Good Day!

Just a little practice figure sketching last night of a nude model. Wanted to just simply focus on flowing lines and giving my brain an exercise in size, symmetry and proportion.

HAPPY NEWS! Quick announcement

Greetings everyone!

Just wanted to announce that artwork pieces I recently submitted into the Vernon Filley Art Museum’s Ninnescah Valley Call For Artist show and exhibition, located in Pratt, Kansas, have been ACCEPTED for jury!  THIS IS BIG for me.  I’ll be up against lots of artists throughout the entire State and up against more popular medias, but the fact that I even got accepted is enough to tickle me purple!!  Okay, just wanted to share.  Wish me luck and thanks for following – WOOO WHOOOO!!

Art display at Salina – discontinued


Sadly, I have to report that today I was notified of a new policy implemented at the Salina Innovation Foundation in Salina, KS, which has resulted in the termination of my artwork being displayed at their art gallery. Oh well…life goes on. But I sure would like to thank those who helped encourage me and supported me in getting up there, as well as those who purchased my art.  Thanks Val, Allen, Yvonne, TL, Georgia Lady (AGG), Mr. B, etc.

There’s always somewhere else to go and bigger fish to catch 🙂
