This Columbus Day Weekend, October 10th - 13th, Hudson NY celebrates its 14th Annual ArtsWalk. The galleries will be open from 11am - 6pm, Friday through Monday, with additional festivities in the evenings.

My show, "SEDUCED BY COLOR", opens Friday at Deborah Davis Fine Art, 510 Warren Street. We hung ten oil landscape paintings, large and small, all with color as their main focus. The exhibit runs until November 3rd, 2008.

In addition, you can view nine of my oil paintings in the lobby of Hudson City Square at 541 Warren Street. The lobby is diagonally across Warren Street from the gallery.

For the month of October, I will be the featured artist at Deborah Davis Fine Art, 510 Warren Street in Hudson, NY. The exhibit, "Seduced by Color" opens October 9th, and will be on view until November 3rd.

Color is my passion. I love exploring different combinations of colors, finding just the right accent to make the piece sing. I am seduced by color, luscious orange and pink cosmos and their lacy green foliage against the deep blue of a cobalt vase; small clear yellow butterflies alighting on deep purple asters; the yellows and pinks of a sunset when the sky is infused with intense color. When I am painting, I am most consumed by the color interactions.
