New additions to  the “Cloaked” series.

Lots to say, this post…

These paintings are intriguing and confounding me.  Many attempts live under layers of grounding gray, waiting for a new painting to appear on the surface. The layered images are indeed cloaked;)  I’m not even certain that all of the images above will survive.  I’m giving them some time…  I’m after a particular trepidatious quality in a painting that actually “works”.

For a while now, I’ve been experiencing a pinched nerve in my back, so sitting at the easel and at the computer is uncomfortable. The easel is priority one, so blogging has been and will be spotty at best.  The upshot is that I’m not able to visit your blogs as often as I’d like, and I’m sorry about that.

Also, I’d like to provide a link to Six and Crows.  Some of my paintings have been paired with fine poetry and a really terrific blog.

One last thing. I’m terribly excited that one of my “Cloaked”, “Persistence of Vision” to be specific, is being shown at the Crane Arts Gallery 105 in Philadelphia as part of the “Old Enough to Know Better” exhibit!  The show is presented by Woman’s Caucus for Art, Philadelphia Chapter.
