The next two months will be intense. I have a lot on my plate… but I am working hard and hopefully smart to accomplish my artistic goals. I have been painting in the front portion of the studio because the back (where the metal/wood shop is located) is without heat. It is good anyway to take a break from sculpture and enjoy painting without restraint. What’s coming up?

It was nice to take a break from sculpture this summer to create some commission paintings for a home in Oak Tree. I customized these works to compliment the home by using subtle color and peaceful imagery. Here are 3 of the works completed. The clients have ordered a 4th piece that I will start in August.
My next show with FRINGE. I designed the postcards and decided to use absinthe inspired art. I will also be showing 6 new 6″ x 6″ wall sculptures and some pieces from my Nodo series.

I designed these show graphics for Locus using the 3 rings to represent all geographic locations and cultures. In an effort create a simplified icon of unity I chose neon variations of the 3 primary colors. The primary colors relevance is attributed to the principle that all colors can be created from red, blue and yellow. Just as all cultures in society evolve from the same human roots and blend together to create more diverse civilizations. I am showing an installation from the Nodo series at this show.
