Never Nudes and Puppy Dogs

Hey everybody!

I wanted to share my latest painting which is for Idiot Box 2 at Gallery 1988. The theme is everyone's favorite television show and I just couldn't help myself, I had to do an homage to Arrested Development. Now why I chose to do Tobias in his never-nude shorts, licking a frozen banana with nuts as a fuzzy blue monster, I can't readily say, other than it made me laugh.

I hope he brings a smile to your sweet faces as well!

"Mr. Gay" acrylic on maple, 8.5" x 8.5"

If you're interested in purchasing him, he's available over at Gallery 1988.

Now for the puppy dogs! I recently had the pleasure of showing my work at Baker+Hesseldenz Gallery in Tuscon, AZ for their spring group show. I painted two new "I'm Not Hungry" pieces (both originals sold), "Maple" and "Winslow".

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           I was thrilled that "Maple" was even shown in an article about the show in American Art Collector Magazine alongside some amazing artists like Van Arno, Fabio D'Aroma and Fay Helfer.

If you're interested in these two little pups, I have prints as well as mounted prints in my shop and just because you guys are so special to me (seriously), use the code SPECIAL and get 10% off everything you buy until May 10th. Visit and have fun!


Pet portraits that I can get behind.

Lili Chin has been so wonderful to me in the past, it's finally my turn to reciprocate. She has been drawing pet portraits and donating 20% of the proceeds to Boston Buddies, a Boston Terrier rescue in Southern California.

But maybe you would rather have your portrait money go to another rescue, you say? She'll donate to any rescue you want and her drawings are amazing. Her prices are extremely reasonable and she shows you step by step how she makes each portrait and what you will get for your money. I mean, for one pet, her price is $100! and you get an 8" x 10" signed print and the high-resolution file for more printouts! You won't find a better deal than this, I'm telling you :D


So go over to Doggie Drawings and order up a portrait of your pet and your $ will go to the shelter of your choice.

Happy New Year!
