FLOWERS Part 1


FLOWERS is a personal project and a work in progress. I am planning to post more about it in the future.

Soon I will launch my new website and open a FB page for those of you who would like to see more of my work and stay informed about upcoming books and personal work. A lot is in the works and I am quite excited.

Thank you, as always, for stepping by.

Leaving Home - on a personal note

I start personal pieces often after I finished a book, or sometimes while working on a project, simply to catch a breath, play with an idea, or to break a point where I might feel stuck. LEAVING HOME is such a piece. I had started it literally years ago and completely forgotten about it. It was hidden under a stack of sketches in my studio. Last week, I went to see the Mary Blair exhibition at the Disney Family Museum in San Francisco and was able to spend the day with a wonderful friend talking about art and life. Mary Blair is truly a great talent, and I admire her even more for being such a female force of her time. The point is, I came home so inspired, was restless, and stumbled over this unfinished piece of mine. Still inspired by my visit to the Museum, I finally finished it. I find it interesting to see how different this piece turned out just because of all the years that had passed.

And the day has arrived. Doreen is swimming in open water.
Below I show some sketches which led to Doreen's final look.
