New painting and new gallery representation

"Path to the Beach- Siesta Key", 16x20, oil on linen

I am very pleased to announce my new affiliation with Collector's Gallery and Framery.

As an artist I feel that it is of utmost importance to find gallery representation in a world that increasingly looks to the Internet as a purchase vehicle. While internet businesses for artists are certainly thriving, and most likely will continue to do so, the value for a collector to see an original piece of artwork before making that all- important purchase that he’ll need to live with for years to come, cannot be underestimated. Over and over I have received emails from clients who have purchased my artwork online that say something to the effect of, “So much more beautiful in person, than the online photo ever indicated!”

For that reason I am truly happy and grateful that Leah Sherman, gallery owner and entrepreneur, has decided to take me on as a new artist in her gallery. Collector's Gallery and Framery has been a mainstay of island shopping and art collecting in downtown Venice, Florida for over 25 years. My new piece, “Path to the Beach- Siesta Key” depicts the area that I know best right now, as I have painted on this very beach countless times while ignoring heat and deflecting bugs and inquisitive tourists as I swished and swirled color upon my canvas to my heart's content. I certainly hope that by continuing to paint scenes of Southwest Florida, I can not only be an asset to the owners of Collectors Gallery and Framery in Venice, Florida, but I can also bring the Sunshine State's wild and incredibly beautiful landscapes into homes across America.

If you would like to purchase the above painting, please contact Leah at (941)488-3029 or send an email to .

Peek-a-boo bouquet

"Peek-a-Boo Bouquet, 8x10 inches in wrapped canvas (Note: click on the picture to see more detail.)

Here is another abstract floral that I painted yesterday- it seems like I'm finally back into my daily painting mode again! The painting has lots of fresh color notes, which are enhanced by the neutral background. It measures 8x10 inches on wrapped canvas, and the sides are painted to match, so a frame is not necessary unless desired.
