Miro & the Dragon

Commissioned by the parents of a favorite, long-term art student of  mine, Miro & the Dragon is 16" x 16" painted with Liquitex acrylic gouache on gesso board in a wood stained cradle board frame. The painting was completed in April 2021.

Dinosaurs and Rockets

Dinosaurs and Rockets is a set of designs featured in the Massachusetts-based newspaper The Montague Reporter’s special wrapping paper edition. I was chosen as one artist among seven artists to create special festive wrapping paper for the holidays. The idea was was inspired by the writings of the late great Science Fiction and Fantasy author Ray Bradbury.  The wrapping paper includes six different dinosaurs riding rocket ships and spacecraft inspired by ‘50s-‘70s coin operated kids rides, often found outside of dime stores.

Franklin County CDC Farm Mural

From September through early October, I created a farming-themed mural for the Franklin County Community Development Corporation. This 3-sided, 6ft. x 11ft. mural was an amazingly fun project to do, and I am very thankful to The CDC for offering me the job and supporting the arts in Massachusetts.

Celtic Mythological Paintings 

I finished a large painting in "In the Woods, One Morning." Measuring 5ft. x3ft., it was painted with acrylic gouache on canvas. This highly detailed work was painted over the course of four months. It is one painting in a large group Celtic mythological-themed paintings, that should be ready to exhibit, when the world returns to some sense of normality and galleries are open again.

Pollinator Trail Bee Sculpture

Celtic Bee

In April 2020, I completed painting a fiberglass bee for the proposed Greenfield Pollinators Trail. In Celtic myth, bees were regarded as having great wisdom and acted as emissaries between worlds, able to travel to the Otherworld, bringing back messages from the gods.

UPDATE: This Bees will have their official unveiling in Greenfield MA, on May 22, 2021.
