For my solo exhibition Old Dogs & New Tricks my goal is to express joy and fun. An opportunity to escape from our  tumultuous present and live in the moment through the eyes of a wise dog, or to celebrate the joy and comfort of food, in particular dessert!

Summer Sycamore no 5 Wins Second Place!

Very proud to have one of my recent landscape paintings in the Open Juried Landscape Show at Art Uptown Gallery in Sarasota! The piece won second place and will be in the Main Street window for the next two weeks. 

The show runs April 30 through May 27th and the opening receptions is Friday May 6th from 6 - 9PM. I am heading out of town so I will not be able to attend but it's First Friday in downtown Sarasota so it is a great time to see some art!

A new round of Superhero Dogs for the Southeastern Guide Dogs new campaign were unveiled on Tuesday. And my pup was among them. It was a great time at the State of the Arts Gallery.

Here are a couple views of my pup. My dog is living at the Publix at the Broadway Promenade on Tamiami Trail, down near the Van Wezel. Beginning in May "Visions" will have his own web page where you can vote for him as a favorite!

Here are some photographs of the dogs that have been unveiled so far!

Stay tuned for the next round! When you spot a Superhero on the street post it to Instagram with hashtag #SuperheroesOnTheStreet
