Just completed this fun painting. I love the feeling of it. The model exudes confidence and has the aura of a risk taker who can be relied upon without fail. Part of my new Arctic series, this artwork captures the dichotomy between isolation and camaraderie, which is also the essence of adventure in the North, and of being at ease in one’s surroundings.
I’ve been working on a new series of paintings about the Arctic and Norway since a recent trip there. These canvases try to convey the feel and emotion of the landscape, including its visual, auditory, olfactory and tactile qualities. Unforgiving, yet magnificent, the area represents a uniquely challenging environment for people. Beautiful and powerful.
Proud to display Sylvie, above, in the studio after this summer’s exhibition at CATO Institute’s “Freedom: Art as the Messenger” in Washington, DC. Bold, stark, and arresting, Sylvie commands attention in a thoughtful way, open to many and varied interpretation. While minimal in execution, it’s packed with potential in terms of content. It looks great on any wall. Contact me for purchase. Cheers
Just completed and available in the studio. Sized 36×36 inches, Raul appears enigmatic with eyes that have much to say if only we could interpret them. This kind of painting thrills me with its ambiguity and arresting quality. It makes one think. It’s not just pretty wallpaper.
Newly completed and available in my Virginia studio. Contact me directly – firstname.lastname@example.org
This enigmatic piece has been accepted into the national juried exhibition of the Marin Museum of Contemporary Art in California. The exhibition, “Content Matters,” features “consequential work that tells stories and captures the attention of visitors.”
My painting is the first in my “Corrected Vision” series which addresses feeling and seeing and the moment when one’s ideas have finally clarified. Sometimes we are blinded by misperception, wishful thinking and faulty logic. This series of paintings reflects the moment of clarity when truth is revealed. We have all experienced periods of being mislead or of assuming the best, and I think everyone can empathize with the emotion of finally recognizing the stark truth.
The exhibition’s curator and judge is well-known San Francisco gallerist Jack Fischer. Thanks to Marin MOCA for the opportunity! If you’re in the area, stop by and check out the show. This artwork is for sale.

Very honored to have two of my paintings selected for the prestigious City of Overland Park, KS, National Juried Exhibition. Rafe, above, one of the selected works, is a wonderfully expressive painting that defines the fast pace of contemporary life and would look terrific either in the office or at home. It makes me think! And, it seems to emanate both energy and wit, in addition to sporting a color palette that works with any wall.
Many thanks to the talented artist Johne Richardson who served as guest juror for the exhibition.
These are two paintings from my new series of figures showing women striking the same pose. It proved to be a fun and challenging project. Completely out of my imagination, the figures more than fill the space of the canvas. They’re pink, purple, white, and black with bright-colored backgrounds. By adopting a confident, casual pose each figure exudes energy, independence and freedom. I like the feel of these paintings. They’re diverse, yet similar. They’re bold, yet not in your face. They seem to be celebrating both uniqueness and commonality — appealing concepts for all people.
Corrected Vision 7, 24×24 inches acrylic on canvas, above, has been selected for the collection of Washington, DC via a grant from the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities. I’m honored for this delightful piece to have been chosen from among the many applicants.
A big “Thank you” to Zoma Wallace, DC Art Bank Coordinator, and Lauren Dugas Glover, Public Art Manager, both with the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities.
Nigel made its way to SCOPE Miami Beach 2018 with me and caused quite a stir at the JanKossen Projects booth. Filled with emotion, the painting features rich, thick, and creamy paint in large gestural sweeps. Drips, drops and smudges all add to a chaotic mix, much like life itself. Thanks to Jasmin Kossenjans and her terrific staff for taking good care of me and mine.
My paintings are also available at Susan Calloway Fine Arts, Washington, DC — http://www.callowayart.com.
