Tulip Fields I (How I Wish You Were Here)

 12x12", acrylic on canvas

I thought that it would be fun to paint kinda abstract colorful stripes. What better way than to paint rows upon rows of tulips? 
This as well as it's mate are available at my newly opened Etsy shop!

Here are a few detail shots:

Mapping Intelligence in the Brain

A new study by University of Illinois neuroscience professor, Aaron Barbey, has enlisted 182 veterans with brain injury to explore the connections and roles between different parts of injured and non-injured brain.

"We found that general intelligence depends on a remarkably circumscribed neural system. Several brain regions, and the connections between them, were most important for general intelligence.
In fact, the particular regions and connections we found support an emerging body of neuroscience evidence indicating that intelligence depends on the brain's ability to integrate information from verbal, visual, spatial and executive processes. [These findings will] open the door to further investigations into the biological basis of intelligence, exploring how the brain, genes, nutrition and the environment together interact to shape the development and continued evolution of the remarkable intellectual abilities that make us human."

Current Exhibit--Fred S. Piper Gallery, Lexington MA

Piper Gallery, Lexington MA

For the month of April, my work is being exhibited in the Piper Gallery at Cary Memorial Library in Lexington, MA.  Lexington is one of my favorite local small towns. Beautiful colonial architecture, coupled with a small town feel and a wonderful bike path all make this a town that I would not hesitate to live in. 

The library fits in well. It has a kind of open floor plan, and kind of reminds me of a large bookstore. The staff is very friendly and incredibly helpful.

Fifty Springs

Fifty Springs
"Fifty Springs", 24 x 30", acrylic on canvas

The title comes from a poem by E.A. Housman

  II. Loveliest of trees, the cherry now 
LOVELIEST of trees, the cherry now
Is hung with bloom along the bough,
And stands about the woodland ride
Wearing white for Eastertide.
Now, of my threescore years and ten,        5
Twenty will not come again,
And take from seventy springs a score,
It only leaves me fifty more.
And since to look at things in bloom
Fifty springs are little room,        10
About the woodlands I will go
To see the cherry hung with snow.

 Please contact me for purchase information.

How do you turn what others would consider junk into a masterpiece?
Rhode Island-based Thomas Deininger does it.

He used many items, including teddy bears and SpongeBob to recreate a Monet painting in 3D.
