Since I retired from teaching art in the Queensbury school system (35-½ years) in 2001 I have been creating paintings at the rate of one per month and a half, with time off for those busy times like November and December. Some years have been more productive and some years have been less productive. One thing is clear, though, I am still painting after 18 years.
I have worked my way through many different areas of subject matter.
Lately I have been involved in creating images of different foods. The food paintings started out as a joke and then grew into focused still lifes. That is, the food has been taken out of the still life and been given star billing. I have also been creating small collages of tinfoil that I then turn into larger paintings. They are realistic but look abstract. I thought I would like to focus on those two subjects for this show and then throw in a few off-topic paintings that are recent but don’t fit any category similar to the others. That’s why I call this show “Food and Foil Paintings, et.al.”
