If I've failed to mention it, previously, I've recently taken on coordinating the art hangings at Brick Oven restaurant on 35th Street (16o8 West 35th, between Kerbey and Jefferson).  Through the end of October, the works of Soña Holman and  David Lamplugh will be on view.  Stop by to check it out and be sure to visit their websites (linked from their names above).

Also, be sure to check out previously shown artists sites: Gabel Karsten, Laura Jennings, Kristen Fox, and Karen Maness.

West Austin Studio Tour 2015

I'm showing as a guest at this year's West Austin Studio Tour at 2606 Wilson #502, Austin zip 78704.  Stop by and see my art (and me) and everyone else's too.  If I remember how to work bloodspot, the image up top will link to the Facebook page for the location-event, but if not, click here.

I'll have a few new and recent paintings including:

Like I Care What Polly Wants, 11x14 inches, Acrylic on Panel

How does it work?

Studio Visits Magazine, vol. 22

I appear... well, no, a couple of my paintings appear in the current issue of the juried publication, Studio Visits Magazine... no picture of me in the magazine, but here is on that my friend, Stephen, took the other whenever it was now.

I think that's one of my trademark, odd, facial expressions - I'll have to check with legal.  Cool shot, though.

Otherwise, been busy with house-selling-moving-preparations-getting-slammed-at-work-trying-to-figure-out-where-my-stuff-is-so-I-can-work-on-new-paintings-drawings-etc.

Most recently completed ("recently"):

Commissioned by Stu Baker for the Baker Family.

Quick entry: haste la trade.

Recent Work

Here are some new paintings.  On my official website I'm calling them Drawings-Paintings since they're more spare and sketchy.  A couple or so will appear in or as more developed paintings...

 Sneaky Pigeons - acrylic on canvas board - 11 x 14 inches - 2013

 Like I Care What Polly Wants - acrylic on board - 11 x 14 inches - 2013

 Rather Rotund - acrylic on board - 12 x 12 inches - 2013

This fellow, above, appeared previously in my painting, "Ooo...  Goodies?"  Below is a painting that started out (never got past underdrawing) as one of a series of nudes I did some years ago that I was commissioned to do for sale on consignment.  Until recently, I'd folded the paper in half, using it as a folder, but I cut it at the fold and added the cat (you may also recognize from a previous painting) as well as a background from a recent issue of Elle Decor magazine.

 Cat, Guy, and Interior from Elle Decor - acrylic on paper - 11 x 17 inches

These two (the birds below, not the guy and cat...) will appear again in another painting that will include a landscape in the background.

Gray and White - acrylic on board - 18 x 24 inches - 2013

Also, once I have the files formatted and all that, I'm thinking these will be appearing over at Society 6 where you will be able to purchase print, i-whatnot, and maybe even throw pillow versions.

Ooo...  Goodies?

En route and new work

Doing a little open window action on a lovely winter day in the car on the way to Driftwood Vineyard for Tessa's (Tessa Bennetch, of Bells and Parks - she also took the picture) birthday.  I'm seen here with Liz Baker of The Baker Family.  Incidentally, I'm working on a painting for the Bakers for posters, I think.  Sorry, no work in progress photo just now.

Some recent paintings:

 Why don't you just shut up? - 16 x 18 inches - acrylic on canvas - 2012

A little more pared down than the usual, that one.  A little more usually pared, though... well less pared more usually... is this one.

Garden Walk - 18 x 24 inches - acrylic on canvas - 2012

Should have another post of work in progress soon.  Don't forget to check out Society 6 and musics: Mario Castelnuovo-Tadesco from Nancy Green and Frederick Moyer.

Any more space for colons and ellipses?
