News for Jan - Feb:  
I can't believe it is well into February...the year has gone by so very fast. It has been a lovely whirlwind.

I have been involved in new commissions, and works have been installed and purchased for new public spaces including the prestigious Ritz Carlton in Bachelor Gulch, Colorado.

People are already signing up for the three Fine Art Workshops this year and more being planned. Once announced, these workshop spaces fill quickly. The first Denver workshop has already sold out. Don't miss out on the opportunity to take your art and art appreciation to the next level. We'll have our fun too.

My blog (noted at the bottom of this page) has posts about my new works as well as the the discovery this week of Picasso using common house paint, rare videos of Renoir and Degas, and as a change of pace, Jerry Seinfeld filmed taking his comedian friends (they are artists) out for coffee, laughs and surprisingly poignant moments.

New Works: 
Variations on a theme. I couldn't resist the high contrast possibilities of the dark trees against the bright ribbons of light.
