"Animalia" at Abend Gallery, opening Fri. Jan. 29th at 5:30

"I'm the King of the Castle" oil, 19.5" tondo

This painting and a couple of others of mine are in a show titled "Animalia" which opens tonight at Abend Gallery in Denver. I'm excited about this show because it features subjects dear (deer?) to my heart   - animals, frequently shown in their relationship to humans and our shared habitat.

It's an imaginative show, at times thoughtful, passionate, whimsical and sorrowful.

You can read a review of the show and see some of the work in it on the Hi-Fructose Magazine site here.

Interview with Artwork Archive - Art Advice

Artwork Archive is an excellent web based system that helps artists organize artwork. A while back the nice people at AA asked if I had any advice for artists near the beginning of their career.

The art world today is very different than it was when I was a kid. Most of my comments consist of general life advice.
