ART & PHOTOGRAPHY
• Art in the Time of Covid-19
to which I keep adding new pieces;
• new art here (late 2019) & here (2020);
• new photography here (late 2019) & here (2020);
• also new: a gallery of Painted Photographs.
Some thumbnail examples:
Now on the YouTube channel: a flowing video of selected art and photography created during 2019. Coming soon: a video of 2020 works.
Below are favorite images from recent
years. Many have appeared in juried
shows at New England galleries.

Have you read the Squeezeshot Saga? It is fiction that pretends to be nonfiction, set in the present day. It describes a powerful new device that may actually develop and come into everyone’s hands. (See the above image.)
If that happens, the device will bring freedoms and challenges that will transform how we live. Privacy, intimacy, secrecy, individuality, romance, friendship, family life, education, entertainment, sports, politics, government, warmaking, conflict, law enforcement, criminality, communications, the arts—all of those and more will change dramatically. How might we cope?
The 2020 Newton Open Studios weekend has been cancelled. For now, I’m sending out occasional short “Art in the Time of Covid-19” emails to subscribers, each with an image. If you’d like to receive them but aren’t a subscriber, subscribe here. And be well!
