Working Waterfront commission for Verrill Dana law firm

The Verrill Dana law firm based here in Portland commissioned me to create two 36 x 48 inch paintings for their beautiful, newly renovated offices.  They were delivered this month and are hanging in the main 9th floor conference room in their offices at 1 Portland Square.

The paintings are loosely based on the Portland waterfront, with a couple of recognizable landmarks such as the Eimskip crane which dominates the western waterfront, and the Ocean Gateway Terminal building to the east.

It was great to work in a larger scale and I look forward to doing more!

New gallery in Palm Springs,CA

I’m excited to be showing at this new gallery in California.  Gallery owner Michael Barba purchased one of my monoprints at the Meca art sale last spring and got in touch afterwards about showing my work.  He stopped by my studio this fall and selected these 2 for the opening exhibit, “The Depth of Perception”.  Fun to have my work traveling all the way to Australia!
