Feline Family Portrait

This is the most ambitious pet portrait I’ve done to date: five distinct cats, from completely separate reference photos, combined to appear to be sitting together.

Fortune Teller

I used to make these paper fortune tellers all the time in junior high.

Silent Stars and Nighttime

These themes emerged while I was creating new giftable art for the annual HARK! holiday show and sale at Kaleid Gallery.

Haberdasher Early Evening

While figuring out what to paint for this year for the Works/SJ benefit, I realized I’ve done a few paintings that have aligned into a new series of their own.

Veggielution container mural

This is the largest painting I’ve done yet! It’s a shipping container owned by Veggielution (8′ x 8′ x 20′).

Cocktail Watercolors

These watercolors are a present commissioned by Mariana for her friend’s upcoming wedding – illustrations of custom cocktails at her reception.

“Flight Delay” show at Kaleid Gallery

The late afternoon sun and shifting weather created this extraordinary light show with the glassware that splayed, rippled, and caught an occasional tiny rainbow.

“Flight Delay” show opening soon

Details and a preview of my third solo show at Kaleid Gallery this October.

Local Color: Gallery 408

I contributed a low mural here in the theme of reclaiming and reusing space, latching onto the idea of the physical markers that signal that.

Dreaming of Outside

This was my take on the classic “white cube” primitive for art.

Ever-Changing Tree Cards

I got the idea of making linoleum prints of a base object that I could vary in simple ways with markers.

Pet portraits: Dog edition

More pet portraits – here’s a bunch of dogs I’ve painted so far this year.

October show preview

Paintings in progress – save the date for October 2019 for my next show at Kaleid Gallery in downtown San José.

ArtBox: The Illuminated Iris

The ArtBox Project is an effort to bring more art into neighborhoods by sprucing up overlooked-but-ubiquitous utility boxes.

Pet portraits: Cat edition

I put out a call for pet portraits early in the year and have done quite a few since then. Most of them I held off on posting because they were gifts and I didn’t want to spoil the surprise. This batch is cats!

Digital painting thoughts

A timelapse of my painting technique, plus thoughts & rants about digital art tools.

100 Block mural in downtown San José

Organized by The Exhibition District, this is a mural created by 100 different artists each painting a 3′ x 3′ square.

Pale

This was a quick piece done for an exhibit at Works/San José show, Unity In Diversity. This theme relates to a graphic design project by San Jose State BFA student Javier Yep in 2017 that included a “unity in diversity” flag.

A trio of chicken portraits

I enjoy painting portraits of pets, and my latest commission was especially fun: pet chickens!

Shimmer

Continuing my tradition of creating new works to donate to the annual Works/San José benefit auction, here’s one that echoes some of the artful cropping of the Statement paintings but with a new subject matter.
