“Flora and Fauna” Solo Show Sep 16-22

I am pleased to announce “Flora and Fauna”, my solo exhibition of paintings at the Meyer Gallery in Santa Fe. Please join us for the opening reception tomorrow, Friday, September 16 at 5 – 7 p.m. The show runs through the 22nd.

In exploring the many varieties of ‘flora’ and ‘fauna’, I drew inspiration from 17th Century Dutch flower painting’s sumptuous beauty. The symbolism of flowers may speak of constancy, unrequited love, and the ephemeral nature of beauty itself. I continue to expand the role of animals in my works by looking back into the menagerie in Jean-Baptiste Oudry’s paintings. I believe companion animals reflect the inner desires, jealousies, kindnesses and hurts of their human guardians.

I would like to thank all the wonderful supporters and collectors of my paintings as well as the great staff at Meyer Gallery for the pre-sales and their continuing support. There are still a handful of paintings available. Please contact the gallery for details.

Dorabella
“Dorabella” 12×9 inches, oil on panel @ Meyer Gallery, Park City SOLD

I’ve always loved the name “Dorabella.” I was painting this while listening to Mozart’s opera “Cosi Fan Tutte” ~ and it was natural to name this piece “Dorabella” after one of the characters. I think that “Dorabella” means “beautiful” (bella) “gift” (dora.)

The Smoker with Wings
“The Smoker with Wings” 12×9 inches, oil on panel @ Meyer Gallery, Park City SOLD
