Big Changes Looming on the Horizon

Really Big Changes.....

I am preparing to move to Los Angeles. Its something I've wanted to do for a long time but due to recent events (six months ago), can I now make it happen. I'm doing this on a bit of a whim and not necessarily a prayer...but a dream. And a desire to DO SOMETHING with my life. The last few months I've been feeling as if I'm on the brink of...something. Just anticipating...something. Its been dizzying.

And its all a matter of "making it happen". Its all up to me. And the time is now. Now or never. Take the plunge. And all that.

If I don't post another entry before, I'll see you on the other side.

"New Year Goodness" Onward, 2017!

Anton Yelchin

I've just added to Gallery II, the Anton Yelchin tribute portrait. And how tragic, horrible and so sad to lose someone so talented and so young. Usually these tribute portraits are a cathartic means to accept these loses being experienced in 2016. But this one was hard to take. I, of course, didn't know the young man, but I still cried a bit as I was finishing up this portrait.

Hey, sorry for the long break since the last post. Been busy and a (sadly) big change to my personal life has happened and I've had to focus on that. On top of that, there's still work to do.

BIG ANNOUNCEMENT. I have been selected to be one of 54 artists in the "Salon" section of the ArtOrder Invitational: The Journal. Am I excited? Thrilled, even? Incredibly honored and floored that I've been included?  ALL OF THE ABOVE, and then some. The list of artists contained in this book is honestly, a heaven of artists. There are artists in here who are my heroes. And I'm gonna be in there, too.

I'll be in another book that will be coming out, hopefully, before 2017. And I am submitting art to another to see if I'll get in that one, too. No time to rest on your laurels, gotta keep getting up and go to the next opportunity.

New Work Added for 2016

Sad passing of some GREATS of music and film have inspired some new portrait paintings (digital). As I type this, I prepare to paint up a Glenn Frey portrait. He passed away, yesterday.
