Music at Time Home

Music at Time Home

Oil on canvas, gold leaf, sealed yarn & burlap, wood

“Music at Time Home“ is a painting about being inspired by music. For me, listening to music while painting has a trance-like effect, which is represented by the woman in this work. The clock on her head and the numbers floating in the background represent the timeless feeling of being in a trance—the moment where time seems to stand still and past and present merge. The clothing and boots are reminiscent of a bygone era while the adoring dog grounds the woman in the living present. The tiny singer, held delicately in the woman’s lap, serenades the woman who sits staring forward, emotionally fixated on the music, gazing into the distance—the future perhaps? This painting began as a bust of a woman with a clock on her head. I chose to cut out certain areas and add others in—the dog, the clothing and the singer. I purposely emphasized edited portions with bold black yarn stitching. Attached at the top is a signboard bearing the title, “Music at Time Home”.

Painting veils is something I love doing. Sometimes the veil is the main subject, as in this piece. It started as part of a longer stretch of canvas, but I cut it apart to showcase portions of the veil more directly. This and others are a break from my past veil work which features a black background with a white veil fluttering across. I decided to go the opposite route and brighten up with a pale sky blue background with a small shower of silver raindrops that glisten in the light. As I child, I used to lay in bed admiring the veil-like curtains nearby, which in a way seemed to whisper to me. Hence, the title…”Whisper”.

The Amazing One Shoe Trick

The Amazing One Shoe Trick

Oil with acrylic on canvas, sealed yarn & burlap, copper, silver, & gold leaf .

This painting is an example of my "Difficult Women" series. It is made up of canvas pieces that were cut out from other paintIngs... just waiting to be used in something else. The 'ants' hanging by strings in this piece are renditions of 'cooties' from the old-style game "Cootie'. The other pieces were originally together in another painting entitled "Magic Women".....I decided she had to be reconfigured, so I enlarged her into this new form. She is a magician performing a trick of sorts for us, fooling the eye with her imagery. This is a monster of a piece. It has a zillion stitches and gold, silver, and copper leafing on top of sealed burlap.

Treat

Treat

Oil on canvas, sealed yarn, & burlap, silver leaf, gold leaf.

“Treat”, another from the “Difficult Women” series, was intended to resemble an old fashioned doll more so than an actual person. The circus is her arena, as the showgirl and her little dog entertain the crowd with treats held possibly much too high on her extended pole ‘arms’. At least one treat is within grasp.

BirdWatcher

BirdWatcher

fired ceramic tile with glass mosaic edge detail

This piece, “BirdWatcher” was inspired by the artist Parmigianino, and Italian artist and his work entitled “Madonna with the Long Neck” from the era of 1535-40. I love his figures for the unnaturally long necks he gave them.
This long neck lady gazes out of the frame from a field with a sky full of migrating birds. I decided to ‘decorate’ and at the same time add 'closure' to the lower edge of this piece with a lovely pale colored glass motif.

Book of Then

Hand painted fired & mounted ceramic tile

“Book of Then” is from a series of single fired tiles with minimally painted images of female heads, often with books balanced on top. I call them the ‘hanging heads’. The ‘book titles’ on her head are mainly what was on my mind at the time…. Looking back on life and people I had known….’Then”.
