In Progress

A few photos of my current painting in progress.  I had started this painting just a few days before Grizzly bears were removed from Endangered Species status.  Sad, but fitting.  700 bears in the wild is not a high number, especially if there is a major disaster, and  to ensure no genetic mutations occur due to inbreeding.  Our priorities need to change.  So it’s fitting that I happened to choose a Grizzly as my subject for this piece.  We are steadily creating desert landscapes full of our garbage- in this case, a junkyard of cars- as we clear out the natural habitat of so many species, many endangered.  I used flowers growing out of the bear’s back as a reference to our connection to nature; this lone patch of flowers mirroring the small, shrinking natural landscape.

Art at Home

Sometimes I receive installation images from people after they’ve hung my work in their home.  It’s always nice to see my work again and how it looks in its new space, plus if it’s been included in groupings of work by other artists, that’s always nice to see.  So these are a few shots featuring paintings from my In Our Veins series and Beneath the Surface series.

Face to Face

These are a few photos from opening night for the “Face to Face” exhibition at LeMieux Galleries in New Orleans.  Artists represented by the gallery as well as a few new artists have created their own interpretation of portraiture, ranging from the traditional to the abstract.  The show is up now through July 29th, so there’s still time to see the exhibit.

I’ve made some more progress on my latest painting.  I’m in the home stretch on this one.  At 10″ wide by 20″ high, this is a large size given all the detail work (and that yet to be done!).  It’s coming along slowly but surely.  This is a close-up of one of the pelicans I recently finished.  I’ll be revealing the entire finished piece soon.
