This is the largest “kinetic” still life I’ve painted yet. It’s the first go at painting splashing liquid. More to come on this idea.

Have you seen this painting? It was taken sometime in the last several months.

Small Gems Show

15 Artist Invitational, Small Gems Show at McBride Gallery, Annapolis. For the month of December, Cynthia will be highlighting small pieces eminently suited for holiday gift giving. I have been asked to contribute 6 pieces; here's a sampling.

Art Walk Annapolis 2015

To be featured artist at McBride Gallery was a real honor. Thank you, Cynthia. It was interesting and fun to meet people, and folks who come out to events like this are interested in art work. They ask excellent questions! It makes me think!

Nine pieces were sold and Cynthia kept 15 more. She returned only 9 pieces; she really has no storage space. 

I am honored and I feel validation as well as humility. What a blessing!

Below is one of my favorites "War and Peace". It was one of the first pieces out the door! It's a pleasure to make such a connection.

Above the fold!

Here's a picture of the August 16, 2015 issue of the Capital Gazette, Annapolis, Maryland's newspaper.

Art Walk Annapolis is this Thursday evening from 5  9 pm. I'll be there to meet and greet old friends and new. I'll meet art lovers and collectors. Cynthia is delightful to work with and I look forward to a long association with her gallery.
