Sharing an inspiring artist with you

On Monday, I attended an inspiring lecture delivered by Oliver Uberti. The lecture was not recorded, so instead I invite you to watch Oliver's TED talks: Smash the Design Button and Untapped Creativity. In Smash the Design Button, Oliver talks a bit about Gaudí's Sagrada Família, which I posted about in November 2013.

Workshop Update
In the next week or two, I will be able to announce my 2-day November 8-9 workshop at the Peto Museum. Thanks for all your interest/emails in the workshop! Space will be very very limited, so keep an eye out for that post.

Ending Soon: ends at 3:30 PM today

Thinking About Food (in honor of Earth Day)
Last June, I shared a bit about the significant impact that a raw food e-course had on me and my painting work. More specifically, starting on the raw vegan path made me feel like I had woken up to new pathways of creative energy within myself and deepened my relationship to my still life objects in ways that I did not expect or imagine.

Now almost a year later, this week I'm again looking forward to Viva Institute's e-course 30 Days Raw -- and this time I'll be taking it as a refresher. If you're at all curious about raw food, I will say that I personally think it's amazing ("raw-mazing") and life-changing. I highly recommend 30 Days Raw; if you approach it with a sense of wonder and curiosity, it is really a blast. For fun: in the picture above is my own homemade beet/carrot/chard juice (L) and carrot/chard juice (R).

Golden Series
Since I introduced the series in August 2012, I've been periodically making paintings that are part of what I refer to as my Golden Series. This is the second Golden Series painting I've done lately, although I am often thinking about the works by Dutch painters Rachel Ruysch, Caspar Netscher, and Abraham Mignon (all of which I studied at the Uffizi in Florence).

If you visit facebook, I posted a photo of today's painting #OnTheEasel.

As I'm preparing for my workshop at Sedona Arts Center next month (May 19-23), I'm looking at many of my favorite photos of Sedona. Here's a small grouping:


If you're interested, I posted a few more photos from my May 2013 workshop here.

Still life with Pitcher and Moscato Grapes

I will soon be announcing my two-day Peto Museum workshop (Nov. 8-9), so keep an eye out for that. Space is extremely limited at the Museum. In the meantime, you can read about my last workshop at the Peto Museum here.

If you visit facebook, I posted a photo of today's painting #OnTheEasel. Then I remembered that the last time (and only other time) I painted this pitcher was in April 2008. I'm curious now because I had no idea that I also previously painted it in the month of April (six years ago!).

Cracked Egg


Click to view auction 

It's been years, I think, since I painted a cracked egg painting. A couple of painters in my workshop this past weekend asked me about painting a cracked egg (and other wet things), so I thought I'd revisit this subject as my "Throwback Thursday."

Matches from Parc Brasserie

I'm just now thinking over a painting trip to Paris and the south of France, and today I had lunch at Parc, a wonderful restaurant on Philadelphia's Rittenhouse Square. "Parc recalls the chic brasseries of Paris" and "pays tribute to French café culture" [from their website]. I highly recommend it!

I'm happy to share with you artwork by Kaytria Stauffer. Kay (a former student of mine) is a multi-talented artist, and she just released a new online exhibition of select jewelry pieces. Kay's work is intricate and complex (both formally and conceptually), so I encourage you to take some time to visit her online "show" here. My favorite piece is pictured here to the right. Enjoy!

Do you Sedona? 
I've been to Sedona a few times to teach workshops, but each time I go it feels like a completely new world to me there. While I was there last year, one place I visited for the first time was Amitabha Stupa. I posted a few photos of it here, but it's an indescribable place, really. When I was there it was sunset and breezy, and I spent my time sitting with some curious bunnies.   If you are interested in painting with me this May in Sedona, visit here.
