Dear Dick
2016
gold pen on plexiglass over oil portrait
27" x 34"

On plexiglass, which I placed over this oil portrait, I rewrote an incredible letter from my father-in-law Dick's uncle to him about this portrait of the uncle's mother, Dick's grandmother. The letter on how to care for the portrait was notarized and carried strict instructions, including where to hang it and when to place flowers in front of it.

My Wonder Years

Memories of the milkman delivering milk bottles to the front steps of our house in New Jersey was triggered by the glass bottles of chocolate milk my son was consuming one summer.
So I decided to fill each empty bottle with memories from my childhood: Catholic school, bits of nature, shells from the shore, decorations from my birthday and Christmas, pieces from my grandmother's doll house that I played with for hours, sewing materials and parts from games I played with my five brothers and sisters.
