Show Season Is In Full Swing

It’s that time of year when the weather cools down, and I have a different art show every weekend. There have been a few shows dampened by wet fall weather, but all-in-all, it’s been a lot of fun.

Here’s a video I made at the Ohio River Valley Artist Guild show:

I’m no videographer, and all the footage was with my cell phone, but overall, I think it’s pretty good!


If we haven’t seen each other yet this season, there are still two opportunities.

  • Hyde Park – October 4th in Cincinnati
  • KY Guild Art fair – October 10-11th at the Indian Fort Theatre in Berea, KY

If you don’t want to have to deal with me, and just want to see my work in a truly exquisite gallery, stop by the EAT Gallery on Second Street in Maysville, KY. I am proud to be one of their featured artists.


If you are shopping in Louisville, be sure to stop by the S. Bayly Boutique. It’s a really cool shop with good vibes and great art…including mine! It’s at the corner of Lexington Ave, and S. Bayly in Louisville, KY.Untitled_Panorama1

So, I’m looking forward to the next couple of shows…then I’m REALLY looking forward to some time for hiking, canoeing, camping, and wandering around in general with my sketchbook and paints. (Tag a longs welcome!)

New Paintings

I finished a few major paintings this week.  They are larger than my average paintings, and will look great over a fireplace or couch.  They all have prospective buyers (collectors who visited my studio while the paintings were on my easel) , but I have not decided on the prices yet, so there is a chance if you are interested.
