...new paintings.

I have a pair of red-lens glasses that when worn makes the world a monochrome place. They've helped me see form without considering color for the moment. Looking at a painting in a mirror or through a reducing lens provides a fresh perspective on a developing artwork and so does the removal of color. And then I appreciate the power of color more after I've taken it away for a bit.

...power on.


Focusing on the path not the obstacle.

...power out.


California Street has hosted a string of accidents over the last two weeks. It's a bit crazy. People in a hurry? Or just not paying attention? Texting? Well this morning this van took out the power in the area along with a couple of parked cars. Two utility poles went down. He's okay fortunately.

New Gallery Representation!

I'm delighted to announce that I have entered into a committed relationship with a San Francisco gallery. Last month, the owner of CK Contemporary gave me a call after seeing my painting Lone Jimador at Copita in Sausalito. As luck would have it we found common ground. Now I'm officially among the cavalcade of talented artists they represent from all over the world. My work has been shown in different galleries over the years, but I've not been fully represented in this great town, my home town, until now.
CK Contemporary has an inviting street level store-front which is half a block from bustling Union Square. Collectors from all over the world stop in. Even though the setting at CK presents my art in the best possible way, it's the gallery director Lauren Ellis who makes all the difference. She is friendly and approachable and I am pleased to know that people looking at my fine art will feel comfortable and engaged in a bright welcoming space.
