I feel good fortune being able to exhibit this larger painting titled “The Tomb of Charles Baudelaire” during the month of April at Sandra Lee Gallery, 251 Post St, Suite 310, SF, 94108. This painting’s title is from a favorite line in a poem by Mallarme. Both Baudelaire and Mallarme were Imagist poets (along with symbolists and also Baudelaire perhaps being more well-known as an art critic/writer and philosopher. I experience affinity with these lines of thinking and so when I painted this work discovering the white calla lilies, I felt an attribution was in order for the title.

I hope you can come by to see – the reception is April 4th from 5:30 – 7:30 and the exhibition runs
