The Art Fly

Scattered throughout my house and studio are natural treasures: gorgeous seashells, beautiful animal skulls, woodcarvings from Africa and New Zealand, seedpods, a huge array of beach stones, bamboo and cinnamon. Many of these have appeared in the paintings and silverpoints on The Art Fly and many more wait in the wings…

These compositions, that are part of my Meditations series, usually come together over a few days as I gradually become aware of their presence, shifting and switching elements around until it feels right. These banded stones won out this time, and spoke in a way that seemed to say: we’re stuck. Of course, I could be projecting.

For each of the paintings in this series I typically create a “floating” frame (not shown here because not built yet). But, please email if you are interested in this piece.
