My wonderful friend Jenny offered to model for me. She is a smart, funny, unique and insightful art lover. I loved doing this portrait of her.

I’ve changed my mind. I will be showing a new painting at Hess. This is a painting of my son’s new piano teacher. She is absolutely stunning, a cancer survivor and so very talented. I felt she embodied the theme of the show, “Empower”. So, here’s the new detail, sneak peak. “Deidre” is 16″x20″ Acrylic on linen (this was my first painting on linen. It was really nice to work on, but very difficult to photograph.) I can’t show you the whole thing until after the opening night. Come to the show!


I’m so excited and honored to be in a group show at hosted by Hanalei Artworks, at Hess Brewing in San Diego, CA.

The Artist Reception is

Wed, March 7th 6-10P at Mike Hess.

On view thru April 1st.

I’m unable to disclose the entire painting I’ll be showing so here’s a teaser for you to enjoy. I hope to see you at the show! It’s going to be a great collection of artwork.

15% of the proceeds from the opening night will be donated to San Diego Rescue Mission

Painting Plein Air in Coronado, CA

I went on location to Coronado and set up for a study of the dinghy landing.  It was a more active area than I anticipated and was lucky enough to have finished the painting right as the owner came to take his dinghy away.  I am happy to report, he approved of this painting.  Coronado Plein Air
