getting ready for holidays

The holidays are starting! Here are two reindeer families I just completed. I want us to enjoy them this year – but they will be available for purchase in 2015. Let me know if you’re interested.




keeping up with my sculpture

 

I’m not teaching ceramics right now, so I have to do what I can to keep up with my spirits. This one is about 20″ tall.

I made several of these a few weeks back. Want one? This one is about 12″ h and 10″w. $90




Masks coming along

I decided to paint the masks. Here’s the beginning on one.

I just finished making 5 new masks – here are two of them.  

They have to dry for several days before I can put them in the kiln for their first firing. What do you think?

After they come out of the bisque firing, I will glaze them.  Sometimes I leave them pretty raw, with just highlights.

Hello and Welcome!

lil cub

Welcome to my art world on this newly redesigned site!  

My old site had just about everything I’ve ever created – including many things that have long since been sold.  You can still see some of the things people have collected – click here or on the ‘in collections’ tab.

But because I range so widely, people were getting lost in the old site.  And it was hard to update. I hope this is better and I invite your comments – positive and negative.

For those of you who are new to my work – I operate principally in two media – acrylics/multimedia on canvas and handbuilt clay sculpture. I teach clay sculpture for a living.

At the core of my soul, I’m a dancer – I’m a former professional ballet dancer and I have an intense love and knowledge of ballet and modern dance. You’ll see movement expressed in many of my works, especially the paintings. To see what I mean, click here or on the ‘movement’ tab under paintings.

My sculpture is also fluid, but it’s tends more toward the figurative and literal than the abstract, though I make plenty of abstract clay pieces.

Right now I’ve put up on the site some 3-pointed idols I made from my memory of Taino archeological finds near my childhood home in the Dominican Republic.  Click on  the ‘idols’ tab above.  My tropical upbringing will also explain to you my vivid painting palette!

And before I get back to work – just a word of thanks to my husband, Joe Neel, who helps me out by photographing my work and putting this website together. We frequently open my home studios in Washington, DC to visitors, just email Peter +at= RomeroArt =dot+ com for an appointment.

Please let us know what you think!
