Spring has Sprung

The desert is heating up and the longer days are keeping it hot!  I wonder if I will ever become acclimated to this environment?  Fortunately I will be traveling out of state to escape some of the temperatures, starting off with my attendance to the Oil Painters of America exhibition in a few days.  My painting “Duck, Duck, Duck, Goose” was accepted into the show and shipped out this week.

 The event is held in Fredericksburg, TX at the acclaimed InSight Gallery.  For more information on the exhibition and works you can go to:

Following this exhibition I will be traveling to my Solo exhibition at Art on the Boulevard and teaching my Oregon workshop the first week of June.  The 2 day plein air workshop will be held June 8th & 9th on beautiful Sauvie Island and will include access to private lands.  If you have never been to Sauvie Island, it is full of wildlife preserves and pristine farms surrounded by and infused with waterways.  The workshop will be limited to 15 students to ensure individual attention and is $250 for both days.  I have a few slots still open.  If you are interested in securing a slot or have any questions, please contact me at

The Solo exhibition will be held on June 6th at Art on the Boulevard in Vancouver, WA.  I will have 33 paintings on display.  The title of the show is “A Sense of Place” and includes a wide range of subject matter.  Here is the postcard and a sneak peak of some of the work.

 I look forward to seeing you if you are able to attend any of these events.  I hope your spring has started out great and that life is good.
