I am so honored! My friend Caroline Gunston, who is completing her art degree in the UK, chose to include and write beautifully about my paintings in her “research log” of works that inspire her! Thank you once again Caroline!

I just finished taking part in Single Fare 4, a highly anticipated show of 7000 works on MetroCards to benefit the New York Academy of Art in NYC. I had 5 works in the show and I am thrilled that all 5 were purchased by collectors and are going to new homes:
I am truly honored and excited that my painting "Carried Forward" (pg 82) was selected for inclusion in this latest issue of PoetsArtists Magazine, entitled Family / La Familia. The magazine is beautifully produced by Didi Menendez, expertly curated by David Jon Kassan and Shana Levenson, with an excellent forward written by Daniel Maidman. There are a number of my most highly admired contempory painters included. My painting represents how the experiences and values of our ancestors, family and friends light our way forward, propelling us to fight for each other and what we know is right. Support PoetsArtists and download it here ($10) and/or follow the link to the preview and printed issue ($35). Find it here: Poets and Artists Magaizine Family Edition

Here are each of the works:
