Celebrating Life 2022 excepted Moon Rise. The show will be at Charleston Heights Arts Center on Bush street Las Vegas NV going from May 27 to Wednesday June 23. Moon Rise was done last October using a watercolor palette of purple. I made the frame in my shop and cut a black double matt.
Landscape 5/22 is from several photo from trips to Canyon lands UT. My next trip to southern UT will be the first of June. With a base camp near Natural Bridges UT.
I will be painting what my muse wants and not for the next show. I like the lines in this landscape.
It’s been awhile since I’ve posted. I’m in good health I took a break because my creative muse stopped. My muse was letting me know I was not fine. I removed Facebook and Twitter from my phone and pulled my work from from Las Vegas Artist Guild and City of World gallery’s. I covered the a large painting in my studio. Stopping “social media” I was no longer being pushed to be mad at something out of my control. Pulling my paintings let the pressure off my muse. It took months of to get back to where I was able to uncover my painting from March and put it away for later and put a new paper on a board.
So here is things moving forward. I will be feeding my muse with trips to beautiful places every month. I no longer look at social media. I will be posting my paintings on Facebook, Tumbler, and Instagram because it’s where people are.

Here how to get a hold of me
The last trip to Moab UT took 7 days with four camp sites in southern UT. Escalante, to Capital Reef, to Dead Horse, to Arches. Next trip is back to southern UT base camp near Natural Bridge nation park it will be at the first of 6/22 for several days.
The last place to show my work. It’s been awhile since I’ve posted. Its been about two months of not painting. So I’ve pulled all my work from everywhere. Last year was a rough year. I’m going to see what comes next.

I’ve been excepted into Gallery to Go art vending machines run by Nicole Cochener. I’ve made 15 original 5” x 7” watercolor with blank cards and envelopes. I will be dropping off the cards this week at her gallery Squishy Studio at the Arts Factory.
The themes for the watercolor paintings are Fall in the Canyon, Red Sail, Purple reflection, Grass is always greener and Cold winter’s night. I don’t like painting on cards so each watercolor painting is painted on good quality paper. There’s four paintings per paper, the paper is cut to 5” x 7” and mounted on a blank card.
