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!
