Good News! Two of my pieces were accepted into a group exhibition at the Centennial Art Gallery in Kent Washington.This year’s jurors were artists Randi Ganulin and Eduardo Calderón. The show will open June 3rd and continue until August 31st. The two pieces shown to the left, Consequential and Latent are the ones included.
This postcard is from "Good Friday" in 1986 at Da Gallery in Pomona California. This was one of the first group shows that I participated not affiliated with a college or university. I displayed an altarpiece for the first time here.

“I am an intuitive painter, despite the ordered appearance of my paintings, and am fascinated by the infinite ra...
Most of the pieces for One and All are assembled. The samml pieces that fit into the cutouts will be painted like galvanized metal (I want to keep practicing). The background will begin to be built up with glazes, and the rock fish primed and painted (hopefully) soon.
