Another new work to be featured at Acceleration Art and Photography Gallery’s September exhibit, Trees.  Stop in at this unique gallery in historic Fountain Square for the opening on Friday, September 7.  I look forward to meeting you!

Arberi Autunnali

I just finished this yesterday and although it’s already sold, it will be featured at Trees, an exhibit at Acceleration Art and Photography Gallery in Historic Fountain Square starting Friday, September 7.  If you’re in Indianapolis, please come check out this exhibit featuring my work and that of Matthew Sheek and Sarah Rae Cote.  Hope to see you there!

Belle Bayou

I just finished this painting, inspired by another of John Snell’s stunning photographs.  It will be featured at Hotel Tango on Virginia Ave., near Fountain Square in Indianapolis as part of my solo exhibit.  Come check it out on First Friday, September 7, 2018.


Done and signed, and off to Acceleration Art and Photography Gallery in historic Fountain Square.  If I can’t be standing on the beach, I can paint it and look at it while hoping it speaks to someone else.


I grew up in New Orleans and my grandparents lived just a block from Lake Pontchartrain.  This reminds me of childhood days, looking at the sailboats from the sun parlor upstairs.  Sold!

We Didn’t Start The Fire

After a few months of being tired, ill and unmotivated, I’ve been working on some big paintings lately and this one was inspired by a smaller one I did a couple of years ago that’s still one of my personal favorites.  I really like the 36 x 36 size and it’s hanging over my sofa in my newly painted den/kitchen/great room until it goes to my upcoming exhibit.  What do you think?

Oak Trees on the Shore

This is from a photograph by an old friend and accomplished photographer, Colleen Kerrigan.  These are live oaks along the shore of the Gulf of Mexico in Pass Christian, Mississippi.  Live oaks are evergreen and don’t lose their leaves so they look like this always!  They can live for hundreds of years and the old ones are huge and majestic.  If you’re in Indianapolis, stop by Mass Ave Wine Shop downtown, where I have quite a few of my paintings on display currently.  This one will be there as soon as I finish it!

Crooked Cypress

I’ve mentioned before how much I love Frank Relle’s photographs.  This one took my breath away, and I’m working on my painting of it now.  Here’s the finished product, ready to sign!  I’m really excited about this one, and thank you again, Mr. Relle, photographer extraordinaire, for your generosity of spirit!
