Mineral Roses/for Lena, 41 x 44″

It’s time for another beautiful group show at Gebert Contemporary in Santa Fe. I’ll have a few new paintings up, including this one, Mineral Roses/for Lena. Lena was my paternal grandmother, who was ill and dying by the time I was old enough to remember her. She had immigrated from Sweden and married a cousin, Marcus Sorgman, my grandfather. From what I know of her life, it was marked with illness and poverty, although she did have three children and many cousins living nearby. I painted some (abstract) gardens to honor her memory and retroactively gift her with roses.

The reception for the Gebert show will be on Friday evening, July 5, from 5 to 7:00. I’ll be there, and if you are in Santa Fe, please come by!
