1ST VIce President's Award



This is Mechanical Staccato & Scotch, oil on linen, representational painting of an elegant vintage typewriter from the 1920s. The title is taken from a Hemingway poem wherein he extols his appreciation for the "mechanical staccato" of his beloved typewriter. I can imagine that when he is "in the zone" writing, it's comforting as well as empowering to hear that tap-clicking. Since Hemingway was in the air, a glass of scotch fit in perfectly! I was very happy that this painting was accepted to the AWA show... and thrilled to learn it received the Outstanding Still Life Award!




"East Meets West" received the second highest prize at New Member Show at the  prestigious Salmagundi Art Club of New York. What an honor!

"Who Knows Where the Time Goes" casts a glance back on ancestors including a classic baby shoe, photo of the original wearer, a friends great grandfather. The hour glass is standing by to mark the passage of time. I'm honored that this painting was recognized at the President's Show.
