New Chapter/New Gallery



It is with mixed feelings that I will be leaving the Stutz studio/gallery after six years of painting and working with the Stutz Artists Association. It was a pleasure to work with the staff and the many artists I came in contact with. My next passage and chapter in my life will be the opening of a gallery/studio in the Carmel Arts District. I will be featuring my work as well as other artists that I have long admired. The 1,650 sq ft will give me adequate studio space as well as area to teach classes and workshops. I will miss that great morning light I enjoyed in my Stutz studio for sure. The gallery will be called "Eye On Art" and will open in September. The grand opening is planned for October or November and I hope to see many of you there.

Tennessee Valley



Oil
12"x16"

Did this painting over the weekend while visiting family in Franklin, just South of Nashville. The landscape there is so great with the rolling hills. I was able to find this area where the land had been cleared to show a nice small lake and valley. The hills in the background blue down with miles of atmosphere between the canvas and the heavily wooded forrest.
