Some Favorite Painters

While perusing painter Mary Klein’s blog, I was reminded of two other painters whose work I admire — Morris Graves and Mary Newcomb. I marvel at Graves’ evocative paintings of birds by Morris Graves and flowers, and Mary Newcomb’s unique interpretation of the world around her. There is a fabulous book on Newcomb’s work by Christopher Andreae which is available from time to time. While looking for images of Newcomb’s work I stumbled upon this tribute/obituary. She died this past March at the age of 86.

I use the materials and techniques of the Japanese art of katazome (paste resist stencil dyeing) to capture my experience of nature. My work celebrates daily meetings with the wild birds, plants, and lake breezes of my local urban surroundings.
