Los Angeles has snow capped mountains?!?!?!

leave a comment »

Believe it or not, I witnessed with my own eyes snow capped mountains surrounding LA.  Thanks to recent rain storms clearing the smog from the area for a few days, I was able to capture this shot from the plane ride in.

In other news, I’m hard at work on a long-overdue website redesign.  Stayed tuned while I try to iron out the final details.

Winter on the Chicago River

leave a comment »

On a recent stroll down Michigan Avenue, the view over the Chicago River caught my attention.  I stitched 20 images together to create this composite panorama.

Explorations online

leave a comment »

Since so many people have been asking to see an online version of “Explorations”, I posted a gallery of the pieces in the show, along with information about editions and pricing.  Please contact me with any questions or to place an order.  Click on the sample image below to see more.

Ruth Ezell, producer at KETC Channel 9, was kind enough to stop by the opening and review it on her blog.  Thanks Ruth!

And many thanks again to everyone else who has showed their support by attending the opening, through congratulatory emails, and by purchasing one of the limited edition prints.  Sales are surging and I’m thrilled with the results!

By the way, a few people have asked how they can keep track of my postings here.  The easiest option is to click on the “Subscribe by email” link on the right hand side of this page.  I promise to make it worth the effort!

Thank you so much to everyone who trudged through single-digit temperatures to attend my opening reception at the Bonsack Gallery last night.  It was amazing to see such a strong show of support for me and my artwork.

After a hair-raising drive through a monster winter storm (quite possibly my scariest trip down I-55) lead to a slightly last minute hanging, the show came together beautifully.  Many thanks to the Bonsack’s Donya Allison, Anne Martin, and Andrew Newman for helping to put it all together.

For those of you that couldn’t make it but are in the area, please stop by the gallery at some point over the next month to see the work.  And for everyone else, here’s a sneak peak of what you missed:

All images are available in a 12″ x 18″ limited edition of 20, and a 6″ x 9″ limited edition of 50.  Please contact me about pricing and framing options.  A gallery of the images in this show will be posted soon.

Starting 2010 with a bang

leave a comment »

Happy new year!  I hope everyone’s holidays were as restful and productive as mine were.  I’ve finished printing for my show, and I’m now starting the always-enjoyable process of matting and framing.  Everything looks great and I’m excited about how the collection is coming together.

If you or anyone you know will be in St. Louis this Friday, January 8th, stop by the Bonsack Gallery for my opening reception.  I hope to see you there!
