New Work

In this piece I am using sand, stone and soil that I collected from my father's garden in South Jersey. This is a little different conceptually, to connect the material used in a painting to a specific place, and one full of meaning. Having a garden is a tradition in my family that goes back to my grandfathers here in America and before that in Italy. Father's Garden 2, 12x24 inches, mixed mediums on canvas, 2007.
