I'm happy to say that this painting found a home with new collectors after being auctioned at our local school fundraising event.  I loved making this painting specifically for this particular event, which is near and dear to me.  I wanted to make a work that captured something of the essence of where we live.

Save the Date: Upcoming Exhibitions in the Bay Area

Hello friends!
My work will be featured in two upcoming shows.  Both are at Hang Art Gallery, in San Francisco.

First up is Same, Same But Different, an exhibit at Hang Art.  The exhibit will showcase the work of gallery artists.  The work is unified by scale, as all pieces in the show will measure 16x16"

Next will be my solo show at Hang Art.  I'm very busy in the studio right now finishing up this new body of work.  I'm planning on having 10-15 new paintings.... just in time for the New Year.

Openings at Hang Art are the first Thursday of each month.

Please stay tuned for upcoming details and images of the new paintings.

The Four Elements


Earth




Air




Fire




Water


This group of paintings were a commission to create my own version of the four elements: Earth, Air, Fire and Water.  Measuring 8x8", each painting is oil on birch panel.  The end result were a group of  paintings which have a distinctly West Coast influence.  I chose to relate the theme to my own personal experience and observations. 

The Earth painting was inspired by the rich agricultural land of Monterey County, specifically the vast strawberry fields in Watsonville.  

Circling honeybees were my approach for the Air painting.  I presently keep bees on my Santa Cruz Mountain property.  I think of them in correlation to our West Coast agriculture. 

California wildfires are the inspiration for Fire.  Plumes of smoke have their own particular beauty that I find fascinating.  

The Water painting was a reprise of an image that I've explored before in my work.  The clear and intense blue of Lake Tahoe's water was my inspiration and source. 


These paintings are now in a private collection in Philadelphia.  

I really enjoyed this commission.  In fact, one of these paintings has influenced a new body of work. Stay tuned for studio updates and news of upcoming exhibits.

Up Through the Vineyard



Up Through the Vineyard

Oil on canvas
36x36"
2014

My painting, Up Through the Vineyard, will be auctioned at an upcoming Gala fundraising event that benefits our local public schools.   This event is important to me, my family and our community.  This will be my 6th Gala event, and the 6th painting that I've donated.  Each year I try to come up with an image that feels connected to this place where we live. 
You can find out more about the fundraising event and auction here


About the painting:  Among the many benefits of living in the Santa Cruz Mountains of California, this area is also known for it's wonderful wineries.  I've always wanted to create a painting inspired by one of our local wineries, and the Gala was my perfect excuse.  I chose Loma Prieta Winery specifically because of their special connection to our local school and community.  It doesn't hurt that they are North America's largest producers of Pinotage ... a particularly delicious wine.

  The Gala is set for October 4th.
