June Update

Man, time flies, half of the year gone already! Quite a lot has happened over the past month, here is the latest.

I am still working towards my August show at Wells Gallery in Charleston with Philadelphia artist Evan Harrington. I have now settled on 10 pieces for the show, 8 are done, and 2 are in process. This show is meant to be work that is a bit different than what people are used to seeing from Evan and I. I will still have some of the interiors people tend to gravitate towards, but I will also have a touch of landscape work, still life, and some rather experimental stuff...but do not be afraid, it will not be TOO far removed from my previous work. I am pretty excited for this one, and the buzz is just now starting to grow as the Aug. 6th opening approaches. The painting on this post will be 1 of the 10, it has been titled "Everett" and measures 30" x 24".

In a bit of bad(?) news I have officially removed my work from the Lawrence Gallery here in Oregon. I won't go into it here, but I will say that I am sleeping just a bit better now. I am currently looking at new representation in the area, as I believe it is important to have a presence in your local art community. I will post more on that when I have figured out where to land.

Lastly, I have received word that I am one of the young artists chosen to be in the 2010 Southwest Art Magazine "21 Under 31" feature. I am not yet sure which painting will be featured, nor if I placed, but we will all know when the Sept. issue lands.
