Sneak Peek

Here's a peek at my studio space.  You can catch a glimpse of some of the work for my upcoming show at the Pump House.  This was taken a little while ago, so it's a bit different now.  A bit messier, more paintings, and the burn pile got bigger.

I Heart NY!

I just found out I was accepted into the Salmagundi Club's 34th Annual Non-Member Juried Exhibition in New York City!  I can't believe it.  My art will be hanging in the halls that have hosted some of my biggest art heroes, and the Salmagundi Club has had as members some of the greatest American painters who ever lived.  Blakelock, William Merritt Chase, Frederick Stuart Chase, Inness, Howard Pyle, N. C. Wyeth, so many others.

My painting, "The Turn," of musician, sage, friend, and overall happy place Tim Jenkins will be exhibited in August.  Tim taught me everything I know that's worth knowing about music.  I am honored that Tim let me paint him, and happy that the painting conveys even a fraction of the respect I have for him.

I am extremely honored to be a part of this exhibition.  The Salmagundi Club has a rich and prestigious history woven with the best artists of the past and present.  I can hardly believe I'm going to have a painting hanging on Fifth Ave.

Now, I just have to figure out a way to get to NYC.
