>>>> Member kudos!

I recently sold 10 images to EASi Engineering in New Albany. The images range in size from 9×12 to 4’ x 3.5’ in size. The images help decorate their new office building in New Albany. Visitors can see some of the work in the lobby area of the building.

March 10th – I helped lead a public art work at the Bryn Du Mansion in conjunction with their art exhibit. An original base art design was painted on a 4’ x 8’ plywood panel that had been painted with chalkboard paint. We invited everyone coming to see the Bryn Du art exhibit to join us in chalking the panel. A time lapse video can be seen here on YouTube: https://youtu.be/wkq5B0sI1Mc

Starting April 12, I will be teaching a teen workshop on large format chalk painting in conjunction with the Zanesville Art Museum. June 1st, the graduates of the workshop will be working along with me at the Zanesville First Friday Art Walk. I will be reproducing an Albert Bierstadt painting from the museum’s collection during their artwarlk.

If you are in the area, stop by!
