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!

Artist and Illustrator

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.

What do you think?

I'd love your thoughts and impressions
