Hello Everyone!

Last year was the first year I didn't complete a traditional painting in... decades. Wow that's kind of crazy. I'd already cut back on my art show work purposefully --as the art show circuit was grinding me to dust-- but then covid hit and all art shows came to a standstill. The art show world has since picked up again but nothing really came up for me last year. I've always wanted a place for my traditional painting in my workflow so I'm excited that I have multiple group shows lined up this year.

The first show is a group show called, Existential, which actually opened last week at Antler Gallery in Portland. Sorry for the late heads up! The last couple weeks have been chock full and I didn't have a moment to send out a Newsletter. Just got too much on my giant plate right now! It's a mostly good problem to have.

It's a show themed around endangered species so I went did what had to be done. I painted a red panda. Here's my piece entitled, "Champion of the Rare."

Champion of the Rare - Oil & Acrylic on Wood Panel - 2023

Felt really good to finish a painting. Looking forward to making more this year.

This piece is still available for purchase. There are also a lot of amazing artists with their amazing work in the show so do yourself a favor and check it out. You can find the work from the show here:

I have more announcements to make but I'm going to save them for a separate Newsletter as I don't want this to get too bloated. So expect another Newsletter in a couple days.
