Sacramento

My solo show is ongoing at Elliott Fouts Gallery in Sacramento, CA. It will run the month of February.

I went down for the second Saturday art opening! It was fun to talk to art enthusiasts and buyers. It was a very successful show for the gallery and myself. So much work goes into such an event, you never know what will happen. I keep my mind focused on the art… it’s all there is to do.

As a painter I tend to be very solitary, in my own head. Funny how much I find myself talking at these shows…

Art for Elliott

Emerging 20”x16” paint on wood panel

This painting will soon be headed to the Elliott Fouts Gallery in Sacramento, California. I have a solo show there the month of February and I am super excited about it!

I painted this one three or four weeks ago. Just got around to taking a high resolution photograph this morning. I still have so much varnishing, framing and photography I have to do before the show. So many details go into the preparation of an exhibit. I just want to paint but it’s all part of the gig… I can’t really complain.

I am prepping a collection of paintings to send to Horizon Fine Art Gallery in Jackson, Wyoming. I am thrilled to have gallery representation in Jackson Hole! A town I have always loved visiting.

Lately I have been spread thin sending out so much work and prepping for my solo show this February at Elliott Fouts Gallery. I am absolutely loving it, and so thankful!

Pendleton Center for the Arts

I just had my show opening in Pendleton, Oregon. It is an honor to have my paintings displayed in such a beautiful historic building! A really great art community is flourishing here, the Pendleton Center for the Arts is at the heart.

Pendleton is famous for the big rodeo in September and of course the great Pendleton wool clothing and blankets. We took a number of tours in town and found it has some really intriguing history with an underground that is pretty fascinating. So if you you find yourself in that part of the country it is well worth a visit. Plenty of great restaurants, brewpubs and a wonderful new distillery! If you can make it before the end of August you can also see my show at the beautiful Art Center!
