This is going into a group show at Applegate Gallery on Dec. 18th along with another painting. Should be fun. I'll post the info soon. I initially was going to take pics of the evolution of the painting and post them periodically but lost interest so here it is finished! - the colors look drab online...much more saturated in person~sigh.

I'm smitten by this image so I keep remaking it in different media. This is an etching and aquatint number. I only got a couple good ones because it was impossible to get good registration so the embossed edge of the plates looked rather crappy. Anyway heres a good one.
This is the painting from the show in LA last month. I had very little time so I defaulted to the ocean stuff. I grabbed an old painting, sawed a piece off the end and painted the lady holding the jellyfish over the top of it. I made a drypoint of the same image but I don't think I have a scan of it...I'll look. I'll post pics of my graduate show soon if anyone is interested.

I have a piece in this group show opening this weekend. There are some very good artists participating. In spite of my distaste for being called a "lowbrow" artist I'm looking forward to checking it out. Lowbrow! ~shudder~ why does that strike me as so lame?

New piece that I'm still looking at. I feel like its done but can't leave it alone so maybe its not...hmmmm ---->it measures 5' square. Loosely based on Marie and her being committed to certain things. Thats all you get hehehe.This is just a snaphot so the colors will be off...

I've been wanting to paint this since I saw an old clip of some guys trying to hold one of these on the ground. The ship took off into the air and the men holding on didn't let go until they were too high. They all died. Terrible thing to see but the piece is loosely based on the moment after you may have held on too long...we'll see how it turns out...I even have some dimension on this painting, I couldn't resist the temptation.

Heres another recent piece...I've got one more of these in my brain and then this little series will be done and I'm moving on to paint wooden cubes and larger scale panels that I got recently. Looking forward to wrestling those for the rest of the summer and fall...

I have one piece (a drypoint) in this group show on the opposite coast coming up shortly. The owner/curator is very nice and the space looks so great. Too bad I'm so far away! For a sneak peek at my piece and at other artists also showing, click on the link to the right!
