This blog traces my influences, studio practice, learning, and teaching of art.


Teaching painting to young girls in the Berkshires was a joy and a very energizing experience. Belvoir Terrace is a performing arts center/camp, if you can call staying a stone's throw away from Tanglewood "camping". The dance instructor allowed me to take photos of the ballet class. Kelly Hess stood out. She had "It". This was painted back in Cleveland in from photographs.
