Announcing.... !

After nearly 2 years of not being able to easily find me on the net I have gotten a domain name just for me. I hope it will direct more traffic to my blog and in turn direct more people who love my art and inspire me to create more. Fall is in the air here along the coast. We have had 2 wks now with mid 70's temperatures consistently keeping the summer heat at bay. A few announcements for everyone to become aware of is a new Gallery Representation coming in October to The Chapmans gallery here in Hampton at the Hampton Peninsula town center just off of Mercury Ave. Also I have put together a plein air painting workshop geared around my style. I have it set up to meet at Blue Skies Gallery in Old Town Hampton on October 8th, and October 15th. Both are Monday meetups and I will give an hour lecture about my process, then we take a very short walk to waterside pier and do a painting for the next 2 hrs. Call Leslie at Blue Skies gallery for more info....(757) 727-0028, or just shoot me an email. Here is a few paintings done over the course of the last couple of weeks. Hope you like! Take care

Bay Days

Bay Days was this past weekend. IT's where a whole bunch of people come to town to I think, drink alot of beer, and oogle over someone elses boat. How big is yours, etc... but a few artist set up right outside of Blue Skies Gallery on King St and displayed our paintings or wares. It turned out to be a huge success! Both for Blue Skies and for us artist who were looking to build their contact list and just to get together as a one unit and talk art! I have to say that Leslie, owner of Blue Skies, is one of the most incredible ladies around! Thank you Leslie for all that you did for us this past wk end. You make all the efforts of us artist look so easy! Aside from that I have been working on some studio work so here's another painting fresh off the easel...
