BIRD GENOSCAPE PROJECT posted: 05. 29. 17 I was commissioned by UCLA's Bird Genoscape Project to design a logo and produce a series of illustrations featuring migratory birds. The Bird Genoscape Project studies migratory patterns of birds using genomics. It was an exciting opportunity and a privelege for me to be involved with this important and groundbreaking reseach effort. See the illustration series here.
NEW COMMISSION INSTALLED posted: 06. 25. 17 Here's a photo of a newly finished large commissioned painting I did for a couple in my neighborhood. The piece is called "Study for American Landscape" and is the successor of an earlier work called "Study for a North Carolina Landscape".

ANOTHER LOST PAINTING RESURFACES posted: 05. 29. 17 A 2004 painting of mine titled "Pipe" disappeared under mysterious circumstances over ten years ago, after having hung in a restaurant in Cornelius, North Carolina. I made quite a few calls trying to recover it, and other paintings, before giving it up for lost. Recently, however, it turned up in a local Goodwill store and was purchased by noted memorabilia collector Wade Jones, who posted it on eBay, where I happened to find it through an unlikely stroke of luck (I was googling myself).
Wade was kind enough to return the piece to me after I messaged him to explain the picture's origins.
Above: the eBay listing.

LOST PAINTING RECOVERED updated: 02. 09. 17 I ran into a couple at Birdsong Brewing tonight who had happened upon one of my old paintings in the attic of their house. After doing some research, they identified the artist, but years went by before they met me and told me how the painting had mysteriously turned up. Naturally I was fascinated and happy to hear that they like the piece much more (apparently) than the previous owner and consider it a fortuituous addition to their art collection.
Update: I've created a new version of the painting which will be part of Gallery Twenty-Two's February show:
