Just finished this fun guy and am loving his bold take on life. At 68×66 inches, he makes a real pop of color and contemporary impact in any space.
68″x64″ mixed media on canvas, titled Jenna, in the studio. Bigger is definitely better and more fun. This charming, clever gal makes a terrific addition to any space, forming a witty backdrop to conversation and creativity. Contact the artist for purchase.
Just shipped this handsome guy to George Billis Gallery in the Culver City art district of Los Angeles for the LA Invitational. I’m honored to be in this exhibit, curated by Tressa Wiliams, Gallery Director. If you’re in the area, stop by and see the show.
By the way, George Billis Gallery is also in New York City, located in the heart of the Chelsea art district.

Many, many thanks to juror Annette Polan for selecting this cute painting for the highly competitive regional exhibition on Capitol Hill and conferring it Third Place. A renowned nationally-feted portrait artist, Annette knows her figures. She painted the official portrait of Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor. Thanks also to Exhibitions Director Nicky Cymrot and her staff for making this possible.
The exhibit closes September 23, so there’s plenty of time to drop by and catch the show:

Gallery Talk Sunday, Sept 10, 2 pm
The gallery talk will feature both me and Dr. L. Erich Keel. Dr. Keel served as Head of Education for the Kreeger Museum until his retirement in 2013. Currently he lectures on twentieth-century German art, leads art-themed study tours to Europe, and serves as a volunteer curator for the Arts Club of Washington exhibition program. Keel earned a Ph.D. in Critical Theory from Emory University.
Gallery hours are Thursday Friday and Sunday from 12-4 pm; Saturday from 1-4 pm.
These two new paintings will be featured in my upcoming August 2017 solo exhibition – Seduction – at the Old Town Alexandria, Virginia Athenaeum Gallery.
Both pieces, 36″x60″ acrylic on canvas, feature a man with great dignity and power, yet the images are infused with color and an other-worldly feeling. Ambiguity, uncertainty, perhaps fleeting glimpses of reality infuse these abstracted visuals of modern life.
In anticipation of the upcoming solo exhibit August 10 through September 17 at the Athenaeum in Old Town Alexandria,VA, working on some new paintings. So far, they’re all about the drip. Is there such a thing as too much? Perhaps, in fact, probably. But, my plan is to push the limits. Many thanks to Gallery Director/curator Twig Murray and the Northern Virginia Fine Arts Association for the sponsorship.
