2017-2019 Paintings (part three)

  These are various paintings that were not a part of any show, some went to Tew Galleries in Atlanta others to clients homes. Maybe you noticed..I have switched to painting on canvas almost exclusively now. I found I enjoy the "tooth" of the surface as opposed to the smooth wood panels.Thanks for looking..

Quartet 16x18 oil/canvas 2017

Still Life 40x35 oil/canvas 2013-2019
This is a heavily reworked older painting..the original always bugged me, seemed flat, much better now. (If you scroll down you can see the first version)

2 Years Of Painting (The Present)

This concludes a tour of what has been happening in the studio the last two years. 

At the moment I am working on a website, and contemplating..instagram. Self promotion has not been a strength of mine, (that was always the galleries' job), but lately it has occurred to me that I also need to participate in the creation of my narrative (we used to call that.. "branding"..narrative sounds cozier). What artist hasn't stated, "the work speaks for itself"..I have and they don't. The majority of viewers want to know things, "where are you from, what does it mean, how do you do it...?", these are the questions I am frequently asked . The answers can come from different sources, the dealer, critic or your next door neighbor. The artist has a unique perspective on their mode of expression, sometimes contrary to what is perceived by onlookers, both are valid, but it can be interesting to hear what source has to say...see you in two years..(kidding).

  The paintings below are currently featured in a show at Tew Galleries in Atlanta called, The Painted Figure, Oct 21-Nov 18.
