Update May 2013

A few quick pieces of news. Somebody took one of my pieces to get appraised and it turns out that I’m selling at about 50% of the appraisal value right now. The piece was 24 x 36 and was appraised at at least $1500… I sold it for $700. The other piece of news is…

December 2012 update

I hadn’t written anything on the website lately, but that doesn’t mean I hadn’t been busy. In November, I took a trip to the moutains and coast of oaxaca and produced 11 plein air paintings. Engaging in this work was both tremendously fun and tremendously rewarding. I cannot recommend the experience enough. It teaches you…
