Abstract Landscapes

Since “Early Morning Road to JFK” was selected for the Art Basel Show this week in Switzerland, I thought I would post a couple of paintings in the same vein to monopolize on the wonderful marketing of the Artbox Project Gallery!

Sherwood Inverted, 25 x 37, $950

This view from Sherwood Island in Connecticut looks across Long Island Sound at twilight, the soft glow of orange light glimmers from distant Long Island across the water.  Exposed steel revealed through the clouds, beach and water reflect light and create movement in this peaceful serenity.

Icy View from Saugatuck Bridge, 25" x 37", Oil on steel, $950 framed

Icy View from Saugatuck Bridge, 25″ x 37″, $950 framed

Winter in Connecticut has its own beauty. As I walked across the bridge, the movement of my own shadow caught my eye on the frozen river below.  I exposed the steel with a sharp edge to give the piece some movement, create shimmer and reflect the light on the ice.

Grey sky at the Beach

Grey Sky at the BeachI have been reworking a couple of paintings and found, as usual, that I prefer to start a new painting, rather than try to solve a perplexing problem with an existing piece.  It has been raining since I returned to California and I am headed to the beach on Friday so it has been on my mind. This is a little 8″ x 8″ oil on wood panel. Happy Spring!

STEP

I saw “STEP”, Yesterday.  It is the amazing movie of these beautiful, young women, struggling and striving to do their best in an adverse inner city environment.  The art of Stepping has its roots in Africa, brought to this country by African slaves.  It is making music with your body; stomping, slapping, clapping and expressing yourself with movement in a group/team.   The movie follows the girls who decided to start a step team and compete.  The goal of this charter school, Baltimore Leadership School for Young Women, is to have 100% of the senior girls be admitted to college.  This first class did it and are now attending colleges around the country!  It shows how the art of music & dance, being part of a team, and discipline can motivate and propel each individual in the group to greater good than they may have otherwise been capable of achieving.

The film was released at Sundance this past January and the girls all raised the funds to come to Park City to be here to support their work.  Neighborhood friends housed, fed and entertained them for the week they were here.  Some of them had never been out of Baltimore, let alone been on an airplane to anywhere.

This documentary is to be released in several cities in the near future and will be on the Sundance movie channel eventually I imagine.   Stay tuned, I am trying to find out the dates and cities that will be showing this incredible film.
