I've missed myself too- you know what I mean. I have been needing to 'prove' myself at work with the new job and little focus has been dedicated to my art. (There were many lovely moments..but...)

So not only am I so excited to have broken this trend this past week, but for me I am embarking on an awesome journey. I have always wanted to create canvas that curves, and as you know I have always used tape. I have now combined the two and many other two's in my life. (My left and right sides, etc.)

I am very happy to post these although the images of the work is pretty miserable but you will get an idea until the right light comes tomorrow.

I think I'm titling it 'moth' or 'moth effect.' (The lighting is best when one sees the work on the outside of a builging with natural light. There is however, a view of it from the inside as the ground is transparent.) It is roughly one meter by one meter and a blow up of one of my small figures. It is oils on contact paper!

NYFA MARK program this weekend

As I posted last week, I've been accepted to the NYFA MARK program, which is this weekend.

As I understand, it's designed to help artists with other aspects of their practice - things outside the studio...I'll keep you posted.

I'm interested and curious to meet other artists from the area, and hopefully get practical advice from a different pool of non-workshoppers. It will be a first for me, and I'm open. Perhaps something magical will happen, perhaps nothing will happen. I will let you know.

Please post pictures of your paintings - I will do the same. My exhibition just ended, and I'm going now to pick up the paintings. One is going to be lent on consignment to a friend; the other two will return to my studio.

I miss you!
Having such fun painting!(More playful than ever!) Pics to follow...

I took Ale to the Met for the first time today, to see one of Rembrandt's self portraits - on loan from Europe.

And this also happened

My first acceptance letter in a very long time:

Dear Angela,

I am very pleased to notify you that you have been accepted to participate in NYFA MARK Bootcamp, Mid-Capital/Hudson region. The New York Foundation for the Arts’ professional development program for artists living in New York State.

We are really excited to have such a talented group of artists joining us at our partner organizations in Woodstock and Hudson.

If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to get in touch with me.

Congratulations again and I look forward to meeting you in person soon!

Best wishes,


exhibition opening

Everything is changed and nothing has changed.

I am installing five of my most recent paintings in a group exhibition that opens on Saturday. The announcement is above. There are seven artists in the show, all of whom are women.

We've transformed an empty storefront in a historic district of Kingston, NY into a gallery that will be open for three weekends only. It's been interesting so far to work with the other artists on this project. All of our work is very different, and yet it exists quite well in relation to one another. As far as I can tell, everyone is excited about it.

On a personal note, I am relieved to be exhibiting again.
It's been a long time since I've felt like I've had anything of merit to share with the world.
This is inspiring me to continue working, to stay the course, to deepen my understanding of what I'm doing (or what I think I'm doing)

I will post images of the opening and the show as it unfolds.
