I was excited to hear that this painting sold through Horizon Fine Art Gallery as soon as it was unpacked!
I have decided to take next year off from the solo show grind. I am going to send work as it is made to a handful of galleries I enjoy working with. Holding onto work for a show is exciting, to see a large collection hanging together. Shows are also stressful and an all your eggs in one basket proposition. My new plan affords me the freedom to make small collections with no specific goal or destination.
This painting was sold through the Grand Bohemian Gallery in St. Augustine, Florida. I recently signed a contract with their sister gallery in North Carolina. I am excited and super grateful for these opportunities.
This new painting is varnished framed and now packed in a giant box. It is accompanying two much larger paintings shipping to Florida. They are going to a gallery I work with called “The Grand Bohemian Gallery” in St. Augustine, Florida.
This intense painting is framed and available at RiverSea Gallery in Astoria, Oregon!
Labor Day weekend is upon us. I have some paintings to varnish and some others to frame. These days all of my work seems to go to various art galleries around the country. I am happy to have the options, very grateful to do what I love.
An older piece from a few years back. This one has that elusive magic that drives me forward. Making a living as an artist is a difficult task. More than simply earning enough to pay the bills. For me it is a calling and the core of this one and only life. I know most people don’t really understand that, even close friends.
I have been growing hops for over 5 years now. These are Cascade Hops. I like the hoppy fragrance and enjoy the way they mark the seasons. It is spring when the vines finally start to bust out of the ground. Sadly the conclusion to summer when the hops are ripe.
I have not grown them for any practical reason just a decoration. This year a brewery in town, MickDuff’s Brewery, is collecting hops from private growers for a special brew. So I harvested 4 lbs of hops and delivered them to the brewery. I now have a $20 gift card for MickDuff’s… so professional farmer?
