new painting

Originally uploaded by Scenic Artisan.
this is one of the new pieces/finishes i learned during my recent class in Louisville.

been mostly out of town

i'm still here.

this has already been a busy year, though its looking like it may be slow for the next couple of weeks.

I had a solo show up in January and February.I have a piece up in a show right now! . I exhibited at Flux and set up shop at the DC counter culture Festival. I took a "research trip" to new york to visit the Etsy Labs ( which i 'd like to open in DC), and to see the galleries in Chelsea. I just got back from a very intensive week long painting class in Louisville, KY.

I'll be posting some of my work as some as i go take some good pictures of it.

i'm also trying to organize my first event for the washington sculptors group.
