ON a bright note, let us celebrate Spring, but not forget those of us who have lost a family member or relative in this pandemic. I have had the vaccine twice ( applause ), but I know there are many who have not, or choose not to ( and I guess they have their reasons! ). Now, I am in a transition away from being a Professor in the College of Art & Design at Rochester Institute of Technology, and I have some time to reflect on this season, as well as write about artists and their artwork again.
We are looking for inspiration as the weather trends towards warmth and daylight hangs around a bit longer. We can still wear a mask in a public space and we hope to return to "normal" soon. One can even allow oneself to venture into a museum or art gallery. While I have been sequestered working on my new art book, it will soon be published under the title of: "WheelHouse", and I will have more to say about that in a future post. Creating a book like this has been a four year project, and it will contain a selection of my paintings and prints from the last dozen years or so.
