Long Series Collaboration with Phillip J. Mellen. Phillip has provided me with a number poems, lines of text, and some drawn material. I find it interesting that I’m working with a figurative motif for the paintings I’m working on at the moment.
An introduction can be a wonderful thing. You can meet interesting people, and make new friends. You can be introduced to your new favorite foods, books, music, or artist.
I’d like to introduce you to some of my favorite artists. Some of whom I’ve been familiar with for years, and others I’ve only recently been introduced to.
The person I’d like to introduce is the artist Mary DeVincentis.

“A man bending down to bite the earth, the shimmer of a tiny plane sailing through a painterly sky, a solitary duck gliding across a lake of rippling brushstrokes and an open hand holding a flower invite the viewer to enter the moment. From the the translucent layering of watercolor paint on a grid of teabags to the expressive immediacy of ink on paper and paint on panel, I celebrate the stillness within movement and the mystery of existence.” MD
