Wood and Water

Lately, I have developed a fondness for wood.  Some of my recent favorite pieces are the large 24″ x 48″ that I did some time ago.  I also just recently finished the rectangular table for my friend, and I have recently purchased a few 18″ x 24″ panels. There is something about the solidness of […]

Friendship and Gratitude!

Where would we all be without our friends?  This week’s post is dedicated to some of my favorite artistic souls that I know from the net. I came to know Douglas Hoover via the very talented Manon Doyle.  He is an extremely gifted artist living in North Carolina.  His style is unmistakable.  If you want a […]

Progression / Boston Scenery / In the Clouds

You may have seen my posts on my Facebook Page this week, but I spent most of the week in the studio working on a new wood panel.  I was happy with it until I put the two shades of blue in the middle.  Now it looks too busy.  I will have to stare at […]

A Very Dirty Boy

Last week I talked briefly about being out of the studio due to some extra work that I picked up.  The above photo shows me after a very long and dirty day in the sun digging tree stumps, removing brush and pulling weeds. I have always enjoyed physical work for more than one reason.  Even […]

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 […]
