"Tousled" Limited Edition canvas giclee with Artist Embellishment

"Tousled" (24" x 48") Limited Edition Canvas Giclee with Artist Embellishment
I'm so excited to present a new line of limited edition giclee prints that I've hand embellished. I paint on a limited amount of giclees to create the closest possible likeness to the original. Once the paint is dried I then apply an extra varnish to protect the piece which is finally signed and numbered. These pieces are considered original prints, since no two are the same.

Daffodil Day - April 10th

Daffodil Day at the Reeves-Reed Arboretum is April 10th and less than two weeks away! We in Northeastern USA are very anxious for spring. We have had an unusually brutal winter with snow still on the ground and have yet to put away our winter wear. That said, spring is ever faithful and will not disappoint us. At the Reeves-Reed Arboretum in Summit, NJ the daffodils are on track to make their annual event not one to miss! Come join us April 10th (1-4pm).

About the Daffodil Bowl
The  Arboretum’s paved serpentine walk overlooks a roll of land ending in a glacial bowl that each year hosts over 30,000 daffodils blooming sequentially throughout April in this naturalized setting. The bowl or kettle is a depression that remained after the Wisconsin glacier retreated some 17,000 years ago. The Wisner’s (first owners) planted daffodils on the property, but when the Reeves purchased The Clearing (name of the property before it became Reeves-Reed Arboretum) in 1916, it was Susie Reeves who expanded the collection. The daffodils constitute the first major spring display that prompts the steady flow of visitors throughout the Arboretum growing season.

"Women Impressionists and Myself"

In honor of  Women's History Month, yesterday I presented, "Women Impressionists & Myself" at the Reeves Reed Arboretum, Summit, NJ.  My lecture coincides with my solo exhibition, "Impressions of a Garden."  I don't often have an opportunity to speak in a public venue about the Grande Dames of Impressionism and how they continue to inspired me, so this was a real treat! 

The Four women considered the center of the Impressionist movement of the late 1800’s are Berthe Morisot, Mary Cassatt, Eva Gonzales, and  Marie Bracquemond. Not only did these women have to over come a new movement , Impressionism, but they had to overcome being a woman and all that it meant at that time. 

"Sleepy Baby" (c) Mary Cassatt 1910

In this beginning of a new century where modern woman artists are an equal force to the men gender in the art world, the example of Mary Cassatt who insisted on painting women as subjects and not objects remains highly significant. The most charming part of Cassatt's story was her profound dedication to her work. Despite prejudices against female painters she still had the perseverance to realize her life's ambition of being an artist. This paved the way for the prominence of female artists in the 20th Century and to present day.

"Impressions of a Garden" will be on view at the Wisner House till May 8th, 2001. 

Mark your calendars for Daffodil Day, April 10th.. Reeves Reed Arboretum

I just finished these small mini paintings of hummingbirds actually they are all Ruby-Throated hummingbirds. What fun it was to paint these little creatures!!! Yes, they are only 3.5 inches long, only weigh 1/8 oz and move very quickly in fact many of us haven't seen them in detail.  Both male and female sport brillant color especially the well loved, Ruby-Throated which are common in my area the North East U.S.A. Did I mention they share my daughter's name??

If you are in the area, I will be debuting my mini hummingbird paintings at my solo exhibition, "Impressions of the Garden" at the Reeves Reed Arboretum, Summit, NJ. The exhibition will run March 7th- May 8th. I will be giving a presentation, "Women Impressionists" on Thursday, March 10th at 7pm. For more information, click on Reeves Reed Arboretum.

“Georgia O’Keeffe once said, ‘the way to get New Yorkers to stop and take notice was to paint large floral paintings’,” said Palombo. “I wanted the works in this collection to capture the magical moments in nature that are often overlooked in today’s fast-paced, smart-phone world.”
