It’s a wonderful thing when the blog world becomes the […]

Lately, I have developed a fondness for wood.  Some of my recent favorite pieces are the large 24″ x 48″ that I did some time ago.  I also just recently finished the rectangular table for my friend, and I have recently purchased a few 18″ x 24″ panels. There is something about the solidness of […]

I started the week off by boxing up and shipping the Slice panel.  It’s a piece that I am very connected to, but I was happy to know that it was going to a great home in Eugene, Oregon. The day prior, I found a discarded piece of plywood in the trash area just opposite […]

Home Is Where The Heart Is

As promised, this week’s post is a tribute to all of the generous souls that have chosen to have my work in their homes. It’s not often that I get to see my canvases after they leave my hands, and I thought it would be a great idea to create an album showing their final […]

What a Difference!

It’s finally starting to look and feel like spring here in New England.  It’s seems like it was only a couple of weeks ago that we were knee deep in snow.  I was out walking today, and my favorite tree looks much different that it did when I talked about it last.  Things are shaping […]
