Show at my New Gallery


I didn't think I'd be in another bigger show this year, but I didn't know I'd be picked up by a new gallery. They have about 15 paintings, several have sold already before the show has even opened so that's a good sign. This is a dummy for an ad that will be in South West Art soon. The show is December 9th in SLO. Hope you can make it. There will also be a small paintings Christmas show at Segil fine art on December 2nd.

That'd make a great poster. Hint, hint.

Hint the SIZE OF A FREAKIN' FREIGHT TRAIN hint.

There is something really warm and inviting about this piece. The way that you capture the reality yet give the train a mysterious quality is fascinating. It's no wonder that a new gallery has scooped you up! Congratulations!

Been hiding this one, eh? Something about the actual numbers on the train, the little details, really takes it up a notch.

If you're ever in North Dakota, Minnesota, or something within a day's reasonable driving, I would definitely make the trip.

Hey BG,

What's great about America is any young intrepid can organize a workshop with an out of state artist by getting a half a dozen artists to commit. Said artist can then bring a brace of originals discounted for students to be put on display for educational and financial gain. Sometimes this can be done in collaboration with an art store or art gallery/ framer or even a bed and breakfast that might see the bodies it attracts as a benefit.
