Sunken Treasures and a cover

My painting, Tahoe Gold, is still up for the duration of the wonderful Sunken Treasures and Ghost Ships exhibits at the Tahoe Maritime Museum near Homewood. The exhibit is a combination of history and art with all kinds of really cool artifacts related to Lake Tahoe maritime history. Because of this exhibit, my painting was also chosen to grace the cover of Perspectives on Arts summer 2014 issue which was such a nice surprise. They even did a little write up about the painting and me on the inside cover. If you’re in the Tahoe/Northern Nevada area- check them out!

The River Washes Away All My Sins Group Show

Things have been mega busy this summer- I’ll catch everyone up soon with some of my activities and work I’ve been doing. For now- I wanted to share that there is a really nice group show up at the Neapolitan Gallery in the Ampersand Bar called The River Washes Away All My Sins but it’s coming down soon (July 31st is the last day). I have a painting in this show as well which you can see below (though it’s always better to see paintings in person!)

Universe: the Art of Existence at Modern Eden Gallery

UNIVERSE-The-Art-of-Existence

I am so pleased to share that this month one of my paintings is hanging in the group show, Universe: the Art of Existence, curated by Michael Cuffe of Warholian.

My painting, “We shall need each other” is 12″x12″ acrylic and mixed media on a wood panel.

I’m excited and honored to have my work up at such a lovely gallery as Modern Eden, alongside so many amazing artists as this show provides. Michael’s vision was to give all 60+ artists the theme of the cosmos and quickly turnaround a new piece for the show which has been a great success.

The opening for the show was in April and it was amazing! Seeing the work up close and in person is well worth the visit as was meeting so many great people. There is a great write up with lots of terrific photos all by Michael Cuffe of the opening on the Warholian site.

There are still a few days left to view the show, it is up until this weekend, May 3rd with a closing reception this Friday May 2, 2014 6-9 pm. If you’re in the Bay area please get out there and see some awesome artwork!

If you’re not in the bay area but are interested in viewing the show or possibly purchasing a piece, take a look at Modern Eden’s online collection of the Universe show. (All available works are available for online purchase)

Hello 2014!

do the work

Happy New Year everyone! I’m motivated for this year to be BIG…bigger than 2013 with a huge focus on making a lot of new art and as you can see above I have wasted no time in getting started on my latest painting. With that, there will be some changes for sure and I’m still working out what that means in terms of priorities. I’m still planning on writing regularly here and sharing on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. So follow along with me in those places if you don’t already.

One thing I’m changing here is the weekly sketches. I’ll still be sketching pretty often and making art every day and every week but scanning, editing, and posting the sketch weekly disrupted me a couple times from concentrating on the art I was working on and that is what I love best. For me, art needs concentration, diligence, and momentum. My favorite thing is to let go and lose myself in the work. So- you’ll definitely see a lot more art here but the hope is it’ll be a little more organic and closer to what I really do when I make art. I have several projects in the works that I’ll be sharing including a glimpse into my art process- I’m very excited to share that. I also have a number of events and news to share coming up. So stay tuned and welcome new year- I am so excited for all the possibilities!
