To the left here, you see my painting "Clear Night on North Lombard". It has been submitted and will show this February at the "Love of Portland Show" in the People's Art Gallery. (See poster above for deets) Yeay! Shows in this gallery are always awesome and fun so I'm glad to be participating. Hope you can save the date and make in on down to the opening.
To the right here, is my newest painting and will be showing at Lane Gallery this March in the show called "The Farm". There will be a nice opening on Friday, March 1st, so I hope you can try to attend that one as well. (Lane Gallery 2627 SE Clinton) This painting is called "Nell's Farm".
One more quick thing worth a mention, Cafe Nirvana, where 8 of my paintings are currently hanging, will be having an artist's reception with cheeses and chocolate in honor of the Winter Show. This is tentatively scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 16, noon-2pm. If that changes I will update the info. Would be nice to see your face there! (510 SE Morrison)
Greetings! Happy New Year to you! Just gonna take a few moments to catch you up on some exciting things that have been happening for me in my art world. Currently, I have 8 of my paintings hanging at Nirvana Cafe. They are in very good company as they have been sharing the space with fabulous works by Julie Irmer and Kali Hoesch for the Cafe's Winter Show. As you may imagine, it is a Show full of color and texture and a sure way to brighten up even the gloomiest Portland winter day. Nirvana is at 510 SE Morrison, so stop in if you are in the area, grab one of their delicious menu items, relax and enjoy the sights. The show will hang until the end of February.
Well the big 300 is still hanging and fabulous art is still available until January 13. I am super happy to announce that I sold five of my ten boards so far! The opening was a smashing good time and art was flying off the walls as people were there to BUY ART and support the Oregon Food Bank! So much art has sold, in fact, that the remaining pieces have all been condensed into one large space, the Peoples Art Gallery. It is still a sight to behold and I encourage you to get down there and check it out before the show ends. Peoples Art is on the third floor of the Pioneer Mall, downtown Portland. (700 SW 5th Ave)
Now that the Holidays are behind me and I have finished and shipped all my custom gift orders, I have been getting back into the swing of things, painting wise. I was recently invited to do a painting for an upcoming show at Lane Gallery. The Show is called "The Farm" and will open in March. I have really been enjoying working on this one and I hope that you will come out to the opening for this show. I will post more info on that as the Show grows closer.
Above you will see just a few of the custom orders for dragons I had this past season. This is a custom family surrounded by their creative muses, and it was a very fun project for me. Many thanks to all who ordered a dragon (or twelve!) from me this Holiday season. I appreciate your business!
