Off to Houston and Back to Oregon

I've finished the commissioned painting for Sacred Heart Medical Center at RiverBend. It is being shipped to Houston to American Art Resources, the consulting firm for the job. They will stretch it, frame it, and install the work in Springfield, Oregon. Seems circuitous, but those are my orders.

Here's to Emma

This week on Monday we put our sweet old girl, Emma down. She had a type of invasive cancer that progressively made it harder and harder for her to breathe. After a week of sleepless nights, we made the hard decision. She loved people and always gave a warm greeting to any visitor. One of her final acts was to hold out her paw to the stranger who helped with her death. She loved to hold hands and always extended a paw. She loved the beach and chasing balls and sticks, but most of all she loved to engage with people. She was my constant companion and I miss her terribly. So here's to you Emma, and your kind, outgoing way of greeting the world.

An Invitation

I'm posting an invitation for an open studio this weekend. I hope you'll stop by. I would enjoy meeting some new folks and sharing my art and that of my friends, Jason Greene, Stephen Leflar, and Mary Real. We will have a variety of prints, drawings, watercolors and paintings on canvas in a variety of prices. Come on by!
