I am a cat person. You wouldn’t guess it from all the dogs I’ve watercolored recently. So, this weekend I painted a pretty kitty named Ginger. She’s so fluffy!

Ventnor, NJ’s art community is growing fast. This evening, I went to the season’s first Art in the Park event. Hopefully I will attend many more.

My work is not about the interaction between the natural world and the human made world. That would imply that somehow the human made world is unnatural.
In the art world, words like “juxtaposition” are used exclusively to describe two objects that don’t belong together. That is absurd. At one time there were objects that could shock simply by being placed next to one another. But this is the post, post modern world and the age of the internet. There is no “shock.” Every object is just as connected to, or disconnected from, the next. A leaf is no more connected to another leaf than it is to a car or a photograph of Ronald Reagan.
The connection (and subsequential disconnection) each object has with the object next to it is what my work is about. Whether the objects involved are organic or geometric is irrelevant.

Behind my laundry mat, there is a supermarket. The food is fresh and well priced. I would not know about this food market if it was not for my need to go on walks as my clothes dry. The store is called “Gokul: Indian Supermarket.” It is a beautiful building.

In early spring, even the most well kept yards have an unruly look to them. The plants seem to burst from the ground joyfully. The home depicted below caught my eye as I was doing my morning errands. I had to stop and catch its cool yet dynamic, early spring attitude.

As I’ve mentioned, this summer I’m participating in dowtown Ocean City’s weekly painting event. Last week, it looked like rain. I asked Grass Roots Music if I could paint the interior of thier Asbury Avenue store. Not only did the owner say yes, but I was introduced to the many talented people who work and hang out there. I hope the resulting painting captures the welcoming atmosphere of the guitar shop.
