Happy Summer Solstice! Once I did this and exhibited a few of these at the Los Angeles College Art Association Exchange exhibition. As you can see, there is one original painting, with an adjacent print of the same work, and then a digital image. The set is titled “opening”.
Since covid has shut the world down from travel, these reference that experience of relying on memory and photographs and the wish to travel again. I wonder what lack of global exchange will do to us? 12 x 18″, oil on archival paper. Not all are titled. And they are not all dry yet. But sharing anyway 🙂 — with Kathryn_Arnold in San Francisco, California
“Art for AIDS 2020 Live Auction | Action is here! More silver screen than blue and definitely not a boring Zoom event. All bidding is open now! The Big Show is Saturday at 7:00PM – 8:00PM. Tune in early to catch the opening shenanigans we put our leadership through. Get your drinks and mobile devices set up, watch the show on the big screen and have some fun!”
This one going out into the world, titled ‘ 2 summers ago’ (one of these images a detail…full size work around 61 x 84″) , didn’t think about it when determining the title but seeing experiencing metaphor (with the language/ nostalgia/ looking back ).
sf yesterday even though ‘opened up’ ghost town no traffic, very few people, and no one i know . Took walk around / i swear if one stays in one has no idea how the world is/ the news doesn’t quite do it although important.
Businesses boarded up, the dismal toll,
awareness the sadness and grief being expressed just down the street and all over the world overwhelming real, valid .
all within the field of the ongoing and increasing pandemic.
when i hear helicopters i want to duck and cover but there is nowhere to go.
it’s not the sf i used to know. but maybe it is/ just uncovered…

My exhibition in Oakland at Manna Gallery (group exhibition) was affected by the shelter in place order. We were able to have the opening the first Friday in march/ yay!! but the gallery had to close its doors soon after. Mark Lightfoot the director made this great video walkthrough. 🙏😀 Please contact him if you are interested in any of the works. I have a few of my ‘the poet’ series up with a few of my ‘after diebenkorn’ series. Hope you enjoy!! More soon.
