without comments

 

I am very grateful to the Portland Art Museum, Bonnie Laing-Malcomson, Curator, the Northwest Arts Council and the Arlene and Harold Schnitzer Endowments for supporting a Center for Northwest Art in Oregon.  It is truly an honor to have a solo exhibition in the APEX Gallery up now until March 13, 2016.  This is the greatest achievement of my artistic career so far, and I cannot emphasize my thanks enough for this opportunity.  Please check out the show if you are in the area and let me know what you think.  Photo Credits: Dan Kvitka.

Time Lapse Video in Collaboration with Brian Guice Media

This will be the first in what I hope is a flurry of posts recapping a very productive start to 2014 for my work.  I had been interested in doing some kind of promotional video to give viewers an idea of how my drawings come together from start to finish.  I was lucky enough to find Brian Guice Media here in Laramie, Wyoming who had done some phenomenal time lapse videos of some of the artists doing mural work downtown.  Brian was outstanding to work with throughout the process, and I am very pleased with the results of our work together.  I also want to acknowledge Wesley Berg, who was a visiting artist I invited to UW in early 2014 and who I met a few years ago from a drawing show we did in Santa Fe.  Wesley provided the song for the video from his musical project, Glacier Face, and it’s pretty great.

AUNIVERSAL PICTURE 8

I just completed my second observational drawing of the diaper still lifes, and my third drawing with charcoal and conte on prepared linen.  In one of the images, one might note that I will be using simple steel bars affixed to the wall as a framing device for these pieces.
