Single Fare 3

There is a really fun show happening next month in NYC!! The Single Fare 3 exhibition at the RH Gallery, NYC, opening February 13, 2013.  

Here is the info..

A big show of small works on MetroCards.

OPENING: February 13, 2013 6pm - 9pm

Following the tremendous success of “Single Fare 2,” Michael Kagan, Jean-Pierre Roy and RH Gallery are pleased to announce “Single Fare 3,” an exhibition of artwork on New York City MTA MetroCards. Inspired by the notion that the city’s subways and buses allow for a kind of creative interchange unmatched in human history, the first “Single Fare” sought to create a unique art event where art and artists could come together to form a monumental event made from a tiny, innocuous piece of plastic: The MetroCard! Single Fare 3 promises to deliver an even more exciting exhibition with more art, more artists and new ways to view and enjoy the work.

Open call for submissions:

Due date for submissions: FEB 3, 201

It's been very fun and interesting painting this small... and a little additive.. and I think I am learning and getting better as I go..  Google search Single Fare 3 and see what other people have done.. Some are absolutely amazing!!!
Here are some of my cards..

Facing Fifty

On Friday of this week, I turn 50 years old!.  I don't feel "50".. not even sure what that is supposed to feel like.  Most days I don't think about it, and when I do, I feel like the same awkward, outsider girl I was in high school and I certainly don't feel like a "grown up" even though I have lived this long and have raised children to adulthood.  So to record this milestone in my life, I painted a self portrait.  I wanted it to be a little naked and raw.  No makeup, no hair style, no jewelry, with the scars and wrinkles I've earned along the way.  Just me, reflecting on getting to this point in my life.

Mooooving right along!

I have been working hard on glass paintings for the Contemporary Realism show in March, but Saturday I felt the need to break out a bit.  So I went through my thousands of reference photos and found this old girl asking for a portrait. I had the best time painting her!

one more doll painting... for now

I finished this painting at the end of last year and have to be done with my doll paintings for a month or two.  I have lots more that I am looking forward to painting, but I will be focusing on getting work done for the Contemporary Realism show at the Hammond Harkins Gallery, opening March 8, 2013!
