Ethereal Space at The Badge Building

My series of paintings called Ethereal Space was purchased by The Badge Building as a permanent installation for the lobby area. Residents of the luxury condominium building (that once served as a factory in the production of police badges for New York City officers) cast their vote and the fate of Ethereal Space was sealed. Thanks to all the residents who voted, the building's board members, the building's staff, Michelle Abbani of Cornerstone Management and LICArtists.

My First Hamptons Show

Thank you to Engel and Völkers real estate office in Southampton, NY, for hosting an Evening of Art. It was my first solo show. We intended to have the show in the beautiful 'Secret Garden' of the office but the weather did not cooperate! The paintings were displayed in the office but little breaks in the weather allowed us to enjoy wine and nibbles in the garden too. It was a wonderful evening and I'm sending a big THANK YOU to all those who came to the show whether they were staying in the Hamptons for the weekend or traveling from NYC for the event.  

Special thanks go to Jonathan Lerner, Amadeus Ehrhardt and of course Elva Guerra of Engel and Völkers Southampton office for their kindness, cooperation and support, and to John Morales of Lieb Family Cellars for his expert knowledge of wine and his unfailing enthusiasm, support and networking skills! 

Thanks also to my very dear friends Trish and Geoff who provided me with accommodation, comfort and Margaritas in their beautiful home. Lastly, thank you to all my special friends who helped me with the show and my sanity over the last three months. You know who you are......

This painting is closest to my heart for my own personal reasons. It's bitter/sweet to sell paintings. I'm happy that collectors love my art enough to invest in it and me but it's always sad to see the paintings leave the studio. This piece in particular will be hard to part with but I do hope that it resonates with someone special for their own personal reasons. This painting is 36 x 72 inches. Acrylic on canvas.

Surface to Air

I love this painting. Everything just worked right from the start. The name came to me as I was painting and it stuck. It's exhilarating working on this large scale.....48 x 72 inches. Acrylic on canvas.

Formation, 30 x 60 in, Acrylic on Canvas

I finished my painting called Formation yesterday after braving the snow storm to get to my hot, cosy little studio. It's so full of good energy! I turned up the music and painted 'til I dropped. I had heard the trains were not going to run but I figured I could always walk home across the 59th St bridge. When you are on a roll, you just have to go with it. Thankfully, the trains were still running by the time I left.

The Grand Central Academy of Art

I'm enjoying the new year and all the hope and optimism it brings. I'm also enjoying a new art school. I want to divide my education between the Art Students League and The Grand Central Academy of Art. Doesn't it sound grand? It is situated in a loft in a classical 1880's building in midtown Manhattan. The Academy, created by professional artists, provides classical training in drawing and painting. My instructor is John DeMartin who I met at the League.

Long Island City

Long Island City sounds like it's miles away from Manhattan. Not so. It is literally on the other side of the East River, directly opposite Midtown Manhattan. It is a short hop on the subway and it takes me about 25 minutes from home to studio. It takes 20 minutes on my bike but it's a bit chilly for that at the moment. Come Spring my legs are going to look fantastic with the workout I will get from cycling across the 59th St bridge.

March 3 - Open Studios (An Armory Show event)
May 22-23 - Open Studios (Long Island City annual event)

I will be opening my studio door at #309 Juvenal Reis Studios, 43-01, 22nd St, 3rd Floor, Long Island City, NY 11101
