This is about you.

I have been writing my newsletter since April of 2009, the year I turned pro. Since then I've benefited from your interest in my art. Either obliquely or directly, you have made my career possible. You might have been there from the beginning or you might have joined last week. Either way, I am indebted to you.

UN|realism is a show for you. Only a small fraction of my supporters and fans ever have the chance to physically attend a gallery opening featuring my work. It would be nice if art was accessible and enjoyed without restriction. That's why this upcoming solo show will be an entirely online event. Everyone gets to see the unveiling of my new work at the exact same time and in the exact same manner, no matter where you live. And for those who buy art, everything will be available for instant purchase. Mark your calendars:

May 17th
Sunday 6-9 PM
Pacific Standard Time

Here, in your homes, on the internet. Enjoy some wine and cheese. Invite your friends. This will be an interactive experience! More about the show will be revealed.
Stay tuned.

Lovely work, you manage to use some traditional classics in new ways with a signature style that's all your own.

Your use of color is deeply inspirational -never have still lifes looked so radiant! I especially like 'yellow plum', it's breathtaking.
The way you can still strongly see the texture of the brushstokes makes me wonder, how long do thse paintings take? Do you do a lot of pre-planning?

Thank you much. I make sure to have a clear mental picture of how I want the painting to turn out. Every painting is different, but time might range from 1 day (a mini) to 2 weeks (large). Whatever it takes.

I've always liked still life, but you turn yours into something absolutely spectacular. Thank you for sharing!
