Cue Foundation Silent Auction

I wanted to post a quick and really exciting update. On November 10th, one of my paintings will be part of the Cue Foundation's Annual Silent Auction. I donated a piece last year as well. The Cue Foundation is an excellent organization, and I feel privileged to be an auction supporter.

Here is a blurb about the organization:
CUE Art Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit forum for contemporary art that provides extraordinary opportunities for under-recognized artists and compelling encounters for audiences. CUE gives artists, students, scholars and art professionals resources at many stages of their careers and creative lives. We also offer comprehensive arts education programs for artists and students, and interdisciplinary arts events for public audiences from our large storefront venue located in the heart of New York City’s Chelsea Arts District.

I was also pleasantly surprised to see my name next to some very important people on the invite, so I thought I would share it!

YEAH!!! If that isn't enough excitement, you can visit the link to see some of the silent auction pieces on their website. Or if you still want a little more, I will post a blurry photo of a new painting in progress.

If the image looks familiar, it because it is the previous incarnation of this photo.

New Painting Update

This blog entry is dedicated to my amazing husband, Marc Stone, who agreed to go out of town two weekends ago without me to give me time to paint away towards some looming deadlines. This is a big deal and the painting time was greatly appreciated, something about being alone really allows me to get down to brass tacks and paint. The LOOMING which I referred to is AWESOME, and I will be posting soon about the deadlines...but I want to keep a sense of suspense. So in the meantime, checkout some of the new work that I have made during and since that weekend. I painted my brother with a gun in one, the painting is based on a photo of the same subject, but the decision surprised me after the fact. I think there is nothing like the act of creating that suspends judgement and produces surprising results. I am curious to hear what he thinks about it, as we are both not gun people these days.
