New Stuff in the Works

Did a quick blues painting. Named it after a Skip James song. Check out this YouTube video of him doing Devil Got My Woman.

Here are some other pieces in progress.

Fresno! Corridor Reception

Went to my reception at Corridor 2122 in Fresno on Saturday. Met a lot of old (we are getting older after all) friends. Had a great dinner with friends after the reception and am glad to have reconnected. The show looked great and there was a little write up in the Fresno Bee on Sunday. Time to get busy for the next show in Healdsberg.

Good friend Erik Davison (left).

This is a photo of Richard Silva, a Fresno painter that has a studio next door to the gallery. I didn't have alot of time to check out his studio, but I definitely will spend more time next visit.

Works on Paper - In Progress

Went and saw the Squeak Carnwath show at the Oakland Museum. It is definitely worth checking out. There are small works as well as many larger works that I've never seen before. There's even a short video with Squeak explaining her work. I want to go back if we can find a baby sitter!

Here are some pieces that I've been working at off and on for a while.

Erik Kent Wine Tasting

Kent Humphrey of Eric Kent Wine Cellars invited us for a wine tasting which included the 2007 Stiling Vineyard Pinot Noir with my artwork on it. Kent's wife Colleen is an artist and she selects the artists that go on their wine bottles. All of us had a great time and I highly recommend giving their wine a try.

Works on Paper and Paint Caps

A few pieces that I'll working on. Pretty brain dead at the moment. Paint caps anyone!

2 New Paintings on Paper

Did these on Saturday. Trust in this case is suspect. The asp comes out from a hole in his teeth. The asphole, ha! Igerotica is a play on the word Igorot, which refers to indigenous Filipinos in the Northern mountains of the Philippines who were once headhunters.
