Grampa Hoogly

Ed and I were at the farmer's market the other week and we immediately spotted the Ugli fruit. He wanted to eat it and I wanted to paint it. I glanced to the left and there were perfect, little kumquats. The contrast in size, texture and color made me want to paint even more.

I present "Grampa Hoogly",

 He'll go up for sale Saturday, June 4th at 8pm EDT in my shop.

L'amour Or Less

I'm not sure what to write. These two are the first paintings I've done in months. A departure in a few ways - a set, smiling and nothing creepy. It's been a long, long road back to this point and I'm happy they came out alright. I'll let you know when they'll go up for sale - and yes, they will be sold as a couple. Enjoy!


Art Amsterdam 2010

I was asked to participate in this year's Art Amsterdam 2010 by artKitchen gallery. Their theme is food and they are putting together a book to accompany the show. "Captain Kawaii" was selected for the book and below is the first of what I hope will be four total pieces I will have at the show.

"Slice and Dice" 15.5" x 9" acrylic on custom wood plaque.

 Since things have been a bit difficult on both myself and Ed, we decided that it was time for a short vacation. We've never been to Amsterdam (or the whole of Europe for that matter) and will be flying in the last day of the show. Enjoy.

Well, Would You Look at That...

I made a leap a couple months ago and actually went out into the great unknown in hopes of trying to promote myself. Ed and I went to Asbury Park as it's a hotbed of galleries and shops. In a lovely series of events we were able to sit down and meet Jenn at Parlor Gallery. What a lovely gal. Actually everyone we meet in Asbury is gracious and kind. Odd for New Jersey. Maybe it's the ocean air that relaxes people.

So Jenn at Parlor Gallery asked Ed and I to join in their Holiday Art Show opening up next week, Friday, December 11th at 7pm. How cool is that? All the art is going to be specially priced under $500 and there'll be a DJ and food and drinks and Ed and I :D

This is the largest piece that I've done to date. A whopping 11" x 11", it's called "A Cold Day"

If you are anywhere in the area stop by, say hello, see some art, buy some art and I'm sure you'll fall in love with Asbury Park (if you haven't already).
