|Any growth in my art has always been linked to personal growth.|
It's a hard thing to speak of without sounding trite.
None of us goes through life unscathed and it's that way by design.
Evolution stems from new growth, and new growth from friction, wearing away what does not serve us. Every time I pass though a great period of challenge comes change, and with it small glimpses into the bigness of existence.
I feel expansive for a short while and in tune to the universal in the particular: its a magic fleeting glimpse into the grand connection.
Looking into infinite space was just what I needed.

Funding the Project
|Moody Day on the Mowhawk 24" x 30" $24,000|
|John Cosby and I are into our fourth year traveling and painting for the project.|
Thus far our expenses have been all out of pocket.
It has been a challenge to hold on to the collection of work and keep it under wraps.
To help fund this endeavor I have decided to sell one work from the collection at a premium with the proviso that the owner is willing to travel it with the rest of the collection when the project is complete.
Whoever chooses to purchase this is buying a unique piece of American history and a part of a much larger American document.
New York 5-Day Plein Air Workshop

I am thrilled to be teaching this workshop. The Stone Barns Center is a great location less than an hour from Manhattan offering plenty of variety and an opportunity to study fall color with the prismatic palette.
Day 1 Will begin with an in-depth lecture on the prismatic palette and be followed by an afternoon Demonstration.
Days 2-5 Students will be working in the field - plan on working on 2 paintings per day. It is my practice to get around for frequent critiques so you will get plenty of help.
All Levels Welcome (Humility Required)
