theme as well – from ‘Harvest Song’, where the season begins to turn, to the whitetail antlers that inevitably mark the transition from autumn into winter, to the pair of roses that I painted several years ago to lift myself out of a “deep and dark December”.

The subject matter of each piece is personal to me, but I hope that they all express qualities that everyone can relate to.
