Art 101 CHANGE: I will be conducting a workshop on artist statements at the Getting in the Game event this Saturday, June 1st. The location has been CHANGED to the Rosewood Arts Centre at 2655 Olson Drive, Kettering. The event lasts from 1-5:30pm and costs $5.
Work It!: I have four pieces in the works and one I just finished. The new Alice pieces, It Isn’t Manners (the image in this header) and Who Are You? will be documented as time lapse videos. I have an abstract series I am working on currently nicknamed “the grays.” The first in the series, Respiration, is finished and you can see a few studio shots of it in the Lowdown. I am continuing to make slow progress on my flaming chrysanthemum/tiger piece, but still a long way to go.
Web: We are currently working on a new website! My AMAZING intern, Amanda, is plugging away on the spreadsheet. I will continue to post studio shots, but I will probably hold off on posting new finished pieces until it is up.
ROLL CAMERA: A fabulous video about the Riffe Gallery exhibit, Here’s Looking at You: Portraits in Ohio, curated by Kay Koeninger. The exhibit includes the work of 14 Ohio artists who stretch the idea of what a portrait can be. My interview starts at 12:50.
LOCO LOCAL: I am starting to work on a multi-media interactive installation for the University of Dayton called Identification. The opening will be January 21, 2014. I have some time to pull it together, but if the next six months are anything like the beginning of this year, it will be here before I know it!

What an artist learns matters little. What he himself discovers has a real worth for him, and gives him the necessary incitement to work. (Emil Nolde)
“O painter, take care lest the greed for gain prove a stronger incentive than renown in art, for to gain this renown is a far greater thing than is the renown of riches.” ~ Leonardo da Vinci
