Home is Where the Art Is: Part 2

Standard

A continuation of the tour of my personal collection …

Two Project 24 pieces that will be hard for me to give up!

An abstract with metal from 2010.

housetour10

A recent Lake Michigan series piece that my husband claimed for his own. I’ve been expressly forbidden to sell it.

housetour11

From my 2010 Song and Dance series. It’s one I can’t part with.

housetour12

More Song and Dance. This one is special to me for a few reasons, but one is that I’ve taken lessons for years on the djembe!

housetour13

Two more from my 2010 abstract and metal period.

I love art in surprising places, like over a window. This piece is from my Venice Series of 2008.
housetour16

From my painted photo collection. Now, they bring me happiness in my kitchen.

housetour17

Two nudes from my studies in Florence. Life drawing teaches you more than any other discipline I can think of. It’s hugely important to the evolution of the artist.

housetour18

A very old painting from life. One of my firsts from around 2005.

Home is Where the Art Is: Part 1

Standard

My husband Marc and I recently had our house renovated, so I thought it would be a fun time to show you some of my art — spanning various genres — as it appears in my home. Come inside and take a virtual tour!

From my Flamenco series. After falling in love with the performance in Spain, I couldn’t stop painting these dancing girls for a spell!

housetour1

A favorite of my studies from life drawing.

housetour2

Having studied art in Mexico and spent a ton of time there through the years, Latin dance is near and dear to my heart!

housetour3

From my black and white drawing series: the gorgeous African bulls!

housetour4

The painting in the middle is a stunner by Miguel Gomez, but the abstracts on either side are by yours truly. I think they play a nice supporting role to the star in the center.

From the other side.

This photo was taken in 2000, on a month long excursion of India. It’s one of the only pieces from my era as a photographer that will always be near and dear to my heart.

Project 24 painting of Longview Winery, temporarily bringing me joy!
