I’m happy to say that another one of my paintings is heading out into the world. This one will reside near Washington DC.
A video tour thru the West Wyandotte Library Gallery. Especially for those who live out of town. For those in Kansas City, I hope that you will drop in and see this exhibit in person. There will be a reception at the library this Saturday from 2-4pm.
Got several good pix at Greaserama 2012. I love taking pix of cool hot rods!!!
Will be posting several of these on my Flickr site.
I get a lot of questions about my influences. My earliest influence was MN painter, Shawn McNulty. Shawn’s work is very unique. I don’t know that I’ve ever seen a painter that can bring out the under layers in his work quite like Shawn can. His work was certainly an inspiration in this piece I painted in 2010. Getting the colors from beneath to come thru just right was a serious challenge in
this piece. The middle stripe is a layer of pumice, which separates the top and bottom sections of this piece with a hard line and adds another element of texture completely. This piece really needs to be seen in person to be most appreciated. Your next chance to see this work and several others in my collection will be at the Wy West Library gallery in KCK. This is a favorite gallery of mine to show in and took over one year in waiting to show here. I hope that you will come by and see my work in person in Sept. 2012. Thank you.
Here is my exhibit from the Solstice show put on by RAW Artists, Kansas City.

This is the one of the latest paintings in the Vandenberg Series.

I have been given a special invitation to the Olathe Arts Festival which is being held this year on June 9th and 10th. I will be joining over 80 artists from across the county in this event! Very excited to be asked to be a part of this event! Admission is FREE. Hope to see you there!
I just added a new piece to my small collection of Abstract Art. My new piece is a 24×24″ piece by Sante Fe artist, Cody Hooper. This piece is titled, Natural Melody. Natural Melody is acrylic & paper on wood panel with an oil varnish. It’s amazing in person and stops people in their tracks when they see it!
Two years ago I shot this farm out by Eudora, KS. I texturized the photo and printed only one 15×10″ print. Somehow, I’ve lost the file for this image, with no back up. Sunday I went back to the scene and re-shot this fantastic Midwestern landscape. The new textured photo is below. I like them both but they have different qualities. At least I can make some prints of the new landscape shot!

This is just a bit of the paintings on display currently at The Bulldog in the Crossroads district in Kansas City. There are 20 works on display in all.
Congrats to Trista Kolle, from Saint Cloud, MN. She won my Facebook drawing for a FREE painting!
20×16″ Acrylic & Pumice on Canvas
Stockholm is all ready to hang right on the wall as soon as you get it Trista!!
Thanks to everyone who entered the drawing. It was a fun experience!
Catalina is making her way out into the world. I’m very happy to have this one go out to the first person that bought my abstract art! Thanks again Tina!
This piece will show in my next exhibit at Jones Gallery on July 1st. Forbes is different than all my other abstract works. Instead of using a gel medium or pumice for the texture in the red stripe area, I tore magazine pages into small pieces and collaged them on the canvas to create texture. I’m very happy with how this piece came out but it needs to be seen in person to be most appreciated.
Low Tide is one of my most recently completed works. Very happy with how this came out despite the fact that it is quite different from much of my other work. This one will show at the Glaspur Gallery First Friday in the Crossroads on July 1st.
This is the latest completed painting.

Everest is the latest large abstract I’ve completed. It measures 40×40″ on canvas. Please see my Abstract Paintings section for all available pieces and prices. Thanks!
Visit the En Vogue salon in Overland Park, KS to view nine of my abstract pieces. The lobby displays two of my 30×30″ pieces, Mariposa and Burning Sea. The back wall features the new Atlantic series paintings. Please drop in and check things out!
I still have two digital abstract images available for sale. Two framed prints of another digital abstract have already sold and both clients were very happy with the look and framing on these.
The framed prints have been professionally dry mounted with a semi gloss black mat that just makes them look great! The prints are 20×20″ and the completed art with mat is 24×24″. Both prints are mounted in a great looking black, wooden gallery frame – wired and ready to hang. Each print is available for $200. Paypal accepted.

This photo is approaching 1,000 views over at Flickr. I guess people seek out Prison photos? I just thought it had SUCH a presence that I had to take a pic of it when driving out to get some photos in a small town near Leavenworth. I added a slight texture to this photo. I wanted it to appear like a film shot taken in the 40′s or so. I think it passes!
