I am thrilled to report that my painting “Girders” got accepted into the tri-state juried show “Line Describing a Cone” at the Katonah Museum of Art.  Even more exciting, the juror is a curator at NYC’s Museum of Modern Art (MOMA).

Here’s my name tag…so I guess it’s official 🙂

Lest you think I’ve been resting on my laurels, here’s a study for another painting I’m working on.

I’ve also been working on some collages.  Here’s one I just completed.

As I type in all the sizes of the artwork, I am reminded of this map of countries that don’t use the metric system.map metric systemWe are sorely outnumbered!   The US just never embraced the metric system.  Which is why every time I read a blog post that is not from the states I have to go to The Google to find out what size 20 x 25 centimeters corresponds to in inches.  I remember they tried to get us to change to metric when I was in grade school.  Clearly, that did not work.

Last but not least, my brother who does not read my blog emailed to say that my 7 year old nephew has his painting hanging in his grade school.  However, he also told me the Katonah Museum called.  They were going to bump a painting in the Katonah show to make way for my nephew’s.

I may be biased, but I love this painting!  They can bump one of the paintings for this masterpiece any day.  Just not mine.  Actually, I’m sure they can find some wall space somewhere.  We can exhibit together, my nephew and me.
