I am happy to have finished the largest painting I’ve attempted thus far and grateful for the advice of my trusted friend Dave Wyzenbeek that helped me see this to completion.”Majnun” will be debuting at Core New Art Space  on October 1, in a show titled “Ghosts” that I am sharing with the accomplished and gifted altered book artist Valerie Savarie.

I will be present all three Friday evenings of this three-week exhibit, on the 2nd, the 9th, and the 16th, from 6 to 9 PM. I hope you can come by, share a glass of wine, and let me know what you think of the new work.

If you’re interested in knowing more about the ancient story of the star-crossed lovers that inspired this painting, you can learn about Layla and Majnun here. And Eric Clapton once wrote some songs about them, too.
