I'm participating in Sac Open Studios on Sept. 16-17th. Come by if you're in the area!
You can see the guide here.
Just finished and sent off my artwork for Imagery Wine in Healdsburg. They've been putting artists work on labels for some time now, like Sol LeWitt, Terry Winters, William Wiley, Judy Pfaff and Pat Steir to name a few.
My paintings are all installed for a two person exhibit with Julia Couzens. The reception will be held on Sept. 14th from 5-7PM. If you're in the area please stop by to see the work and say hi!
This is a short video I did to document the process of a piece of art I did for Kent Humphrey at Eric Kent Wine Cellars in Santa Rosa. The original art was adhered to a bottle and will be shopped to the collector in Florida.
Friend and photographer, Kurt Fishback came to the studio to take some photos, but I got these of him while he was here. Kurt has a great collection of photographs he's taken of well know artists, gallerists and people in the arts, the likes of Wayne Thiebaud, Judy Chicago, Joan Brown, Chuck Close and others. We had a great time hanging out.
I have a show at Jay Jay's in Sacramento with artist Julia Couzens in September. These are a couple that I need to complete.
My wife Heather has been on my ass to apply for artist residencies since October 2016, so I did, with no anticipation other than it would be a great opportunity to self explore, be immersive in new work and ideas and connect with other artists.
As a parent, spouse and a full time artist, life can be a difficult juggle not only in the real world, but also mentally. I am so blessed to have a supportive wife who believes in my work and fosters what fuels me. Today I received a call that reinforces what Heather has said many times to my shrugs, ha!. "Cast a net wide and see what you catch!"
In January 2018 I'll be heading to Omaha, Nebraska to participate in the Bemis Artist Residency Program. I am honored to be in the company of some amazing artists.
Through Jay Jay I got a commission to create art for three utility boxes on the Tower Theater property in Sacramento. I did the artwork in Adobe Illustrator and the files were printed on vinyl. Printers and installers did a great job!
A couple 11" X 9" paintings. I've been thinking about the indigenous people in the mountains of Northern Luzon in the Philippines. I'm sure these guys will morf into other forms.
