works on canvas, paper & fabric
Acrylic on canvas 36" x 36" Collection the artist. Incredibly complicated, the bonds of sisterhood run so deep and sometimes, out of nowhere, they blow...
No Way Out But Through
Acrylic media on canvas 24" x 24" SOLD No way out but through. Of course, there are other options. But who's going to have the better stories at a party - the person who watched a program about whales on PBS or the person who left the boat drenched in whale spit?
Acrylic on canvas Framed - gold frame 32" x 26" SOLD Colors may vary with monitors and devices. When a person is sad they are said to be "singing the blues". But sorrow is different - it's hotter than sadness. There's nothing like being all alone and singing the reds.
Acrylic on raw linen 38" x 26" Framed - Gold Frame SOLD When you feel like you might be losing it, there's no therapy like dancing. Put on some groovy tunes, turn it up LOUD, and do a really silly dance in front of a mirror. If you think to yourself, "I look like a crazy person!", most likely you aren't. If you think, "Damn! I've still got it!" then you're going to be okay because you probably are a little crazy.
Acrylic on canvas 48" x 36" SOLD The Native Americans have done rain dances for hundreds of years. Wearing their turquoise jewelry and feather headdresses, they dance to ask the spirits to send rain to fall on the dry and dusty land. How the spirits must weep to see how we've burned and scraped and drilled our sacred planet. Have the rains dried up, or have the spirits run out of tears?
Acrylic on raw linen 16" x 16" each (set of 4) SOLD Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall - a diptych representing the four seasons, which inspire band names and music and seem to change more quickly with each passing year. Four paintings heavily layered on raw linen and folded at the corners.
Acrylic on canvas 16" x16" Gallery wrap & molded corners $950.00 + shipping Colors may vary with monitors and devices. Stirred, not shaken...that's how I prefer my emotions. A small piece, painted on raw linen canvas. The initial layers of paint are absorbed into the fabric, so additional layers are added, then layers of copper and gold paint.
Allegories And Allegations
Acrylic on canvas 36" x 36" SOLD I closed up the house one night without realizing a squirrel had wandered in. The next morning I found a number of screens had been shredded as he desperately tried to escape through the windows. He did such a beautiful job, I added one of the screens to this piece, painted during a period of intense sorrow and stress, when I desperately wanted to escape. I've been unable to replicate those finely shredded edges.
Rebuilding From The Ashes
Acrylic on raw linen 53" x 100" SOLD In memory of my Aunt Joan, who lost her youngest son, Gary, in the twin towers on September 11, 2001. He had flown from his home in Arizona to New York for a one hour meeting. Just one of the many twist-of-fate stories; the many hearts left broken in the ashes.
Wet City 1
Acrylic on canvas 48" x 36" SOLD
Acrylic on canvas 16" x 16" $750 + shipping "Thelonious Sphere Monk" - I love his name. I love that he would suddenly stand up in the middle of a song, dance around a bit, then sit back down at the piano and continue playing.
Wet City 2
Acrylic on canvas 48" x 36" $4,000 + shipping
Acrylic on canvas SOLD Radio waves send sounds of many colors vibrating through the air. Can't you just hear the Tannerin wavering on the intro to the Beach Boys song? "I'm picking up good vibrations, she's giving me excite-rations."
Acrylic on canvas 24" x 20" SOLD We didn't really "get it" until one night, listening by chance to Charlie Parker, blowing, seemingly with wild abandon, and yet each note could not have been more perfectly or intentionally placed. We sat still and held our breath, as if any movement would disrupt the radio waves. When the song was over we exhaled and turned to each other, smiling like two explorers who have finally found the fabled lost city.
Acrylic on canvas 36" x 24" SOLD Life goes along, and if we're lucky, most days are vanilla; sweet and smooth. Now and then, though, something happens and a symphony of flavors bursts through. Just when you think you've seen it all, someone comes along with a banana and some chocolate syrup and rocks your world.
A Brand New Year
Acrylic on canvas 36" x 48" SOLD Started on New Year's Day, when it felt like the long, dark winter was finally behind me and the new year loomed ahead, full of promises.
Acrylic on canvas 36" x 48" Collection the artist.
The Colors Of Faith
Acrylic on canvas 22" x 20" / Gallery wrap & molded corners. SOLD If you say, "You should like these colors instead, these are better colors", I'll squint, and turn my head, and I'll try to see what you're seeing, but all the words in the world won't make me like your colors if they don't work for me. So how about you bring your colors, and I'll bring my colors, and together we'll create a world of rainbows and mud?
