Paintings in Public Settings

 The environment frequently determines the visual impact on the viewer. Where something is seen often determines the value and viability of art. Location, location, location.

Paintings in their Home Settings

I have always believed that the viewer is an integral part of the painting process. The environment also inserts itself on the paintings visual effect.  Though the painting remains the same, each visual effect is as individual as it's owners. Below are a few paintings in their home settings.

Family Trees

Family Trees are sets of painted canvas blocks that together make up an  impressionistic image of a tree. Singularly, the blocks stand alone as a part of the tree, each piece retaining the essence of the tree, while the whole gives the essence and image. Family Trees are exhibited as an entire tree, or separated into 'branches' of the tree (if separated, family member, friends, people with commonalities can each have a branch of the tree, while still being a part of the larger tree).
The original family tree was the 21 piece, Cherry Blossom montage. Rather than going to an individual family, Cherry Blossom montage resides with the worlds family. Individual canvas blocks now reside in numerous homes and institutions around the US and the world, including,  Pennsylvania, New York, Florida, California and Tokyo.

Thank you to all who made these shows successful events. It is through the support of collectors, patrons, galleries, museums and critics that I am able to continue in my art world. It is through the joy of viewers that I thrive.
