Fallow Fields

Since my two shows have closed, I have done very little in the studio, except organizing, class prep and preparations for my upcoming trip to India.

I am relishing my time with my girls, Merry and Bridgit, pictured here with me on the beach examining a wonderful driftwood assemblage.

(Edra Soto, myself, Jeroen Nelemans and Ryan Richey) and (f)utility projects (Paola Cabal, Mike Genge, and Chris Grieshaber), curator Annie Morse, and Glass Curtain's Director Neysa Paige Lieberman and Curator Mark Porter were content.

Wendy Jacob

My friend Wendy Jacob's exhibit opens September 17 at the MFA Boston.

She is a highly discerning and inventive artist and a great inspiration to me.

Here is her piece from 2007 with a tight rope walker at MIT

Letting Paint do the Painting

I saw the movie Cave of Forgotten Dreams lately. The paintings felt so real, immediate and freshly executed, the painter's hand so present. I was very moved. One of the scientists working on imaging the cave related an anecdote about an aboriginal painter who was invited to restore some paleolithic paintings in another location. He was asked why he painted. He answered, I don't paint, the spirit paints through me.
