Glamour

Glamour

Growing up in the 60's and 70's, I would see my mother sitting at the kitchen table putting these curlers in her hair. She had this beauty ritual. Dip the teasing brush in the water, tap off the extra, brush her hair from root to end, the place the curler (without pin)at the end, then tightly wind the roller to her scalp, pushing one pin in to hold it in place. She kept her curlers in an old box under the sink, with her teasing brush. I recreated the scene, with every girls go to magazine, Glamour. I read Glamour religiously as a teen. I composed this still life painting to bring your eye to the brush and corner of magazine, where reality meets fiction. A fun painting for remembering the women in our lives. Perfect girl for Mom, sister, aunt, grandmother or anyone who loves Glamour. Classic, vintage, simple- all my favorite elements of a good still life painting.

Farewell to the Hoffman's Playland roller coaster! This tribute painting was titled Last Ride because the Hoffman's Playland, in Latham, NY is closing after being open for more than 50 years. Can't you just hear the "clickety-clack" of this old, vintage roller coaster?

Saltwater Sweetness Taffy

Saltwater Sweetness Taffy

I hope they never change the way salt water taffy is packaged. The little wax paper on the ends that you simultaneously twist to unwrap. I love the colorful stripes- a playful work to paint! Candy lover Christmas gift!

Great piece of pop art for any decor, especially mid-century Modern!

Mom and Dad's Sleeping Bag

Mom and Dad's Sleeping Bag

True story: My father fished this sleeping bag out of the upper Hudson River (Newcomb) around 1957 (ish!). After a little restoration (washing!), he and my mother used as their sleeping bag when we would go camping. Now, I have the sleeping bag at my camp. I wonder who left it by the Hudson all those years ago? It is truly the most cozy red flannel sleeping bag. The book in the painting is called Camp Fire Girls- the chapter I randomly opened for this still life is called The Seashore. Enjoy! Adirondack lover Christmas GIft!

Sunday Night Disney Movie

Sunday Night Disney Movie

Sunday nights in the 1970's meant one thing: Disney Sunday Movie. You will be called to come in early from playing outside, then take a bath. Sitting in your pajamas, wet hair, with your siblings next to you, you would watch Tinkerbell wave her wand. Then the Disney magic: hear the music and watch the wonderful intro to the movie! It was priceless.

Waffles!

Waffles!

Room temperature butter and Aunt Jemima syrup are all I need. Oh and waffles. Yes, I like a little waffles with my syrup and butter. Waffles used to be square and come in small boxes, at least that’s what we always ate. Store bought, freezer burnt waffles. Nothing but the best. It didn’t matter…frozen waffles were the summer’s best weekday breakfast, along with a frozen can of Orange juice. Add 3 cans of cold water and stir. I looked all over for frozen square waffles and I don’t think they make them anymore. Eggo cornered the market on the round waffle. On a side note, no waffles were eaten during the photographing for this painting…but I have half a box left for tomorrow!

Lime in the Coconut

Lime in the Coconut

As the Harry Nilsson song goes, you put the lime IN the coconut! I loved that song as a child. It never made sense to me (still doesn't) but its a catchy tune. This lime and coconut still life was fun to set up and paint, especially cracking the coconut!
The sliver of green on the lower left slice has a luminescent quality I strived to reproduce.

This modern still life would look great hanging in a kitchen or bar area. The texture of the coconut has a nice rustic quality.

Highlighted Route

Highlighted Route

Long gone are the days of paper maps and highlighters to plan the vacation route. Back in the day (!), usually Dad (because he was the driver), would have his coffee and decide the route to the vacation destination. This still life with the glasses, citronella candle on the vintage green picnic table, has carved in it some initials. Great gift for traveler!

I enjoyed the color in this painting! Red and greens always a hit!

Summer Breeze

Summer Breeze

Long before there was central air conditioning, there was a summer breeze. If it was really hot, well, then you’d get out a fan to blow the hot air on you. Living in the northeast, we are lucky to have that perfect summer day. The day when all you need are open windows open, sheer curtains, and a chenille bedspread to take a nap on. Seals and Crofts said it best…Summer Breeze…makes you feel fine.

Sad but true, Hojo's (Howard Johnsons) are no longer dotted across the country. That bright peaked orange roof, which welcomed visitors for years, is just a memory- EXCEPT if you can make it to the last open Howard Johnson's, in Lake George, NY. Still serving cocktails and pancakes, Howard Johnson's is part of the shared American experience. Families for decades made HoJos a summer memory, a tradition filled with french fries and orange sherbet! Perfect gift for traveler! Makes a great Christmas gift!

Get In Classic Car Painting

Get In Classic Car Painting

Opening a car door seems like a ritual we don't even think about. We've opened car doors our whole lives, yet, their design is somehow unnoticed. I wanted to bring attention to the slick design of a car door- the balance and placement of the key, the door lock, the button to push...all simple elements, yet all come together to make a strong visual statement. I love the light and shadow this white car produced. The warm, creamy color of the car reminds me of buttercream frosting! This painting would enlarge very well as a print for any decor. It's bold composition and subtle use of color leaves the viewer satisfied. The vintage car was photographed in the Adirondacks. It's classic subject matter will spur many conversations!`
Get In is a metaphor for life. Where will your journey take you? Open the door, and Get In.

Four Cottages Adirondack

Four Cottages Adirondack

There is something so quaint about the cottage-style motel. So perfect, neat and tidy awaiting its guests. These are located near my camp in North Hudson, NY. Located deep in the Adirondack Park in the High Peak region, they must have provided needed rest to hundreds of visitors. A perfect little painting for any rustic, cabin, cottage or second home decor. This oil painting, while appearing simple, has subtleties of color and light. I had wanted to paint this for years and finally did it proud. The interior designer in me could find about 100 places to hang this little treasure...I hope you do, too.

Diner Coffee

Diner Coffee

Who doesn't love the shape and feel of a good diner mug? The REAL light cream, the weight of the mug, the perfect curve of the rim... it's more than a cup of coffee, it's a simple pleasure. Rather than clutter up this simple image with other items, I wanted the mug to be the center of focus. The tiny coffee bubbles and subtle cream floating atop the coffee is an familiar site begging for a sip! Sit a while with this cup of coffee- it never needs a refill! Great coffee lover gift or Christmas gift for coffee drinker!

Tub O'Soda

Tub O'Soda

It was July 16, 1971. The perfect summer day as I recall. My father was hosting the annual work picnic. I won a green raft that day for my athletic ability in the egg race! It was my biggest claim to fame as a 9 year old. I remember reaching into a tub of iced cold soda with what seemed like every variety ever invented. It was sheer heaven- all the FREE SODA I could drink! Pull the ring tab- wear it on your finger for a bit before carelessly dropping it somewhere in the grass. Take that long first sip…..ahhhhhhhhhh. Life was good.

Note: Look close! These cans are painting in the era of 1970's!

Cherry Kool-Aid with vintage aluminum ice cube maker 10" x 10" Oil on gessobord

Making Kool-Aid was hit-or-miss. First, you had to have packet. Chances are, we didn’t have enough sugar to fill the measuring cup. Next, to find the pitcher- (dump out whatever old drink was brewing in that!) After accidentally snorting the unsweetened powder when you opened it, get your spoon, add sugar, stir, then pray that you would have ice in the ice-cube maker! If all was right with the world, you would have the perfect sugary cup of cherry Kool-Aid. All in a summer’s days work!

Frozen Pink Lemonade

Frozen Pink Lemonade

10" x 10" Oil on Gessobord
After ripping the plastic strip off the can, removing the aluminum disk from the end, Iwould hold that can for a few seconds then wait for the "scccuuuupppppp" sound as the plop of pink creamy ice fell into the pitcher. I remember being in such a hurry to make it that filling 3 whole cansof water seemed like an eternity. The sticky, gooey mess would be left on the counter, along with whatever utensil could find to make it. Then, after selecting a glass as impressive as this pink drink, I would find the perfect spot to enjoy it. The ritual involved with pink lemonade hasn't changed much and while buying a carton may seem easier, there is something about the canned frozen pink lemonade that remains my prefered method of classic, summer-must enjoyment.

Grandma's Bread and Butter Pickles, 6" x 6" Oil on gessoboard
Pickles is a fun word to say. And, they are fun to eat! My grandmother used to make bread and butter pickles. She always had on an apron (which she made) that was trimmed with rick-rack. There were special pickling tools and jars…a entire days worth of a process just for some pickles! The pickles were more precious than her tomatoes. We would only get one jar, with a special label. “Grandma’s Bread & Butter” with the year. I always thought she was stingy with her pickles, until I tried making them! It was so much work for such a small little condiment. Until I discovered that Vlassic makes a pretty mean sweet and sour pickle. Now, I eat pickles all year long! I bet you have a few jars in your refrigerator???

Salty Cucumbers

Salty Cucumbers

Growing up in the 60’s and 70’s meant pouring salt on just about everything. It also meant that anything was “snackable”, even cucumbers. Political correctness for food hadn’t quite hit mainstream. There were no “low sodium” foods, or very few. Snacking in the summer required creativity. With three brothers and sisters, scavenging for snacks meant taking a trip out to the garden and picking a ripe cucumber. I would cut it into thick slices and sprinkle salt on each slice. And that’s how we ate cucumbers in summer, as it was….

Merry-Go-Round and Round

Merry-Go-Round and Round

Prior to the salad spinner, there was the neighborhood merry-go-round. Being spun at a nice speed could be a very relaxing experience. You could lay down and look at the trees and blue sky above. Unless your brother was the spinner. Or anyone else, for that matter! They would start holding the bars and running with the merry-go-round. You would just beg “stop” “slow down”! Like a tag team, they would take turns gripping on and giving it a good push. You were at their mercy. There was no stopping it. You might be left on for five or ten minutes while everyone else got on their bikes and peeled out! Eventually, you would be able to stick your feet out to drag them into the dirt to stop it-if you had sneakers on. If not, it would simply spin, slow, spin, slow and finally, you would stop and then the whole earth would start spinning!

It's a Rotary

It's a Rotary

Making phone calls as a kid required patience, and time. Dialing the phone was an art form. When a phone number had 7-8-9 or a 0 in it, you better have a strong finger! If it slipped just a bit, you risked getting a wrong number, then starting the whole process over. Then there was the clunky, heavy receiver which would bruise your ear if you spent more than ten minutes on the phone! A private call required several steps. First, a location that you could get the phone to! We would sneak the phone as far as the cord from the wall would go, then take the receiver with you and hope no one tripped on the cord (or it would pull out and you would get disconnected). Phone calls were a special event. When the phone rang, aside from it ringing, you would announce "The Phone..." in hopes that someone would answer it. There was no caller ID, no call waiting, no machines- just plenty of wrong numbers and hours of fun making crank calls!

P.S. The number on the painting was my grandparents, who lived in Albany, NY. It is the only number I remember from my childhood...probably because of the letters!

Cinnamon Toast

Cinnamon Toast on Wonder Bread, 6" x 6" Oil on gessobord

If you weren’t feeling too lazy, why not jazz up regular toast with some cinnamon sugar? A few slices of Wonder Bread, some butter if we were lucky, but it was usually margarine, cinnamon and sugar made the summer vacation a bit more exciting! This was a step above cereal as a breakfast alternative. French toast and waffles were next and pancakes- real pancakes made from the box! But cinnamon toast was great anytime. I remember experimenting at a friends with cinnamon sugar! We used confectionery sugar, butter and cinnamon and made a paste. To this day, I remember how that taste. We would eat it by the spoonful. I’ve grown up (some) but still love the taste of perfectly made cinnamon toast.

No Hands!

No Hands!

Going for a bike ride without a destination was a top ten pastime as a kid. You just jumped on your bike and started pedaling. Ride in the middle of the road, no helmet no hands- just the air through your hair! The only serious riders were the Italians (Breaking Away). I remember my yellow bike with a banana seat. My father ran over it multiple times because I left in laying in the driveway. Take the challenge: just go out and get on your bike and start pedaling!

Life Preserver

Life Preserver

There was no avoiding it. At some point during the summer, you would be tied into an orange life preserver. If you were lucky, it had dried from the previous wearing. You would put your arms out wide while your parent would strap you in and make it as tight as they could. Then, with your chin to the sky, they would tie it around your neck. It may have saved you from drowning, but I always felt suffocated! And the smell! They always had an aroma of sweat, Coppertone and mildew. But I’d give anything to smell that again!

PS. I was on a quest to find a life jacket for this painting. I did find one on eBay in it’s original wrapper, from Sunny’s Surplus from 1960 for $2.99. Hanging with honor in my camp!

The original has sold, but the prints are FABULOUS!

Adirondack Coleman

Adirondack Coleman

Leisure Time

Leisure Time

Keeping a campfire going was a requisite while camping. And on a really hot day, it just added to the sensory overload! I loved seeing the swirling of campfire smoke through the trees. After everyone piled out of the camper in the morning, there was a stillness I remember when going back inside. Everything we needed was in that camper! As a mom year later, with our pop-up camper, I loved leaving it clean and unzipping a few windows to let it air out during the day. My fondest summer memories were spent in our Leisure Time pop-up camper, and I’m sure my children would have to agree about their Coleman pop-up camping trips. There’s nothing like escaping from daily life for a few nights in the Adirondacks. It truly is priceless.
