First Painting of 2012!

"Hills Hotel - Red Chair #1"

This is my very first painting of 2012!

"Hills Hotel - Red Chair #1" is an original oil 
on a Raphael Linen Panel - 14" x 11"
(available from studio)

This brand new piece represents a direction I will
be heading towards in this wonderful New Year!
This is the year of the dragon...a year for change...
and... this is going to be the best year ever!!!!

My penchant for figurative renderings is even more
passionate than ever!  I am adding some brand new
 colors to my palette, and stretching to new heights
 new techniques, and some novel painterly surfaces 
to launch my 2012 series.

This year, my skin tones will take on porcelain hues
with softer edges and a focus on stunning features;
 distinctive features that draw you in and 
don't allow you to leave.
I plan on accentuating expressive graceful hands,
alluring lips and arresting eyes.

All women are so beautiful, inside and out.  
Capturing this inner beauty 
is my ultimate creative intent.  Portraying this
grace and elegance in my works my 

My model for the Hills Hotel series is a wonderful,
effervescent, sweet and lovely young woman who
leaves you feeling happy just knowing her.
  She is an absolute joy and it is an honor to work with her.

I invite you, the viewer, to join me
in celebrating this wondrous New Year,
filled with limitless possibilities and dreams come true.

Look for some exciting news in forthcoming shows...
and stay tuned for new leading-edge paintings.

Magic and miracles are in store this year!
