Crossed Flowers, Crossed Fingers...(A BIG Announcement!)

"Crossed Daffodils"
11 x 14 inches, oil on canvas

Ok, ok, I won't keep you in (too much) suspense, but I will just show you the sketch for this piece first:

Now, on to my announcement! A brand new art gallery opened its doors in downtown Eugene today, and I am one of their artists! This is actually huge for me, as I've never been represented - let alone exclusively represented - by a gallery before. The Gallery at the Watershed is located in a lovely, walkable, parkable spot near fantastic restaurants, the Willamette river, and parkland - and the building itself is a modern-architectural work of art.

If you live nearby, please stop by the next time you find yourself downtown. Hours are Tuesday-Saturday 11-5. They are going to have the best of my work, old and new - and their stable of artists include my friends Randall David Tipton and Lillian Almeida. Follow the gallery's Facebook page for lots of events coming up this summer - including painting demonstrations by yours truly, art history lectures, and plein air workshops by some seriously awesome folks.

I'm really, really excited about this. The gallery already feels like a big happy family, and I think everyone that visits will feel that energy too. There's going to be a huge party for the grand opening on Saturday June 1st, and I expect hope you all will be there.
