Happily, my year began with my artwork being briefly displayed in the just released movie Concussion. The image above shows Alex Baldwin and Will Smith with my artwork in the background. Don't blink or you will miss it. No fifteen minutes of fame here!
I hope your new year is off to a great start!

Back in the real world, three commissions have been completed and delivered this month to public and private collections, thank you all very much! Now the studio is filling with large and smaller canvases for my one-man show in May - details will be announced soon.

The Jan and Feb classes filled before I could announce them here, but there are 4 openings for the March 19-20 date. Here's a photo from the January class just completed. $390 per person. complete info and registration
I'm looking forward to meeting you, teaching, traveling and making a lot of new friends this year. Let's make it a great 2016!

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 / collogues 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.
