SOPA Studios Collective Show

Last weekend I exhibited my paintings with SOPA Studios which was held in conjunction with the South Pasadena Art Walk. I had 9 paintings in the show including 3 new streetscapes of South Pasadena.  I sold my painting called Young Agave to a collector who’s wife just had to have the painting.

It was a busy night with a steady flow of people coming from the art walk.  Thanks to all my friends who came out to support me and a special thanks to Lisa Marsh for putting together such a great group at SOPA Studios.

Coming Through

In my latest painting titled “Coming Through” I was challenged by the subtlety of the tonal changes.  I have enjoyed doing this series as it allowed me to play with the extreme slightness of tonal change and color. I’ve found that using dry brush techniques has achieved interesting effects in my agave series.

Oh Sweet Agave

As I obsess over agave plants, I take a turn in a new direction playing with more vibrant colors and details.  See my newest finished piece…

Becoming a Painter

On the advice of my good friend and painter Kelly Reemtsen, I have been painting like crazy!  I just completed 7 paintings of my new series of desert plants.  Here is a look at what I’ve got in the works… much more to come.
