Short and Sweet

A very short and sweet post tonight, and for once I have some very good news.  After a year of pounding the pavement and getting my name out there, I finally have some local gallery representation. 13Forest Gallery is located right down the road in Arlington MA and is home to some of the best artists in […]

A New Shirt and a Great Market Day!

The new batch of white Tee shirts are now available!  This white shirt is the same premium quality as my previous black one.  They are butter-soft and pre-shrunk, and you can check out the sizing chart on the Anvil site.  As with the black ones, I have done a very limited run of this design, […]

The Will to Continue!

ArtBeat is this Saturday from 11 am to 6 pm, and I’ve spent the whole week painting my little fingers to the bone trying to flesh my inventory out a bit. The economy in the US right now is in the toilet, so my goal is to offer affordable, original art.  The 5″ x 5″ […]

Cape Cod / Mini Mandalas / Artbeat / Wall Spin

Miss G and I returned from a short trip to Provincetown, which is at the very end of Cape Cod yesterday.  It was my first trip to the Cape and the first time I’ve been in the ocean for a very long time.  It was nice to escape the city for a few days, but […]

Embrace the Past but Make Love to the Future

There has been a strange energy in the air lately.  Last year at this time, I was hanging out with Caio Fern, getting ready for my first solo show and trying to beat the heat. A lot has changed over the past year and a lot of progress has been made.  I wish I could […]

Stepping Away to Step Forward

Sometimes the best way to figure out what you have been missing or where you need to go is to pull yourself away from your normal setting and routine.  Gabriella and I had a great trip to Brattleboro, Vermont this past weekend, and I came back with a fresh sense of purpose.   I have […]

Towards the Dog Days of Summer

I started the week off by boxing up and shipping the Slice panel.  It’s a piece that I am very connected to, but I was happy to know that it was going to a great home in Eugene, Oregon. The day prior, I found a discarded piece of plywood in the trash area just opposite […]

What’s New?

It’s almost the middle of June, and half the year has slipped away already.  Here in New England, we skipped right over spring, and are now in the middle of a typical summer heat wave. There has been a lot of activity in the studio over the past week, and the next big event on […]

Fashion Statement

Just in time for summer, my first run of custom tee shirts has arrived.  These shirts are a quality Anvil combed ring spun cotton and were silk screened locally by the masters at Hemlock Ink.  I am very pleased with the results!  A very big thanks to Jason from HappyScarf.com who did the photography for me. This first run […]

Home Is Where The Heart Is

As promised, this week’s post is a tribute to all of the generous souls that have chosen to have my work in their homes. It’s not often that I get to see my canvases after they leave my hands, and I thought it would be a great idea to create an album showing their final […]
