Kabocha Squash

Oil on Canvas, 14 x 10 inches.

Winnetka, CA, November 4, 2017.

Perhaps Wallace Stevens was moved by ‘A Dish of Peaches in Russia’ in the same way I was by the Kabocha Squash, for being “full of the colors of my village / And of fair weather, summer, dew, peace.”

I loved the Christmas Show at Galería Gitana which gave me an opportunity to show my “Kabocha Squash.” I was so proud that it was selected Best of Show by Scott Kiche, a painter I deeply admire!

I love this gallery and I surely had the perfect painting to fit its annual theme.  Had a blast meeting up with artists i revere and loved the chance to meet some new ones.  

The shows are always so professionally arranged and in a lovely setting in the San Fernando Valley.  Thank you all for coming and making my night!

I am drawn to the light of the natural world. I love to get out there where I can meet my subject face to face in its native hues. My aim is to recapture that feeling of connectedness with all living things through the act of painting.
