some older paintings
I'm scanning some slides of older paintings. This one isn't very old... it's from 2003. The slide isn't the greatest, but I love this painting. My brother and his wife have it now. There is a rainbow in the background... toooo many rainbows and skulls in painting was talked about on PaintersNYC the other day.
Here is a detail of the center of the painting. Tiny tiny cut-paper figure crossing a tiny tiny bridge of thread.
Here is another rainbow one. I don't have any slides of this painting; the people who own it are selling their house, and I went to the open house last week and took this picture. They also have Rosemarie Fiore, Susan Jamison, Bruce Wilhelm.. and others. It was interesting to see their old art and prints with the newer stuff. Definitely thanks to John for creating and guiding local collectors.
No nice slide of that second rainbow painting, but here is a good detail shot of the figure... and here it is with Peter Halley!
Honeycomb is from 1999. This is the one Lois Dodd posed in front of, while it was still in progress, at the Vermont Studio Center. Last time I saw this painting it was hanging in Plum Gallery... I don't own it anymore.
Here is a detail of Honeycomb.
I can't believe I can't find any skulls in any of my paintings! I think these two images from the twenty-piece One Day in the Garden are the only ones... can that be true? Oh! Here is one, kind of, from way back. There must be more.
Rie is the star of all of these... she is the little figure on the bridge, the figure under the rainbow, the face in Honeycomb, the happy attackers in that second One Day image. She is the bees knees!
