New Site and Facebook Page

After more than 10 years, I finally got around to updating my website. It was officially updated at 2 AM along with a letter explaining the update. I also tried to create this blog about what I’ve been up to. I should have stopped there, but also tried, after a ton of pressure from friends, family and collectors, to create a Facebook page. Well, this morning I have received a lot of great comments about the site, the blog and the Facebook page. For this, I am extremely grateful. Unfortunately, I am so so sorry that I have no idea how to respond or reply to the many nice comments I’ve received. After looking at online tutorials, chatting with friends, and ripping my hair out, I gave up and went to do what I actually know how to do and truly enjoy . . . PAINT!  I did this little study to clear my mind, and all was good again. Funny thing was, at the end of the painting a little bug flew onto the painting. The nice part about this is that it was really easy to fix this bug. I don’t know how long it will take me to fix the bugs on my Facebook page. Once again, I am sorry if I haven’t gotten back to you in regards to the comments (and can’t actually even bring them back up to the page), but I do appreciate all the kind words of encouragement.

Before the Show

We snuck away to Disneyland one more time before the summer crowds would overtake it. It was great in the early morning, but by 3pm, the crowds had come. This was a nice escape though, since I had been working hard on delivering several new paintings for my show at Trowbridge Gallery in Ojai. Here are just a few of the paintings that I have been working on. You can see more at the show on May 26th. Thanks to Outdoor Painter, the home of Plein Air Magazine for doing such a nice write-up about my artwork and the show.

Tonight is the “Supermoon”, where the moon is supposed to be 14 percent bigger than normal viewing. I will be going on a 16 mile midnight hike near the hills of Malibu. I sure hope it isn’t cloudy, because I don’t plan on bringing a flashlight.
