Why Open Studios: To show you what I’ve been working on over the last year, see which of my ideas and media generate response, talk about art making with viewers and makers of art. I like to curate my studio walls, surprise myself to see which works fit together; create a floor where works can be taken out and moved about, accessible. As much as showing my art to the public, it is hearing from you that adds purpose. This year it’s small works, oil sketches on canvas and panel, all for sale and all made with much larger works in plan. Glaciers fill my imagination in every regard, but it is their home at water level that causes me to paint.

Unrelated to glaciers, a curious assortment of digital artworks and reproduction prints of certain paintings are in the mix, along with shelves of figure paintings & drawings, abstract works, works on paper, larger landscapes from recent years.

Please join me this Saturday and Sunday, June 4 & 5, 2011, from 11am to 6pm.
3298 Lakeshore Ave, upstairs, Oakland CA 94610.
