MOVING TO ARIZONA!

If all goes according to plan, Ginny and I will be moving to Arizona mid December. We are selling our house here in Bonners Ferry, ID and if all goes right, it should close on the 14th. We are moving to Bisbee, Arizona. Hopefully we'll be there before Xmas. I'll keep you all up to date. Wish up luck!

Taking Holiday Commissioned Pieces

I'm accepting commissioned pieces for the holidays. I have two that I'm working on now but have time to get your commissioned painting done before Christmas if the project isn't too big. Too big would be an over-sized piece or something where the detail is so precise that I won't have time to finish it for you by Xmas. But feel free to ask. Here's my latest commissioned painting. Called JAZZED. 56 inches wide and 20 high.

ART FOR SALE!

I've now set up a store right on my website so you can purchase paintings directly from me and we can leave out the "middleman". And contact me about any of my art for sale and see if I'm open to offers. All shipping within the USA is free. I'll be adding more art very soon!

Apologies to everyone!

I just now realized that I had not created a gallery for paintings in 2016! So, I went ahead and started one and will add more images very soon. I apologize to you people out there that actually give a crap about what I do for art for neglecting my own site which some of you I can imagine stop by from time to time to see what I've been up to. Neglecting my own website is one thing that I've been neglecting. Ok, so I'll "snap to" and get this party of a website rolling again!

By golly!

It has been a long time since my last post. I haven't been painting a whole lot these last couple of weeks. I feel that I first need to mix up some new colors. I have been offering and selling various prints. Contact me about having any of my works from my portfolio made into a print. Mainly from 2011 till now. Some examples are: walk_the_land black_gown2

hurt again!

so, don't know if you have been following my saga of 2015. the one where i ruptured the quad tendon in my left leg. i was recovering quite well due to a lot of hard work on my part. anyway, let's cut to the chase. i fucking re-injured it while at a dog park in sandpoint, id AFTER i had just had my 3 month checkup with the orthopedic surgeon. AFTER he told me that it was healing so nicely. then i do something so incredibly stupid as to actually enter the dog park. just my dog and some purple-bearded dude with an iphone attached to his head. the dogs were getting ready to rumble. his being a pitbull scared me in that i thought it might actually kill my dog. somehow i got twisted and turned in just the right way to tear the tendon. it is worse this time around. i had the surgery on monday, may 4th. seemed to go ok EXCEPT i never ever thought i would have a full cast on my leg. and apparently it has to stay there for six weeks! so this makes life tough on both ginny and i. she's my caregiver again and feel horrible about that part. i have plenty of art supplies so i plan to get down to some painting.

Gallery 2015 added!

Finally, after weeks of spending most of my time and energy recuperating from my leg injury, I have at least several new paintings for 2015 and have added them to my gallery. As I get better, I will be doing more paintings. Hopefully I can squeeze out something good inspired by my quad tendon rupture.

so the journey continues…

Thank you everyone for their donations and gift baskets and support as I get through this crappy leg injury. I am now close to six weeks post op and I can actually bend my leg about 40-50 degrees without significant pain. I am walking around the house now with just one crutch. Was able to take my first shower without any assistance and could be driving again in the next couple of weeks. I haven't been able to stand and paint and therefore most of the art I have created this year have been smaller pieces. Anyway, the journey continues..
