Jay Rolfe: Multiple projects ... my journey From Starving Artist To 21st Century Picasso

Don't you just love the future Jay Rolfe's projecting for himself? I do!

In my earlier post today, I mentioned my "drying rack" which allows me to move work in progress aside so I can work on other things while the work in progress dries enough for the next step. This is a partial and temporary solution to my limited work space. Well, I bought another shelf today. Here's a photo of parts of four projects on the drying rack.

I got word today that the article I was interviewed for may appear tomorrow in the Philadelphia Inquirer. I'm excited.

This is the next step on the journey of Jay Rolfe From Starving Artist To 21st Century Picasso. You can see some expressions of my unique artistic idea on my website at

I visited Jay Rolfe's studio for the first time today to see his paintings after viewing his abstract canvases online. Having met Jay and his wife several months ago, and being an art historian at West Chester University (PhD from UC Santa Barbara 1997) I was intrigued. Friday, March 23rd I went to NY to see the contemporary works of art at MOMA loving my favorite artists and unimpressed with the conceptual pieces and uber-minimalists. Jay's paintings surprised me in a good way and I told the reporter from the Inquirer what I thought. I enjoy the way that Jay incorporates art history and social commentary into his art sometimes subliminally, sometimes more blatantly. His monumental canvases carry messages of love, peace, whimsy, and hope. I applaud his efforts and look forward to Jay's maturation as an emerging artist.
