Gallery show coming up!

Hello again,
 I invite you to 'check out' my most recent cityscape paintings, created especially for a show at DK Gallery in Marietta.  DK is a prestigious gallery right on the historic Marietta Square. The show is called  'Oh the places I will go', and will also feature two other fine artists, Shane McDonald and Terence Gasca.  The show will be up from Setember 5th through the end of the month, with a special opening reception to be held on Friday night,  September 7th,  from 5-9pm, coinciding with Marietta Square's monthly Artwalk.
Live jazz, plus some tasty treats and beverages, too.  Hope you can fall by, check it out, drop in , it will be a happening! (that's about all the 60's lingo i can come up with at the moment).

upcoming september show

Above is one of my new paintings to be presented at a September show at the popular DK Gallery, on Marietta Square.  I plan to have eight new paintings in the show; and they'll be a couple other artists participating as well. The theme of the show is related to landscapes and cityscapes.  More details forthcoming, but in the meantime I invite you to drop by the gallery for this great show,  starting September 5, with opening reception to be during the Marietta Art Walk, on Friday night, September 7th.  Show remains until end of September.  Hope to see you there!

the passing summer

Hello again
...sorry to pull you away for a minute from the exciting Olympic TV coverage of ping-pong, badminton, the spice girls and george michael, all which exemplify so well the  high standards and glory of  athletic competition, but just thought i'd remind you once more of the upcoming class and workshop events coming soon (as posted previously).....some of them start as early as next week!...would love to have you join in.

The above painting is from this past April's Southeastern Plein Air Festival, in Gadsden, Alabama. There's some interesting rock formations there....
