Santa Fe

I've recently returned from Santa Fe, New Mexico. I lived in Santa Fe for five years in the 90's and still hold it dear as one of my homes. I've been returning the past four winter/springs for stays of two to eight weeks. I alwasy paint while I'm there and this year I painted only watercolors. Watercolrs are so much lighter and cleaner while traveling. My favorite thing in the world is to wander around a strange town and mark my path by sketching along the way. Santa Fe is so picturesque that there is no limit to the things to paint. Check out my new watercolors here and in the watercolor section of Art.

I am proud to announce a major, one man show, at Frameworks in San Luis Obispo, CA. The exhibit will run from February 2nd to April 25th. Special dates include the Art after Dark tours in San Luis Obispo the nights of February 2nd and April 6th. Come and visit me in person at the artist's reception on March 2nd. There will be approximatly 25 pieces in the show featuring my best work, including some terrific new paintings of the area. The title of the exhibit is "Local Color" which means the show will be almost exclusively scenes of the Central Coast.
