Back in the studio

Yes, you are looking at more of the work in progress on my Constellation Series. Yes, I have been working on this since the winter. It's been taking me a while to figure out how I want to exhibit this series, but today I hit the studio for the first time in a while and decided to add color to these 30" x 40" sheets. Yes, that is metallic silver paint you are seeing.

Today I also visited "Sticky Vinyl Man" to pick up another load of scraps for our summer program at the ACA. I just like calling him "sticky vinyl man", but his real name is Henry. Thanks, Henry!

Thanks, too, to all my fellow artist bloggers. If it weren't for you guys, I would be much more of a slacker where this blog is concerned. Such pressure!

As I work for Golden Paints, much of my teaching revolves around helping students understand the versatility of the medium and what all those different products actually can do for them.

Appetite  - four day exhibition in Melrose, MA featuring my work and my friends Patti Brady and Catherine Bertulli.

Lisa Crossman, Ph.D., Curator - Fitchburg Art Museum, had this to say about Appetite  
Appetite begins with instinct and results in vibrant, playful excess. Catherine Bertulli hosts the artist-organized pop-up exhibit in her large studio in Melrose, MA. Each artist toys with the seduction of the surface such as the draw of bright colors. Bertulli’s monumental towers are impressive illusions, shimmering columns of gold, turquoise and other brilliant tints. They are eye-catching objects. Yet the aniline dyes are fugitive­­–presenting only impermanent effects–and they are hollow, only a shell of architecture. Adria Arch’s palette too confesses her interest in forcing the unexpected through experimentation–freezing a mark in time and then responding to it, and intuitively combining fields of color with shapes and patterns. Her paintings are pleasurable in their leg…
