I’m happy to report that I’m working on a series of commissioned paintings, but I always have more than one project going so the attached photo is not one of those. It is the first in a series I call Paintings of Peace. I actually may work on this first one some more before I call it finished, but thought folks might like to see it at this point. It’s larger than most that I have done recently at 48×30 inches.
This is a special announcement! Please pass it on to all your contacts. “The Art of Steve Lawrence” exhibit at the Borrelli/Space Gallery will close. Last chance to see 30 new paintings in the gallery (2nd floor) will be Sunday Nov. 8th from 10AM to 4 PM at 4411 Park Blvd. Other entrance if open is 4421 Park Blvd Artworks. You can e-mail Steve at email@example.com. The artwork will go on in my studio and anyone interested is welcomed. Please come whether you just want to browse or buy. I’m looking forward to meeting as many folks as possible. My thanks to Michael Borrelli and Robin Borrelli for their continued support. If you haven’t had a chance do stop by and see the new Borrelli Kitchen display, it’s fantastic! Thanks to everyone for their ongoing interest and support. I will continue working in my studio after the 8th. and all are welcome by appointment.

A new painting and trying a new way.
I think this painting marks a new stage for me. Hope you enjoy!
This painting is 48×30 inches. As usual for me, titles are difficult, but this fits OK.
About “Walls”, the Painting
When one runs into a wall the tendency is to turn around and go another way. But, as in the painting, the walls all come to an end and instead of going backwards one can go around the wall or even over it. It takes perseverance and courage to explore what the wall is about and how to deal with it. Walls can also provide protection and a hiding place until one is ready to move on. Walls can be seen as sign posts causing one to find a new direction. Breaking through a wall is tough. Perhaps it is wiser to take the path of least resistance like water flowing wherever it finds a path. Walls are not a “dead end” unless one gives up. May we all find a way to get beyond the walls and continue the journey.
Walls, the painting final. This is what some would call an assemblage. The photo doesn’t do the 3D
construction justice. But it actually seems to glow.
