Auction Alert: Going Home
“It evokes that Friday-feeling of relief—of finishing work and looking forward to putting your feet up.” It’s hard to believe Easter and Passover are upon us already. It seems as if moments ago we were getting ready for the winter holidays, and everything has been non-stop since then. Especially when things are busy, spring holidays […]
Same Sky, Different Laundry
“I decided to treat my painting as an abstraction which would stand by itself as a good design whether held upside down or sideways. Realism wasn’t important.” Here is a long, tall beauty from 1968. At a mere 8″ across, Street in Naples is a narrow, upward looking, sky scraper-shaped work, and a great example […]
SOLD: Jewish Ghetto Courtyard
Update: This painting had a great sale at the Scottsdale Art Auction! Congratulations to the new owners. “I marvel at the resilience of the Jewish people. Their best characteristic is their desire to remember.” —Elie Wiesel This is a quiet, mid-afternoon Spanish scene. The sun falls across the courtyard with a strong line of shadow […]
Auction Alert: Ringing Bell (Nuestra Señora de la Salud)
“The men strolling by and seated in front of the cathedral show the spectacular architecture as a host to life unfolding as usual.” Clark Hulings loved Mexico, and he painted there throughout his long career.

The Ides of March
“Morely Callaghan’s main character in this book is a failed painter who falls in love with a failed American singer—who is pretending to be Italian.” The Ides of March marked a lunar cycle in the Roman calendar that was equivalent to our March 15th; it was a day dedicated to Jupiter and settling debts. It […]
“What spirit is so empty and blind, that it cannot recognize the fact that the foot is more noble than the shoe, and skin more beautiful than the garment with which it is clothed?”— Michelangelo Picture it: 1949. The Art Student’s League. Clark Hulings was 27 years old and pursuing the dream, studying with the […]
Ebbs and Flows
“A strong tree trunk softened by Spanish Moss frames the fisherwoman—almost as if the environment itself ‘has her back.’ “ Clark Hulings had many ties to Louisiana: his parents moved there during WWII, when his father headed up the effort to create synthetic rubber to replace the rubber tree supply that had fallen under Japanese […]
Please Stand By
“They do not agree, they did not expect it, and they have something to say about it…” When he drew this in 1999, Clark Hulings was certainly already a master painter. It was the year of his one-man show at the Nedra Matteucci Galleries in Santa Fe—with its beautiful accompanying catalogue and an introductory essay […]
Working Like a Donkey
“The burro is standing patiently, dead still, in the hot bright sunlight with only his nose tucked into the shadow.” There’s something about this time of year: the holidays are behind us, the spring seems miles ahead, and work is in high gear. Many of us juggle a long to-do list and wake in the night, […]
Year of the Pig
“This mother pig might be catching up on rest; we can’t see her face, but we imagine she must be exhausted with her six hungry piglets having lunch…again.” Chinese New Year gives us a chance to put the spotlight on an animal theme. Last year was a little more cuddly with Year of the Dog, […]
Call the Cavalry
“An ill-advised assault, it resulted in the cavalry’s defeat, and Reynolds being court-martialed and suspended from the military.” Henry Winston Allen was a writer of many names. As the author of more than fifty books about the American West, he used the pseudonyms Will Henry and Clay Fisher, and was a five-time winner of The […]
