So far 2015 has been a great start, having just been awarded "BEST IN SHOW" for the TAA Portfolio Gallery Exhibition for my plein air series in Pittsburgh. In addition, having paintings in the Randy Higbee 6" Squared Show, the Rawls Museum and the Nansemond Suffolk Academy Art Exhibition. February, I'll have the "Bank Noir" painting in THE SHOW in Norfolk. Last week, I had the opportunity to paint with a group of friends at Mike Brewers studio for a day long painting session of our model, "Bryne". She was a great model and the time allowed me to paint at a larger scale than I normally do, 18"x24" is big for me. This month of painting produced what I consider a personal best in awhile, although I wish I had the time to make a time lapse video of it. "Cavite Afternoon" was my favorite so far this year. So here's to a more productive year in 2015!
