I've been taking a break from the studio to get my thoughts together about what I want to do next and also my process in the studio. Spring is coming so I'm thinking it'll be a great time to get back in, clean all the crap that has accumulated in the studio and start making art. For now I'm enjoying nature and the local waters looking for inspiration and getting outdoors!
My painting, "Eyeful of Nothing, Brain Full of Everything'" is currently on view in the Small Works Gallery at the Reno Museum of Art from July 5, 2020 to January 3, 2021.
Due to the Covid-19 epidemic and galleries shutting down, my show at Gallery Fritz in Santa Fe will take place on their website. I hope that the work can eventually be shown at the gallery so people can see the paintings in person. You can see all the work I created for the show on May 29th. I also created six short videos explaining the title of the show, What Tribe You From, and talking about some of the work. I'll post those here as well.

As my online show with Gallery Fritz in Santa Fe gets closer, I'm trying to tie up loose ends and unfinished work. This is a diptych 72" X 109".
These dog images started from a beware of dog sign I saw on an artists Instagram page. He gave me permission to use the image so I used it as a starting point. Having fun with these.
I hope you're doing well during these crazy times. So far we're in our 25th day of staying in, but I'm still making work for Gallery Fritz in Santa Fe. The gallery is temporarily closed so there will be a virtual show in June and possibly a Zoom studio visit. I post more frequently on Instagram (jy4tes) so follow me there to get more up to date info on. Stay safe and well!
Short video of work in progress for my show What Tribe You From? at Gallery Fritz in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Hard to say what will happen by May with the Corona Virus pandemic and if closures will still be in place. Still moving forward.
