Bringing a slain painting back from death’s door. I think most people would agree, moving is hell. It’s something I dread, but Moving happens. To be fair, things actually went fine overall with our move a year and a half ago, at least until I discovered one of my paintings did not come out of it […]


A Portrait’s Journey; Part 4

Finishing a Painting Last but not least… the final post has arrived in this series documenting the creation of a one of a kind portrait of a one of a kind Thoroughbred named Squeaky!

A Portrait’s Journey; Part 3


Day Trip South to Sonoita, Arizona!

About one hour (and a lovely drive) south of Tucson is a small town called Sonoita, a bit cooler and surrounded by rolling hills of grasslands framed by soft pastel mountains. All in all a great escape from the hot, dry desert up north! And of course they give people plenty of reason to make […]

I […]


Smelling the Roses in May…

As I’m preparing for my first visit to the Kentucky Derby, I’m reflecting on all the years watching it on TV wondering what the experience is like in person. While pondering, I’m also getting a collection of work ready for a local solo show in Tucson, and when I return… besides having a lot of […]

Going Solo in April… No Fools!

I’m on my way to Nashville soon, my first trip to Tennessee and the farthest I’ve been in the South! I’m looking forward to getting a fresh change of scenery, certainly I’ll enjoy the cool weather – it even looks like rain is likely while I’m there – a bonus for this long time desert dweller! […]


Springing Forward…

Greetings everyone, I hope this finds the warmth and renewal of spring emerging all around you… if not, blame the groundhog!  Like so many, I’ve been busy.  Besides the Del Mar piece (see update below), I have been preparing for two solo shows and a trip to the Derby… and that’s all happening before the year is […]
