Hopping Towards Spring...

Things have been hopping around here.

At the end of January my family was able to visit the gallery in Milwaukee. About 20 of us had a private showing on a Saturday when the gallery is normally closed. It was good to be able to have my family see the installation.

February 9th I took down, packed up and drove the works back to Indiana. All the boxes and wrapped paintings are now clogging up my studio space.

I was invited to show with a group at Goshen College. The exhibit was entitled “The Dream”. I have also been invited to show at a small gallery in New Carlisle, Indiana – RJ Clark Studio/Gallery. That show runs through March 29th.

I’ve started some new black and white wood block prints. These images relate to some of the new paintings and others are companions to the same themes of family and parenthood.

I have been selected and commissioned to create an image to be used by the National Center for Farmworker Health. The painting will be reproduced as a giclee and offset posters which will be sold to raise money for scholarships.
