Crush of Life (Momentum)

Crush of Life – 30”x24”

My solo show at Momentum Gallery in Asheville, North Carolina has just concluded. This piece is still available for purchase through the gallery for a limited time.

I will not be having another show until June of 2022. All the cliches of time are true as I get older… there is a lot of work to be done between now and then! My next exhibit will be at RiverSea Gallery in Astoria, Oregon. I will post the dates when the time is near.

I am nearly finished with my latest commission. It was a very specific size and dimension so I custom built a cradled board to the exact measurement that the client requested. I use to outsource the woodworking aspect but people have become both unreliable and horribly expensive (winning combination). So now I do everything in-house right down to the framing.

After the board was finished I sanded it down as smooth as possible. I put four or five layers of gesso onto the wood. Finally it is time to do the painting!

It is always satisfying when the buyer is excited by the finished work. The final steps will be signing, edge detail and varnish… then packing and shipping!
