I think this will be the last in Mail Chimp. I am getting much more familiar with Constant Contact through work and it is much easier to use. So I will need to start over in gathering subscribers, but hopefully all 14 of my current ones will rejoin. I promise it will be better than ever!
I hope this Holiday Season finds you as well as possible. We have had quite a ride this year and it is far from over. Stay safe at home and take good care of yourselves and your families. Keep in touch!

In the winter of 2000-2001, I was beginning preparation of my MFA thesis art show at Hunter College in New York City. Struggling with my painting let alone coming up with a thesis, I tried to remember the things I loved the most, that made up me. That’s when I knew music had to play a big role and then I realized it could give me the whole structure of my show. Thinking about one my first favorite records, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club band, I connected it to one of my first favorite places, the Antiquarium. This was a used book store, art gallery, record store that acted as a “lonely hearts club” on a regular basis. I had collected records from a young age and it occurred to me I could use them as the physical structure for my painting. This would allow me to work on a massive series and try a wide variety of mediums and techniques, while remaining a cohesive whole. I took it further and built record display bins, a sales counter, posters, a listening area with a mix tape, and a display wall. Here are some photos from that show as I look back once again, trying to remember what I love and who I am.
