Thank you all so much for the support and likes through this rough year. I am particularly thankful to the folks that purchased my work and helped me keep this ship afloat! Happy New Year!
My largest rainbow painting to date. I will be working on some even larger pieces soon.
Happy 2020, I hope it is a great year!
I have finally started a YouTube channel! Late to the party but at least I showed up. I will be adding studio footage and inspirational videos as time goes on. Currently not much there but that will be changing.
One of my top nine of 2019. This one was sold through Elliott Fouts Gallery in Sacramento. I had a solo show at the gallery last February, this painting was part of that exhibit.
Today I will be varnishing and photographing much of my work. As eager as I am to paint I have a looming deadline for my show solo show at Elliott Fouts Gallery in Sacramento, California. The show is the month of February so I need to get my work photographed, varnished, framed, packaged and shipped very soon! Deadlines keep me running!
I have never been an optimistic person. In grade school, learning vocabulary, the teacher asked us if we were optimists or pessimists. A girl I had eyes for said, “Oh, we are both optimists.” She was a bit smarter than I was, but as she explained the difference, I knew she was horribly mistaken.
For some odd reason, I am filled with an unrealistic optimism for the new year. I am making my living painting, it’s not easy. My days are only getting shorter, never mind. I have a vision for my work, mastery of my materials. For the first time in my life I know my greatest work is ahead. I am excited to make it.
I hope you all find passion and meaning in 2019.
The app said these were my top 9 of 2018, who am I to argue? Thank you all for your support and positivity in 2018, happy Holidays and here is to a great New Year!
I started this painting January 1st. It is going to be a busy year, best get started!
Here is a quick composite of work. Another year raced off.
