Ohio Art League Fall Juried Exhibit

I entered this juried show for the first time in 10 years and got 2 drawings accepted. We had an opening reception at the Columbus Cultural Arts Center last night. It was a great turn out and great fun. I saw many faces I had not seen for years. One of my pieces Vanitas 18 won the 2nd place. Here is a snap shot (courtesy of Fatima Taylor) of me and George Leach.


Vanitas 21 work in progress

This is what I have on my easel right now. "Vanitas 21", pastel on black illustration board. I started working on this last week and it is now almost finished. Just a few things here and there that I still need to tweak. I can work fast in pastel and especially when the image has so much blank negative space like this one. My show is fast approaching, I hope I can finish at least one more piece for this Vanitas series before the show.



International Drawing Annual 13 published by Manifest Creative Research Gallery and Drawing Center just came out and I received my copies in the mail. 2 of my drawings are featured and I was awarded 1st place. I am extremely honored and humbled. This is the 3rd time my work was included in this INDA publication since 2017 and the next year 2020's edition will also include my work. I am happy that I have been blessed and well-received by this very prestigious and highly respected organization Manifest.


Ohio Art League 2019 Fall Juried Show

I got 2 pieces (Vanitas 17 and Vanitas 18) accepted into Ohio Art League's 2019 Fall Juried Show. This year I have shown my works in more shows than any past years. So far total 16 shows and still counting. It is not cheap to get into so many shows, but I am hoping it is all worth it. Will see...

Here is another poster of the show. I see quite a few familiar pieces. Looking forward to the opening!


Vanitas 19

I just finished a new drawing Vanitas 19 today. This was a little tricky to do because this paper had so much roughness to the surface texture which I did not realize until a half way into the drawing. Somehow I managed to keep it under control though. This was a small drawing and took me just a week to complete. Nice change of pace before I move onto my next large piece...
