Boeing 727, Mojave at the Wendt Gallery

16x24 oil on wood

I'm pleased to announce that I'll be participating in the Wendt Galleries 2008 group Landscape show. This painting: Boeing 727, Mojave is one of the one's that will be in the show. I've posted some of my desert Jet paintings before, but I don't think this one has been shown yet.

I'm not on the promo card, but that's ok I'm the new guy. See the Wendt link---->>>

South Broadway, Los Angeles

12x16 oil on wood.

Here is another downtown cityscape where the big old buildings "end". I often feel like I'm in New York down there. I have a two shows coming up with cityscapes themes so there will be more. I was again trying to abstract a bit as I liked the elements and how they overlapped into interesting shapes. I also was trying to be a little bit darker and "ash can" with the color than usual.

Parking Available

18x 24 oil on wood

First I just wanted to toot my and Tim Horn's horn that we got a little feature in the current American Art Collector. I hope some of you can come to our July 12th show at Segil Fine Art. See link--->>>>>

This is a downtown parking lot in a slow moment on the weekend. I have been waiting to try a simpler, headed toward abstracted style for a bit. It was a big stated goal that kind of went into limbo on me. It’s still on the agenda, but I like so many styles, it’s hard to pick a look and stick with it. That repeat for success idea just doesn’t work for me, it goes against the natural evolution process in my brain. I already cringe at the idea that I have repeated myself with some compositions/ subjects/ lighting yet the irony is the more I repeat the better it might be for a breakout into the bigger art market/ fame racket.
