I'll be opening an exhibition at the Adelson Galleries Boston this Friday, February 6th. The reception will be 6 to 8 pm - all are welcome - and the exhibition will run until March 15th. After, it will travel to the Adelson Galleries in New York, opening there on March 24th and running until April 25th.

At the end of December, I finished another in my series of cat paintings:
Woman with a Grey Cat
11 1/2" x 9 1/2" oil on linen 2014
Private Collection, California
This composition sets the energy of bright red and green complementary colors against the balancing dark notes of the sky, skirt, and cat, while the underlying structure plays the diagonal of the figure against the counterpoint of the second smaller diagonal of the skirt and cat. All looks simple enough, but it was an interesting image to paint.
The idea came from a quick sketch done in November:
Woman with a Grey Cat, initial sketch
ca. 5" x 4 1/2" pen on paper 2014
Woman with a Grey Cat, drawing #2
6 1/2" x 5 1/2" pencil on graph paper 2014
