Hood River Outing

If you are in Hood River in the next few weeks, I am participating in the Kiteboarding for Cancer annual fundraiser. My work will be at Providence Hospital, Full Sail Brewing Company, and the Columbia Arts Center. There will be a big opening event July 2, from 5-8 pm, but the work is already in place. For more details, check out the KB4C.org website with a link to their blog. On the blog you will find images of the other participating artists. The works in this post will be for sale at the Hood River locations mentioned earlier.

What Would You Call It?

There is such a diversity of art movements in existence these days. Is it important to be attached to one? There was a time when there were fewer artists and many fewer movements. Impressionism, cubism, abstract expressionism. Today, there are more than I can count or probably know exist. So where do I fit and does it matter? I think I've always been somewhere between the cracks. I'll leave it to others to coin a phrase for the pictures I make.

New Paintings

Here are 2 new 9x12 inch paintings that I'm considering for inclusion in the September Fountainhead Gallery show in Seattle. The vertical painting is one of my favorite little hideaways in the village on Neskowin on the Oregon Coast. The horizontal piece is a forest scene focused on the bare branches creeping through the forest, just before spring.
