East Hampton Cove - More AND Less!

This morning, before set-up began for the show at Amagansett, I took a spin around East Hampton, NY, where I'm staying. I drove past the house where Jackson Pollock lived with Lee Krasner during Pollock's most productive, most amazing years. 

Down the street, I found a dead-end road with a beautiful view and room to park the big van. 

In light of my newest paintings, Beach Houses and Neighbors, I decided to try a minimal painting AND a maximum painting... one with almost no paint and one with a lot of paint. It was fun! 

Above, the minimal painting in the landscape. Below, the maximum painting in the landscape. 

HERE'S MY BOOTH in Amagansett. I think it looks pretty good!

The show, by the bye, is amazing. The quality of the work is beyond any show I've been in. I'm honored and just plain excited to be with these artists! If you're on Long Island, or know anyone who is, send them out to Amagansett. The show is on the grounds of the the American Legion Hall, at the intersection of Route 27 and Abraham's Path.


Dog of the Day

His name is Frank, and he's one of the friendliest dogs ever. He can also sniff out lunch about a mile away. He tried to get some of my lunch, tried to get in my van, licked me all over (sorry, JoJo!) and then went off to get lunch from another artist.

ah, Shea, how GREAT to hear from you! And thank you for the comment. I am having so much fun, and I am so grateful to have been given this gift and this opportunity.

I'm looking forward to your next film, or painting, or whatever creative venture you turn your talent toward next. I hope you're well and happy these days.
