Archive for November 2nd, 2008


I am currently working (when I can pull myself from the presidential race) on my next show which is a solo exhibition of new work titled “Now…” which opens November 22, 2008 at the Haen Gallery in downtown Asheville, NC.  The Haen is a beautiful gallery space  that has expanded in the past year, nearly doubling its size.  It’s always exciting to see the work hanging in the Haen as it really shows off the work well.

The piece above is titled “HeartLand” and is 16″ wide by 18″ high.  It is a mixed media piece done with primarily acrylics and acrylic inks on paper.  The style and simplicity in this piece really appeals to me.  Much of the feeling is carried by the color and texture in the sky as well as the contrast at the horizon between the light in the sky and the dark of the ground.

To me, there is a great sense of security in this painting, a safe haven from the turbulence of the outside world.  It’s a theme that seems to come up often in my work.

This is just one of the new pieces for this show.  I’ve started posted new work on my website for those interested and for those of you in the Asheville area, please stop in and see the show and if possible, come to the opening on the 22nd and say hello.
