Dream, Recanati in the Marche, oil on canvas 60inX32in
Bluebirds, oil on canvas 48inX48in For my 50th birthday, my friend and mentor, artist Daniel Maffia, gave me a small watercolor of a bluebird: a symbol of hope, love, and renewal. His token inspired my latest series of paintings, which incorporate rosa rugosa and the ocean–images that both Daniel and I have come to love from living on Cape Cod–and serve as an homage to a 40-year friendship that we have shared.
