Been a busy time...

It's been a while since I've updated my blog so I figured I'd get it done.

Things are busy here...

New studio is up and running:

I chose to keep the studio mostly for my engineering based art, the stuff I have to build and continue to create my oil paintings in my home based studio.  It's a great space in what used to be a stamping plant of some sorts.  Located at 333 Midland St. Highland Park MI, I am in Studio F.  Generally I get down to work there 2 or 3 days a week.  My daughter and I are in the process of looking for a home in the greater Detroit area so the commute will be far less.  Taking advantage of a MICHDA program where they help folks buy homes.  And as it turns out, I've been looking in the same neighborhood that I grew up in in Detroit.  Feels like I've come full circle. 

Now for updates on work: 

This piece in another in my series: Jesus of Suburbia called "Daddy found God in a bottle".

Made a great deal of progress on "The Genesis Plant" Working on a paper to describe how all of humanity came from this plant in one elegant fashion.

Finished this part of a much broader installation called "Primitive".

Made progress toward finishing "Something Wicked This Way Comes".

Got this ready to make a mold of for what will become a hanging lamp.  Not sure what to call it yet. 

And of course still producing abstracts, these are acrylic on canvas.

Opening day for The Sacred Feminine

Opening day is rapidly approaching for The Sacred Feminine show.  This is the first show my daughter curated and I could not be more proud of her.  The selection of art is fantastic.  I hope to see many of you there. 

And for those interested, I will be there all 4 days of the show and will be opening my studio to the public... stop on by.

Here is an image just after moving in and you will see art there for the above show, it's now much more organized and workable.

Easel Helpers - New Product Announcement

Hi folks, I've created a new product for oil painters called "Easel Helper". It lifts the canvas up enough so you can work on the very bottom with ease. I have two configurations and two different materials. Pictured here is the tapered configuration in plastic and solid pewter. The straight configuration is identical except there is no tapper on the base.

Price is as follows: plastic helpers are $7per pair and the pewter helpers are $20 per pair. The prices are the same regardless of configuration and does NOT include shipping which I expect to be between $2 ~ $5.

If interested send an email to:
