These paintings and drawings delight in conversations and celebrations. The cakes are inspired by vintage images from Betty Crocker’s New Picture Cookbook from the 60’s given to my mother when she was married. . . . The smaller pastels are about conversations where the objects take the place of people. Larger pieces are a closed circuit of communication, dialogues or soliloquies or larger conversations about more formal elements of a painting.
Some of the images are done in the day light, some worked out under electric light during the nights. My seven month old daughter Maria gives me such charmed smiles that I can ignore them only when she sleeps. Thus, I often work at night.
