I have much to be grateful for, being fully engaged in the studio with a numer of commissions for three locations across the country. Thank you so much for those opportunities.
Commission, private residence, 52 x 32 inches
Sometimes the artist gets to see where their work eventually hangs as was the case this week. After finishing a commission locally, the collector and I hung it over a tall fireplace. I was happy for the sale and the help hanging it!
There are a number of new works in progress (photo below) and it is absolutely energizing to be in that space with those partially completed canvases demanding attention.

My best wishes to you and happy Thanksgiving!

Ken's work at the Denver International Airport
Should you find yourself at the Denver Airport, take the time to view my work and those of my gifted Expand artists / colleagues reproduced in the Main Terminal. You will see the images between the baggage claim areas and behind the car rental counters. This “Here to There” themed display was curated by the DIA Art and Culture Program. The airport desired more color in the main terminal spaces and happily, we were allowed to use it as our playground. Many thanks to my fellow artists and everyone that made this possible!
Our EXPAND artist group is comprised of five artists from the Denver metro area: Victoria Eubanks, Janice McDonald, Carol Ann Waugh, Mary Williams and myself.
