Between teaching 4 3-credit hour art classes at Aims Community College, painting works for the second chapter of the "Elemental" show - "Principled," and participating in a few small regional shows, fall has been busy! (This doesn't even include making 23 gallons of wine from the grapes in our backyard and struggling through the loss of our crippled, geriatric German Shepherd, Lazarus.

We are taking the "Elemental" show on the road and will hang it in January of 2017 at the Parker Arts, Culture, and Event Center (PACE). I have new pieces hanging at the Madison and Main Gallery in Greeley and the Columbine Gallery in Loveland, Colorado.
This summer was filled with a 17 day trip to Alaska to celebrate 40 years of marriage with my best friend and companion, Deborah! Needless to say, a great number of the images that will show up on my canvases this coming year will be inspired by the spectacular scenes of that portion of our world.
