The Highway Gallery

I am pleased to announce that several of my paintings will be exhibited in the Second Annual Highway Gallery Exhibit at the Florida Mining Gallery located in Jacksonville, Florida. The physical exhibition will run from August 2 through September 19th. The opening reception starts at 7pm this Friday, August 2. The Highway Gallery's Exhibit will then continue to be on display on various digital billboards in the Jacksonville area over the next 12 months. For more information about the exhibit, you can visit the Florida Mining Gallery's website or facebook.

The featured paintings include Swimmer and Living Room with Tent, along with several others.

Swimmer, 12" x 16", oil on canvas

Living Room with Tent,  24" x 36", oil on canvas

Cover Art: "Blue Eyes When" for "Picked Strings" by Liz Robbins

I am pleased to be a part of Liz Robbins' newest publication of poems. Picked Strings is an audio chapbook of poems, written and read by Liz Robbins. You can listen and download this book at EAT Poems, click here or here. I created the painting Blue Eyes When, as the cover image for this collection. For obvious reasons, my favorite poem from the collection is An American Artist Marries

Here is the history of the cover painting, as always I am better at documenting some steps more than others. This painting started by covering up an older work, with a source photo change towards the end.
