Sundays in the studio


Happy end of the weekend! (I know, it’s not really as happy as Friday or Saturday) As the workweek approaches, I invite you to enjoy the apropos scene featured in this painting I finished five minutes ago, titled “The Gray Race”, 24″ x 36″.

This is an image I experienced while leaving Chicago at dawn. Commuters walked, biked and drove their way to offices on a Monday morning.

Fun facts about this painting- 1. I did not use any black or pre-mixed grays while creating it 2. The title is shared with an album from one of my favorite bands. Do you know who? 🙂 Thanks for reading.


The painting that shall not be named


Unnamed painting, 24″ x 30″ oil on canvas

Or apparently photographed properly. I love it when WordPress changes their dashboard and makes me publish posts mid-draft. ANY WAY, I finished this piece yesterday. Still haven’t named it yet, don’t know why the past couple haven’t popped out their titles at me like they usually do.

Later today, I’m headed to the Preview Gala at KVIE for this year’s annual art auction. A piece I donated, Tenants, will be available for auction and on the air Saturday, September 28th at about 3:30 pm.

Going forward, expect relative silence from me in the fall, but rest assured- I have a plan. A plan to make higher volumes of affordable original cityscapes with renewed focus in a set of series that I’m super stoked about. More to come…
