Bethville I – A little Peek of the Painting

“Women are having to do way too much. They are multi-tasking, working long hours, and they are still responsible for most of what happens with the family; they are caregivers, best friends, listeners; they are amazing, amazing people.”
–Dawn Tarnofsky

Dedicated to my amazing mother-in-law, Ruby Parker, who quietly passed away on Monday, November 28th, at the age of 86.  Rest in peace, Miss Ruby.

Bethville I – A little Peek of the Painting

I am working on a new series of large paintings.  I am calling them the Bethville series.  Many friends often referred to my painting style as “Bethville”, and comment that it would be a fun place to live.  This is a little peek into one of the watercolors I did as proofs for the larger acrylic paintings.    I am going to really enjoy doing these.

Dawn Tarnofsky-Ostroff was the former President of Entertainment of The CW Television Network. She was in charge of all creative efforts of the network and oversees such areas as current programming, series development, scheduling, research, marketing and publicity.

Ostroff began her career in news as a reporter for WINZ, a CBS affiliate in Miami. She also worked in local news at WPLG and WTVJ in Miami.

Ostroff joined Lifetime Television in October 1996 as Senior Vice President, Programming and Production. She was Executive Vice President of Lifetime starting in 1999.

Ostroff served as President of UPN Entertainment from February 11, 2002 until 2006, when she joined The CW.

Now in its 5th season, The CW is America’s youngest skewing broadcast network,[2] and Dawn Ostroff was in charge of the network’s primetime slate,[3] which during the 2010-2011 season featured series including The Vampire Diaries, Gossip Girl, Life Unexpected, One Tree Hill, America’s Next Top Model, 90210, Supernatural and Smallville, as well as new series Nikita, starring Maggie Q, and Hellcats, starring Aly Michalka and Ashley Tisdale.

She recently announced that she would be leaving the network in 2011.

    I am sad to hear of your mother-in-law’s death – she sounds amazing and though she was – as they say here – a great age – it is always sad to lose someone you love. Condolences to you and all her family.
