MAIN GALLERY: Above & Beyond
Vintage chairs, architectural details and outdoor environments mix it up in this group of oil paintings. The chairs and other furniture have left the house and feel settled in wild patches of fields and in gardens. My images consist of fantasies; a chair tipsy after drinking wine, a chair sitting high in a tree observing a bird. My Cape Cod memories somehow seem contemporary to me though, as if they are still to be enjoyed. Others have their own memories to pass on to future generations.
CENTER GALLERY: Uninvited Guests
What do you do with uninvited guests? We've had our fair share of critters and creatures and they settle in at the house when we aren't there at Cape Cod. They have wings and little stingers that make your life miserable when they get territorial and attack you. However, they're worth studying, labeling, categorizing and mounting on boards with pins.
They can be attractive or creepy, making themselves comfortable in our living room, but their real habitat should be outside.
