The northward slope and the sunset light, 39" x 63". 

My first major exhibit of 2015 opens Friday at William Havu Gallery! It'll be the biggest exhibition of my work to-date in Denver. I'll be exhibiting in the main gallery beside renowned painter and fellow paint-lover, James Pringle Cook. Upstairs in the mezzanine area will be David Warner.

I shipped off the exhibition's works a couple days ago and I'm very excited about the group. The pieces seem to be an elaboration of some aesthetic threads I've been exploring – especially the notion of abstraction infused into recognizable landscape – and also represent an integration of a few things with which I've been experimenting. Veils of juniper and snow, 20" x 30" (below), for example, unites ideas from some of my flatter horizon experiments with some of my moody atmosphere studies. And The northward slope and the sunset light.......

New representation in Denver at William Havu Gallery

I'm very excited to announce my newest representation – William Havu Gallery in Denver, CO. It's one of my favorite galleries anywhere and I'm honored to be showing along some some great artists. The gallery was established in 1973 and is located in an AIA award winning, post-modern building a few blocks from the Denver Art Musuem. Seven exhibitions a year engage an ongoing dialogue on regionalism as it affects and is affected by national and international trends in realism and abstraction. In addition to my paintings you'll find an array of mid-career, established artists, including Mary Mito, James P. Cook, Jeff Aeling, Stephen Dinsmore, and others. Call (303) 893-2360 for information on my work or visit the Gallery Website.

New representation at Meyer East Gallery in Santa Fe, NM

I'm happy to announce that Meyer East Gallery in Santa Fe is now representing a diverse range of my work. They have on hand landscapes, still lives, and more – including some of my more abstract pieces. Meyer East is a great contemporary gallery near the entrance of Santa Fe's famous Canyon Road. The gallery's more traditional sibling, Meyer Gallery, is just across the way – making the two a great combination to visit. I'm honored they've decided to take me on. A few sample pieces are below, and you can find all the work of mine that they have on hand here.

New representation! Heinley Fine Arts in Taos, NM

I'm very excited to announce new representation - Heinley Fine Arts in Taos, NM. Heinley Fine Arts is owned and curated by Donna Heinley, an art historian and dealer originally from the East Coast - Boston and New York - where she became a noted expert on 19th Century French paintings. Heinley Fine Arts is the only place to purchase my originals in the Taos area, and I'm very excited to have my work represented in by Donna. I've found her to be an insightful and tasteful curator who has developed a gallery filled with great artwork that is given room to breathe. Other artists exhibiting at Heinley Fine Arts include Alyce Frank, Evelyne Boren, Nicholas Herrera, and David Michael Kennedy. Works by Beatrice Mandelman also hang at the gallery in addition to the 19th Century French paintings that rotate into the gallery throughout the year.
