Thank you to all those who made opening weekend such a success. Paintings and drawings sold and everyone loved the Louis CK series. Of course I didn't think to take photos during the evening, but here is a photo of my latest, 'Confessions of a Mechanical Man' which references the nearly 4 years I spent wearing a scoliosis back brace during my adolescence. 



This Saturday at 4:30 pm join us at the gallery for a one hour salon discussion about the current show where I will answer questions about my work. The salon will be recorded and posted on my website in the near future.

Show at R. Pela Contemporary Gallery this month of March

20 paintings spanning the past 2 1/2 years I've been back in Arizona will be in this show, which feels a bit like opening up a closet and having all your thoughts spill out. Among the paintings will be my Louis CK series, including Louis as a bee, a deer, and a devil emerging from an egg with a pitchfork.

I was in the middle of making deviled eggs for a party that day. It's true. What can I say?! I believe him to be a smart and handsome fella.

I will be at the gallery for the entire Art Detour weekend and will be painting live in the gallery on Saturday and Sunday.

Whether you're a budding collector or have been collecting for a while, there is quite a variety of my work at the gallery priced affordably.

Join us this weekend and contact me or the gallery with any questions.

New Works on Paper

I've recently completed a group of mixed media pieces (acrylic paint, pencil, pastels, collage) on paper which is quite a departure from oils. Five of pieces are shown here, with the final one to be shown in the show at R. Pela Gallery next month. All images are 12x14" on 15x22" paper. Email to inquire about this work.

Louis Bee K.

I intended to paint a bee with a man's head and didn't expect Louis C.K. to appear. The face began to resemble him so I just went with it. Simple and subtle. No extra fluff needed. Just like Louis. 9x12 inches, oil and collage on board After some thought I've decided to expand on this peculiar theme. Look for Louis C.K. as a variety of animals in the near future.
