Lotus and Orchid

If you happen to find yourself in Keene, NH after July 10th, then you should swing on into the Lotus and Orchid Art gallery. The title of the exhibit is "Grey Matter" (Art for the Brain).
Along with myself, there are three talented artist displaying art, (Dave Fitzsimmons, Karena Ness, Amy Hovasapian) and we will be accompanied by the live music of "The Trouble with Harry".

There will be an artist meet and greet from 5pm-8pm on Friday 7/10. It would be great to see you there!

New Art

Here is some new art your viewing pleasure. The title is, "Moose I". This drawing was created using pencil and white charcoal on recycled cardboard.

I have been working on a web site on and off for the past month. My client has been busy with work (which is a good thing) and has had trouble sending me information.
I am also trying to finish some of the 10 paintings I have going right now. I would like to have two of them finished before I hang about (5-7) paintings in Keene, NH at the "Lotus and Orchid". That is the trouble with oil paints, you have to learn to be very patient.

That's all I have for now. I'm beat!

Eco Art

Here is one of the several drawings that I have been working on as of late. These new drawings that I have been working on are drawn on recycled cardboard. I started using cereal boxes, cracker boxes and will be moving on to corrugated cardboard.
With this drawing I used oil pastels which isn't environmental friendly. However, I am planning on using another medium in the future. 
I also have some more drawings on cardboard that I plan on uploading soon!

I hope you enjoy the art and that when you look at this you can't help but smile.

This post is loooong over due for one of my favorite bands TEA LEAF GREEN.

The San Francisco based group formed in '97, have been touring since 2002. When I first had the chance to see these guys play in Allston, MA my buddy and I took a chance on a band we knew nothing about. Fortunately for us, the band we saw was amazing and we were "dancing" for days.

From the moment Tea Leaf Green took the stage they rocked the small Allston, MA venue (Harper's Ferry). The mind bending, ever lasting guitar solos by Josh Clark, incorporated with Trevor's elegant vocals and sometimes soft and intrinisic sound from the keys makes the show.

To round of the quartet there is Scott holding it down on the drums and at the time (Ben Chambers) who absoulety rocked the house with his funky bass solo's has departed with the band and the new bass player Reed Mathis of Jacob Fred's Jazz Odyssey is a phoenominal subsitute as he remains composed on the stage.

About 3 weeks ago my brother and I went to see this band in question down in Boston at the Paradise Rock Club and Lounge. If you haven't had the chance to see a show at the club I highly recommend it. A small venue with two levels and a chest high stage. There is enough room to get down and boogie while the band is playing right on top of you.

If you have the chance to see TLG play, do yourself a favor and spend the $18 or $20 on a ticket and experience a life Tea Leaf Green show. For music lovers out there, you know that there is nothing like seeing live music.

Music is a part of my life and is consistantly showing up in my art. Check out my web site for more examples of my art.

Peace and Live Music!
