Paul Monasevitch / Marvelous New Work

Gorgeous new abstract painting by Paul Monasevitch
click on image to enlarge
So exciting to see this new work by abstract expressionist 
painter, Paul Monasevitch.
Paul Monasevitch is a fine painter and I am delighted 
to admit, my brother in law as well.

I love his paintings for their space, color, movement, 
texture and they are big, but never overwhelming.
Lively yet soothing. 

This new work is so engaging. 
The eye moves through the richly colored and decorative 
elements as they seem to float together and apart as if 
in creamy liquid.

Paul describes his painstakingly careful and time consuming
methodology on his web site

A terrific opportunity to view Paul Monasevitch's work in person
including this new gem:
"Paintings by Paul Monasevitch" at the Marlin Gallery, Camden County College. Artist's Reception: May 30, 2012, 5 - 7:00 p.m.; Gallery Talk 6 p.m.

Eating Elephants

done on my iPad / Carolyn Croll 2012

The way to eat an Elephant? 
One bite at a time.

Lately found my plate piled with 

Securing additional help for Mom
after her short hospital stay for 
cracked ribs.

Participation in condo democracy
preventing a scary proposed project
from proceeding.

And pest control. 
Having discovered my treasured 
bargain blood-red Bokara ruined by 
wool moths. Also the lovely cashmere 
throw bought in London years ago when 
the $ and the £ were tit for tat. And
Bessie Bear, made from my 
Grandmom's old fur jacket from
the 1940-50's with her monogram
BTR as the pad under the left foot.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner....
Eating Elephants.
Hope to finish and be back posting soon.
