kris loya art love


Above is a photo I took recently of a detail of one of my wife Kris' many gorgeous watercolor paintings. Her work never ceases to amaze me, both literal and abstract at the same time, drawn from reality and pure imagination - it makes me happy beyond words. You can view more of her work at her new blog as well. So go on and check it out!

delaware beach scene


















Kris and I hit up a couple of beaches in Delaware for our sixth wedding anniversary, over the weekend, including Rehoboth and Bethany Beach. Without much explanation, I chose a handful of photos I took while there, originally uploaded via Instagram, to post here. We love this little part of the world, and it makes us happy to know it's only a short, three-hour drive away from our home in VA. Enjoy.

two for june!


 June will be a jam-packed month for Splotch Monster Island. First off, at Art Enables, in Washington, DC, I'll be selling Splotch Monster art prints, books and more at the first annual Another Damn Craft Show event. It will take place on Saturday, June 13, from 11am to 4pm. Art Enables is a wonderful space in the DC region, and I've exhibited in a handful of shows at their Off-Rhode Studio in recent years, so this will be a lot of fun, and the vendor line up looks pretty awesome.


The following weekend, on Saturday, June 20, and Sunday June 21, from 10am until 5pm (both days) I'll have original Splotch Monster art and more available for sale at The Round Hill Arts Center, in Round Hill, Virginia. This will be part of the tenth annual Western Loudoun Artists Studio Tour, which is an incredible showcase of local talent throughout the LOCO, VA region. 

Both events were juried and I'm beyond delighted to be a part of them. Please mark your calendars and hopefully I'll see you in June!
