 This is Fall 2020 here in NY, we had exciting colors out there and especially on sunny days you could wonder how this is all possible....Now most of the trees are bare, here and there a few last remnants of colors.

I feel lucky for our good health, for the opportunity of getting my chance to sketch, draw


and Paint again.

Some of my local friends keep the connection, the tradition, the zoom support. Here are some recent work.

Acrylic


Still Life(fiber)

I am busy with a new series of Sunflowers that brings me light and happy moments.

Downtown Ossining.
Aqueduct




June is my favorite month, you guessed it: my birthday, summer, sunshine, long days and plenty of light.
My show at the Ossining library side gallery is just virtual as we are in an unusual time due to Covid 19 Virus....
I wish you could come and see the work in person.







In the meantime I will try and attach a google slide show...I am so challenged when it comes to navigating technology. Until then here are a few of my latests.

Happy 2020!
My blog is 10 years old, wow,
I am grateful for being able to create art, and exhibit in my area.
During October 2019 I had a solo show in Mount Kisco Library showing my large art quilts,
and during December had a solo show in Warner Library in Tarrytown NY with smaller pieces. It is a nice way of showing local art to the community. Lately I have been enjoying working on a series.

Working in a series enabled me to explore different ways of  expressing ideas.
The top drawing is from 1975 quill pen and ink.
the bottom is fabric and thread: "Crossroads", 35Wx23L (inches)

This is Fall 2019,
I feel very lucky that I participated in 3 exhibitions simultaneously this month:
One was a group show of Ossining Artists:OAC: "Think Big" with my Quilt:"Preservation". It has a combination of traditional style quilting with free art quilting.
Second is my solo exhibit of 12 large works in Mount Kisco Library, Oct3-30, 2019.
Third is a FANE ( Fiber Art Northeast) group at the Mahopac Library:"Signature Style".
and another at Somers Library with "Alphabetica". so actually 4!

Summer is definitely here; hot, sweaty, mosquitos, but on the other hand the pleasure of enjoying beautiful flowers, and swimming !
I was so lucky this year to create new fiber art and to participate in several shows:
My quilt "Forrest Veil" was entered and accepted into the SAQA theme show "Musica", which will tour to some venues starting with the National quilt museum in Paduka in March 2020. I am so honored!
I will participate in the  Art show at Howland Center in Beacon NY this Aug 2020.
Here is one of the Ruby challenge quilts to celebrate 40 years of my Guild in Westchester NY: Northern Star Quilt Guild:
"Wild Iris".

first year of retirement.

Hi,
It seems like my first year into retirement went by so fast!
I had many plans to travel and create new quilts. I feel I am lucky. I got to visit Tucson during the Gem Show which was great, and then traveled to Israel. In between I got to work on and complete some fun quilts.
Seeing my family and friends in Israel, hiking and seeing some amazing beauty in nature was so inspiring and filled my batteries with new ideas and energy.
