A painting in progress….not sure where to go from here since the original intent has been altered by the process of making the picture. I do these things and there isn’t a big, deeply meaningful motivational driving force. I don’t know… what do you think?
Had a fantastic experience with the Verge Center for the Arts here in Sacramento, and a pop-up exhibition featuring some of my work along with the work of Jason Clark. There was a screening of the bio-pic “Tom of Finland” and a showing of photos, paintings and multimedia works, and some fantastic conversations and meaningful interactions. Here are just a few of the images from the event.
So many thanks to Arianna and the crew at the Verge Center for the Arts, artist Jason Clark, organizer Ronn Darwin, Fernando, Mike, and all of the people who came out and made the event a success. Thank you!

Back to painting for me. 16 x 20 inches, acrylic on canvas, produced in Sacramento, CA in May of 2018, This is based on a small watercolor painting I did some years ago. You can see some major and minor changes in design and coloration, but the basics are there. I will probably continue to work with this basic imagery. There is a post-cubist element to the construction and design, and an attention to color application and, in the case of the new work, a painterly approach. I would love to hear comments on the images – what impact do they have on you?
