For years I’ve wanted to paint faces. Here is the new series. The Gilded. Available on Singulart, clic on each image to go to the page. They are graced by the limelight, the divine light, or just too cool to pass up. These works are india ink and gilding on canvas, Black, White and Gold. Let me know what you think. I believe they have that universal quality I’ve been searching for. A boutique hotel needs these. Everyone who has seen them is wow-ed.
If you are a fan of the Netflix series the Bridgerton, stay tuned. Angie adored the Duke of Hastings, and those wigs that Queen Charlotte sported could have held a bee hive.
The gilding on these pieces makes them interactive, they reflect everything, but they don’t listen to you. They seem to light up when the sun goes down. The eyes of the Golden Yogi Sadhu seem to stare at you no matter how far to the side of the canvas you are. I wouldn’t be surprised if he had eyes in the back of his head. Milady Hilda has got secrets. And she’s dying to let you know. She’s sassy. I asked my girlfriends what to name her, we had a great laugh but I won’t tell you what we said. It’s a secret. James is looking down his nose. That doesn’t mean anything, maybe his top hat is too big. Sugar Daddy is cool. And Peter Jackson was world famous boxer who was born a free man in the late 1800’s.
The last few months in my atelier were dedicated to painting the Parisian Cafe. All of the cafes and restaurants in all of France were closed for months. No one was sitting at a cafe. It was surreal. These paintings celebrate. The iconic Parisian cafe life. To purchase > go to my Singulart page.
I just love French pastries. They are edible sculptures. When I first moved to Paris, Wayne Thibault popped into mind every time I walked into a bakery. Colourful little cakes lined up to greet me and ask me for a date. These seven macarons are lined up to greet you every morning with your coffee.

Did you notice? She has two right hands. This was painted live, in Paris when I was on my lunch break from teaching English. I am happy that is in the past, it was fun for a while and a great experience. The cafe was on Avenue de Ternes. That’s a big busy street that goes straight west to La Defense.
