Details to come, but I will be having a solo exhibition at the Westhaven Center for the Arts, near Trinidad, California, in November and December. It will be a retrospective to celebrate my 20th year as an oil painter. I’ll be showing work that has been accepted into juried shows and/or won awards, along with a look back at my artistic roots as a kid who loved to draw and then worked for twenty years as a sign painter, graphic designer and freelance illustrator. I studied the craft of oil painting with a local artist for two years from 1994 to 1995. In 1997 I took a wildlife painting workshop (wow, people might PAY me to paint wildlife!) and decided to make the move to painting in oil full time, focusing on what I’ve always loved most as a subject….animals.
I’ll occasionally be posting work that will be in the show between now and when it opens. In the meantime you can see that I would not be able to do the preparations without the enthusiastic assistance of Peregrin, our 18 month old rough collie boy.
