The Bluff Show at Maxwell Alexander Gallery

"Cliffs Like Indian Blankets" (8x10 o/l) SOLD

Maxwell Alexander Gallery in Los Angeles will host the "Artist Retreat, Bluff Utah"show -- a collection of paintings by gallery artists that were done on location and in the studio from a group trip to Bluff Utah last October. About 15 gallery artists spent several days exploring and painting in southeastern Utah. Later, larger studio pieces were created from this trip as well and will be on display at Maxwell Alexander, opening March 12, 2022.

      "Crescent Moon" (24x24 o/p) SOLD

The landscape in and around Bluff was spectacular with varying cliff and rock formations, groves of cottonwood trees and great camaraderie among all of the artists -- special thanks to Maxwell Alexander Gallery for sponsoring such a wonderful and rewarding trip!

Pam Returns!

"Iron Maiden 2" (20x24) o/p

Over the summer I was fortunate to work again with Pam (whom I had done several paintings of years ago) and these are a couple of the results...

                                                                    "Mending 3" (12x12) o/p

Although she could not hold the poses for a live session, I was able to get good photographs in our dining room on a sunny day that provided some excellent lighting effects~

Thank you, Pam -- it was a pleasure to work with you!
