alchemical vessel 2017, work in progress


For the time being, the Endangered Kingdom series has been on a brief hiatus as I focus on working on and completing a piece for the upcoming Alchemical Vessel exhibit and benefit at the Joan Hisaoka Healing Arts Gallery, this March. This is the third year in a row that I was invited to participate in this wonderful event, and it's always and honor and a pleasure. Here's a sneak peek at my work in progress, and I think I'm a little over half of the way there. More to come soon!

'the winter's tale" art exhibit at tryst gallery, leesburg, virginia


hank you to Jim Sisley and Lisa Stout of Tryst Gallery in Leesburg, VA for setting up an excellent show for tonight's opening of The Winter's Tale. It was good seeing such a variety of works on display, and talking to folks this evening. The show will be up for a couple of months, and the new Loudoun Brewing Co is a stone's throw across the parking lot (bonus!), so make sure to check it out everyone! #art #winter #artexhibit #trystgallery #loudouncountyva #artwork

"the winter's tale" art exhibit opening at tryst gallery, leesburg, virginia, 2/3/2017


Tomorrow evening (Friday, February 3rd, 2017), from 6 - 9pm the Tryst Gallery in Leesburg, Virginia will host the opening reception for its latest art exhibit called "The Winter's Tale".  I'll be showing my 36" x 36" acrylic painting, "The Watcher at Brandon Park" in this juried, winter-themed show, along with many other local and regional artists. Since the exhibit coincides with the Leesburg First Friday festivities, there will be lots to see and do, so I hope to see folks there!

january, 2017 abstract surfaces

Sometimes I remember to scan the abstract watercolor surfaces I make on wc paper, before drawing on them. I also like to share some of them for free, to the public. Feel free to download and work on or with them as well, as long as it's not for commercial purposes. If you do decide to use them, a small shout out is always nice as well!

splotch monsters invade the facebook, and contest!


For a little while I've only posted some of my Splotch Monster art on my personal Facebook page, but It's due time these lil' beasties found a home of their own on FB. So at the urging of some friends and my wife, the Splotch Monsters finally have their own island in Facebook-land. Please make sure to "like and follow" the Splotch Monster Island page on Facebook HERE, and I'll be selecting two winners from all the names of folks who liked and followed by 12:00 noon, Saturday, February 4. Winning names will be randomly pulled out of a box on Sunday, February 5, and announced at 8pm that evening. Both winners will receive a customized Splotch Monster-meets-animal piece (valued at $150 a piece), featuring the animal of their choice (can send photographs of a personal pet as well!).
