I can’t believe it’s been almost 2 months since my last update – I’ve been really busy, but a lot of good things are happening. This past weekend was our abstract show opening of “Elements” at the gallery where my new painting “Prismatic Gathering” was the featured piece – my take on the famous Frederick Clustered Spires. The limited edition print was also released on my website since the original has been sold.
Along with being swamped at work, I’ve been working on a lot of new paintings – some abstract, some more realistic. I just brought this new original into the gallery over the weekend and it’s gotten a good response so far – “South Mountain.”
Original acrylic on canvas, $1200
On another note, the original mixed media drawing “Chaotic Thought” is now available for sale at the gallery.
Hope everyone enjoys the weekend – it’s supposed to be beautiful! Maybe I’ll get that chance to grab some photos to inspire more new paintings.

Going for another quick getaway this weekend with the family, so just a quick update – things at the gallery are moving along well so I want to get things in order before leaving.
Just released a new print today – “Harmonious Flight.” It’s a limited edition of 25 fine art giclee, signed and numbered. The print is available both online in my print shop and at the gallery.

I was hoping to get a blog update in last week about the family trip to Assateague Island…but after being away from the gallery for over a week there was too much to catch up on! Now that there are a few minutes to spare, I get a chance to write.
This photo was taken by my daughter while we were having dinner at Macky’s restaurant in Ocean City. Deeeelicious!
Spent a lot of time at the beach – we picked the hottest week of the summer to go, but the temperature wasn’t too bad down by the water. The horses were really prominent, more-so than we were even expecting. They were even brave enough to try and join us for lunch!
We really enjoyed spending most of our time outdoors, especially the horses playing in the water.
Set up the camper at The Island Resort (our home away from home!) It got so hot one day that we spent the whole time inside playing cards and board games. Thank goodness it had air conditioning!
I have to admit – I did miss painting, though saw so many beautiful things that I’m inspired to do a lot of new pieces. We had a blast cooking over the fire, some of the best food I’ve had in years! But…did take some time to slip into some good restaurants and kick back with some great crab legs.
All in all, it was a great week of relaxing with the family. Can’t wait to go again next weekend!

I am on vacation next week, but wanted to update quickly before I leave (and will give you a run-down of the trip when I get back!)
*I have opened up an online print shop on my site where you can easily purchase limited edition prints of my work from home. Check it out here.
*This week we were also able to launch 2 new limited edition giclee prints (also available in the online shop).
Really looking forward to having a week away with the family and will update about it when I get back. Have a great weekend!

For those of you curious as to how this landscape painting idea was turning out, I am happy to report that it is finished and so far it’s gotten a great response! Behold, a sneak peek into my studio – the beginning to end stages of my newest piece “Fountain Rock.”
It will be for sale at the gallery next week for $795 and a print edition will also be released soon. I’ll keep you posted!

In 1988 I spent my first summer in Frederick. Most of my days were spent sweating away in a job I absolutely loathed- dropping 50lb air compressor parts into acid and rinsing them off…all day, every day. The plant was located off of Fountain Rock road tucked along the landscape of the Catoctin Mountains. Despite my hatred for the job, the area around the plant was beautiful. And, ironically enough, my wife and I ended up buying our house out there and I drive that road everyday. And everyday I want to paint that view. So, I’ve decided to do just that! The stretcher bars are already cut, the canvas is ready to be stretched and soon enough this summer project will be on it’s way.
Speaking of summer, another activity my family and I will be partaking in is camping! We did our first big trip this past weekend up in Gettysburg (despite the fact I was recovering from some nasty bug going around.) I was hoping to get some good photos to do some other paintings from, but as you can see…the area was completely packed with other people with the same idea that we had! So no room for inspiring imagery. Oh well, maybe next time!
