Marty, Kristen, and I worked on designing the most fabulous book on The Italian Suite.
The book is being published by Blurb in two versions:
one hardbound 11" h x 13" w
one softbound cover 8" h x 11" w
both books will have over 55 paintings in full color and an opening statement by me and essay by Rusty Freeman, Curator of Cedarhurst Center for the Arts.
It is a gorgeous book -- thanks to the diligent direction of Marty, and the amazing designing eye and hand of Kristen.
I will carry samples of both books at the opening of the exhibition and a chance for you to place your orders too.
The painting I included here is a long lost painting from when I was in graduate school. It is an acrylic on paper-- based on the inspiration I felt from seeing CHRISTO'S wrapped islands in Biscayne Bay in 1983. It was a wonderful thing to see such a massive installation from a famous artist!
This piece BISCAYNE BLUE- started my whole series on basing work around my love of Florida. It has been a rich roll of imagery for me -- one that I still work on today!
