Merry Christmas!

There's nothing like being home with my family for Christmas! Everything is so festive and there is nothing but good times and laughs all around. Wishing you and your family a happy holiday!



Went with Barbara to the Italian deli in town to get Christmas meats, cheeses, and breads! Thought these dried sausages looked funny yet beautiful in all their hanging glory.

I had such a great time at the show last night! It was great to meet and chat with the other exhibiting artists and catch up with friends. The show had some really beautiful and interesting work and there was a great turn out, with lots of crazy characters! The whole night just had a great feeling to it, and the weather couldn't have been better.  I look forward to having more nights like this one...

If you weren't able to make it last night, the show will be up until January 15th -- go and stop by and check it out in person! For more information: www.daciagallery.com


Kiss for Rachel completed!

Finally put the finishing touches on this painting today and I'm so pleased with the way it turned out. It was nice to work on this small piece and take a break from the paintings I've been working on which are going in a looser and more abstract direction. Sometimes it's nice to have a balance of both tight and loose work just to keep things fresh and interesting. I have to say I'm a little sad to see this one go but I know that it will have a good home somewhere in Rachel's room (which is 5 feet away from my own room at this point in time)! I hope she gets just as much joy out of it as I did making it for her.

**If you find yourself really wanting a painting like this for your own wall, feel free to email me as I'm up for taking on commissions!**


Sunset in Midtown

I caught this from a window in my office building today. I feel lucky to get such a nice view everyday.. being on the 30th floor has its perks!


Unexpected beauty

Went for a walk with Barbara yesterday and found this boarded up restaurant that has been closed for years. Despite it looking pretty dilapidated on the outside, the way the sun was shining through the lace curtains was both eerie and beautiful.
