What a fantastic time at the opening of my solo show Old Dogs & New Tricks! Thank you to everyone from the gallery who helped out! A special shout out to Kate Johnson from Boxer Rescue Angels of Florida for taking photos at the Marvelous Mystery Mutt Tour Bus, we raised $35 for the rescue! And also to my friend Jean Blackburn who manned the dessert table! 

I had a terrific time and was so surprised by the people who showed up. I saw fellow artist Michelle whom I met at last summer's Creative Capitol workshop and a old co-worker of mine and his wife from my days at Hagenbeck Wallace, the prop shop for Ringling Brother Circus.

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!
