For those of you in the Boise area, I will be having a show at the Brumfield Gallery (formerly Basement Gallery) in Hyde Park in March. There will be some high-end paintings but most of the exhibition will be drawings in the more affordable range. This is one such drawing. About 3.3 x 3.5 inches on paper.

This is a great opportunity for those who can't go and attend classes somewhere. It's an online program started by Rebecca Guay. Very intense with focused learning from specific artists. You can take the 13 week class from me or other of the faculty involved. It's a unique opportunity for me to be included with such distinguished artists. Click on the picture or title below for link.

Just finished new painting. Sometimes I feel like my voice slips away a little. I need apiece like this to bring it back. Cosmetic surgery seems to be a recurring theme for me.

Partially as exercise, breaking in new stuff, and partially as show material, new local show coming up, and partially as trying something new I am doing some things based on random reference. It's a fun exercise that I never get to try because of time but these will work well for an upcoming show here. A little more based on reference than my usual work but always with something. . .
