For those of you not familiar with my larger, more abstract work, I want to share some examples newly back from the photographer and not yet up on my website. "Never Going Home" was one of the first in this body of work, completed last year while I took a month sabbatical from my home life and rented a place by myself in Brooklyn. This began a whole new way of working, inspired by the layers and textures of the city surrounding me. For now, I will post paintings on Sundays, until I get up to speed in my teaching job and have a bit more time.

Peach was completed September 9, 2006. It is oil color on 8" x 10" hand-stretched canvas.
I recently began teaching again, and need to re-balance my time between school, studio and computer, as well as family, home and rental properties! I can do this...
