Spent the weekend in San Francisco, where we attended the impressionism exhibit on display at the De Young. Highlights for me included an excellent Bonnard and two intense Rousseau pieces in the above mentioned show, finally seeing El Anatsui's work in person, and gazing at an ancient peruvian coat made out of feathers. Lisa enjoyed the Degas dancers and the Van Gogh flowers! We both loved the Monets and the Pisarros!!

It was good to see the sights and sounds of the city, catch up with old friends, and see some truly amazing art... i've come back home inspired and ready to paint.

Every month I open my studio/workspace in the Buhne building for arts alive. This week, I will be busy preparing for December arts alive. It's usually well attended and full of holiday festivities, so if you're around please stop by. Look for my sign on the sidewalk!

New Work

My latest showing! On nov 6th I opened my studio and displayed this portrait of Haile Sellassie I. I expected a little controversy as I am not a rastafarian, and my expectations were met when a man challenged me to please relate who the current Negus of the Tafari was and so on... he chose not to discourse and instead left! On the right is a portrait of Buju Banton.

One Peace and Love till we Understand!!

A Combination of Forms

So this was shown in september 2010 and its kind of the culmination of my "mixed media" style of work. I hope to show this at a venue with large enough wall space...~15x18ft. let me know if you know of any!!


Welcome to my blog...This is set up as a temporary webspace to display work. Please feel free to offer advice, critique, direction, and general commentary. I hope to move to a more customized site in the future until then... enjoy the art...
