Mitchelle Rosenzweig
"golden maples" pastel 11x14

This is one of the breathtaking small works of Mitchell Rosenzweig which we have on exhibit right now at artstream. Mitch is an accomplished artist who is a master with color. His work is complex with color and simple with line. It informs the viewer the atmospheric conditions of the location which Mitchell has chosen to represent. Mitchell lives part time in three places and his paintngs express this - New Hampshire, New Jersey, and New Mexico. Below is "Rolling Cloud" in oil. This work is 38"x48" and fills the room with a sense of calm. It picks you up and takes you to a hillside and lets you savor the sky. Mitchell also makes films and sculpture. He had a beautiful exhibit in 2002 at the Ogunquit Museum of American Art with Wolf Kahn. He won an award at last year's filmstream for audience pick for best film. His work has been shown nationwide and currently you can stop by artstream and view some of his best work to date ... through the end of April.

The word for the day is ... drizzle ... as in a thin icing, a layer of paint, or a soft spring rain.

oh hello susan... was absolutely captivated by the richness of the colour, the moment i just opened your blog.

and before i even read the title of the piece, i had an urge of trees, big lush maple trees. and there was a brief moment, i felt my heart tugging me home.

i'm sure these pieces are absolutely beautiful in the gallery.
