One Color

"Between Seasons"
Acrylic on Canvas
12" x 48"

This is the first monochromatic painting I have done in a while. I am really happy with the horizontal looks like moonlight on water....sometimes it is all about the removal of paint that does the trick!

Up and Hanging

I have new work hanging at the Gallery at DuPRE ...the gallery in the alley at 807 Gervais Street in the Vista. You will be learning more about the gallery and the historic building in the near future. I am very fortunate to have this opportunity...stop by during normal weekday business hours to look will most likely NOT find a gallery sales person so there is no pressure to make a purchase. And, if you find something you want to purchase, take a business card and call the gallery director to set up a time to meet back at the space! I will be starting a blog for the gallery soon, so I hope you will be faithful in checking it out as you have been with checking out my 323 art blog. Thanks for the continued interest and comments!

Updated Painting

"Unresolved/Topographic Instructions"
Mixed Media on Canvas
18" x 24"
I completed this painting over a year ago and titled it "Unresolved" because that is how I felt about it. It has been pushed aside in the studio ever since. I have added some pages from a scientific journal from 1926 titled "Topographic Instructions". I thought the pages worked well with the rest of the painting, so I collaged them to the canvas. I took it to work and it generated a lot of positive comments. Plus, it links my geology to my artwork. So, something a little different than usual.

Show Photo

I received this photo today that was taken at the Gallery at DuPre during Vista Lights. It was a fun night, and I got a lot of great feedback on my paintings. Thanks to everyone who attended. And, I especially want to thank the Gallery at DuPre for including me in the show.

Notice Something New?

I have added a facebook badge on the right column of the blog. I have been on facebook for several months now, and it has been a great tool for promoting my art. If you haven't joined facebook, think about doing so! I think you would enjoy it!
