January Squall

( January Squall – 6x6 – Acrylic on panel – Click HERE to Bid – Starting at $100 )

Even though it has been a relatively mild new year here in Denver, as of late, the higher elevations to the west are getting plenty of precipitation. The snow pack throughout the state is above average, which is making the drought predictors, skiers, boarders and visual artists very happy! Looking at this piece, I guess you could call me a Colorado colorist with tonalist tendencies...

Crayons 7.2 in JCMH 2020 Calendar

I am grateful to be included in 'The Art of Hope', Jefferson Center for Mental Health's 2020 calendar. They chose Crayons because it fit well with Back to School month. It will also be used for client contact cards for kids and their families. Along with maintaining a healthy body, good mental health and a balanced emotional life are so important in today's chaotic, hyper stressed world. They are good folks doing good work, and I'm honored to be able to contribute to their mission. For more info call 303-425-0300 or click: jcmh.org.

God rest ye merry gentle-person.

This is as close to an alter as I have right now... Pictured clockwise, an evergreen bamboo plant, my 'Andy the Red Nosed Warhola' ornament, one of my favorite Windham Hill Winter's Solstice CDs from the early 90s, an improvised bookmark, a lovely candle I got last Christmas, and some pressed cottonwood leaves, all surrounding an old Buddha sculpture, with paper beads from Africa given to me by a friend who has passed, and a Knit hat made by my old girlfriend Junebug when we were twenty-one.

Red Sun

Red Sun – 18"x14" – Acrylic on canvas

I went thru many iterations on this piece, most of which are still present in the finished piece. Venturing into new teritories with this work. It is a veil of swirling sub atomic particles, above and merging with a landscape reduced to is most elemental forms. All you need is... a horizontal line and a circle (and ...love).

Thirty years ago today

It doesn't seem like that long ago that the wall came down. Everyone was excited. A blow for freedom. Heady days. Some enterprising souls were selling pieces and I just had to have one! 

Fifty years ago

...BTW from an event that happened 20 years before that, you can now buy pieces of the stage from Woodstock! Click: https://www.peaceofstage.com/

Winter Sunset on the Highline


( Winter Sunset on the Highline – 7x5 – Acrylic on canvas board )

 Snow underfoot,
near the end of the day,
the shadows lengthened,
and I turned my face
toward home.
