Prints! Pt. 2!

One plate can produce endless variations depending on how it is inked. This makes the process so exciting. The sofa was made from a plate produced by my studiomate and inked by me.


One of my Christmas presents this year was a small etching press. Yay! These are from the first day of printing. Unfortunately, photos cannot reproduce the beautiful colors and the wonderful way the ink sits on the paper. Now I just wish I had more hours in the day.

More new work

The crane is a study for a larger painting. The tank is an experiment I started this morning. When the tunnel is finished, it will be one in a series of four.

Small Works show

I have several pieces in the Small Works show at Artzone 461 Gallery. The show consists of work that is 20" or smaller in any dimension and should be quite fun. Concurrently, in the main gallery is a show of large oil paintings by Randy Beckelheimer. What could be better than beautifully painted giant industrial landscapes? Info below. Hope you can stop by.

New year, new work

One of the best ways to keep warm in my very cold studio is to stretch canvas. Since it's been quite wintery here lately, I have built up a large supply of new canvases. I find blank canvas irresistible, so these won't sit around very long, but it's nice to be able to start so much new work at the start of the new year.
The top three paintings are sourced from Flip videos I shot in Texas and California. The tunnel is part of a series. Bottom two are older work getting closer to completion.
