Married by art

May 16, 2009

Well, technically we were married by the wonderful Pastor John Jenks, but we did it at Roq La Rue Gallery surrounded by the wonderful "Lush Life" show. The ceremony was simple as it was beautiful and my lovely wife Heather was radiant. Surrounded by friends and family we couldn't have asked for a better day and a better place to have it. Here's to all the people that made our wedding come together and to many years of happiness and painting with my new bride.

Big-ish update

January 25, 2009

Well Hell finally froze over because I've updated my site. Most of the paintings I did in 2008 and a couple from earlier years have been added to their respective galleries.

So get onto the galleries and hunt down those new pictures. I'll post up those missives I know you all love just as soon as Hell thaws back out and then freezes over a second time.

Big Group Show

January 07, 2009

I'll be showing a new piece in the upcoming "Movers and Shakers" show at the POVevolving gallery in lovely Chinatown, Los Angeles. The show, curated by Gino Joukar, will run from February 14th through March 8th, 2009 with an opening reception on the 14th from 7 -11 pm. The line up for this show is quite impressive and if you're in the area I would highly recommend getting down to see it in person.

Also, I'm honored to be part of a limited edition print box set from POVelvolving. The set also has some impressive showers and the run is limited so start saving your nickles now!
