Giving Thanks…

 

Over the past few days I have spent some time reflecting upon all of the wonderful people, opportunities and new relationships in my life this year. 

I am deeply grateful for the continued support of my collectors and fans, the love of my friends and family, and to all of those encouraging me and my artwork along the way. 

In particular this year, I would like to give special thanks to:

Emily Amy, William Bonnette, David Brewster, Maria and Stephen Cussen, Tim Geiss,

      Laurie Griffin,  Wendy Life,  Kim and Eric Nilsen,  Caitlin Nisos,  Chris Roberts,

                  Rob and Katherine Silvan,  Bruce and Linda Tingle, and Doug Trump…  

Thank you so much for your enthusiasm, support and encouragement !

Update:”Pink”: Benefit for the Susan G. Komen Foundation

 

Many of you have been curious about the outcome of the “Pink” fundraiser for the

 Susan G. Komen Foundation

held in Atlanta on November 14th at 

SOHO MYRIAD 

 

I have just heard today that the event was a great success, and that my piece

Still Waters Dawn, 2008

sold at auction for nearly double the minimum bid!

 

Thank you for your interest in and support of the cause.   

And a great, big, pink THANK YOU to the, (as-yet-unknown- to- me), winner/collector!

In Memory of Grace Hartigan

Grace Hartigan died on Saturday the 15th of November, at the age of 86.  The New York Times released an obituary, with highlights of her life and career. Hartigan is an artist I admire for her bravery as well as her talent.  Imagine being reduced to tears by the likes of Willem de Kooning, and having the courage to continue! Is there anything more disheartening than dismissal? Thank you Grace, for not buckling when encountering an art-world bully, and thank you for giving us all the gift of your art.
