The artist and Alicia Fox with Whoopi Goldberg and her new painting. Thank you Arcadia Contemporary, Whoopi, and all of the folks from The View who received us so warmly.
Two paintings ("Private Odyssey" and "Sitting In the Dark"), featured with Arcadia Contemporary at the L.A. Art Show, sold during the exhibition, one to Larry Mark (producer of films like Jerry Maguire) and the other to Bill Prady, executive producer of The Big Bang Theory. Just prior to the opening of the show, director/producer J.J. Abrams acquired "Monster In the Trees", and now has two of the drive-in paintings in his collection.
I'll have paintings in the Arcadia Contemporary booth (Booth 824/925) at The Los Angeles Art Show, January 14 - 18, 2015. Very happy to send the night westward!
Welcome to my new website! For anyone who visited the old version, you'll see that I'm able to feature many more paintings here. There is no attempt to include every artwork I've ever made, but there is a selection that includes those coming right off the easel, going all the way back to pieces completed in the early 1980's, when my oil painting life began. And rather than focus on chronological order alone, I've grouped the work into several categories, or recurring themes, that I continue to explore.
I'll use this News page to highlight recent paintings and events, and who knows what else. Starting with a painting that will be in Arcadia Contemporary's Small Works exhibition, which opens on Oct. 16th, the opening from 6 - 8 pm. The painting, pictured in its frame, is "Midnight Walk", twelve inches square, oil on linen. It features Petunia, a dear four-legged friend, who modeled for me courtesy of Amy, a dear two-legged friend. The location is right on the corner where I live, a real treat to find this sense of mystery so close to home.
