My Nancy

Ice Cream

Catherine Redmond, Ice Cream, 2015, Oil on canvas, 14″ x 11″

My painting is in the article in today’s New York Times on the show Dogs & Cats: 21 Artists Unleashed and on the Prowl.  Opening at the Mark Miller Gallery on Orchard Street on the Lower East Side, Miller will donate a percentage of sales to the Humane Society and critters are invited to attend the opening.  Nancy, her marvelous independence and personality has been my friend throughout life though I only started to consider her as subject matter in the last few years.  In last year’s interview with Ira Goldberg in Linea we discuss its personal origin for me.  Nancy has broad shoulders and can mean many things to her fans.

The studio is a makeshift one but it is hot with activity and the fresh green of the grass streaming in on the sun. I’ve a painting, Ice Cream,  going out to a show at the Mark Miller Gallery on the Lower East Side this week. It’s nice to feel the work is connecting to new eyes.
