Some New Paintings...
Artist Reception in Mendon, NY
It's been a while since I posted here, but if you're in the Rochester, Rush, Mendon area of Western New York, stop by my opening reception at this beautiful restaurant. I'll have quite a few paintings up, both figurative/landscape and abstract expressionist works.
Hi folks. The BSA has their Winter Art Show up at the Richmond Memorial Library Gallery in Batavia, NY now though the first week of January. I have three newer paintings in the show. If you're in town, stop by and enjoy the artwork! Happy Holidays!
I'm having an exhibition of paintings at GOART! in Batavia, NY. Here's the info for the opening reception:
Just Finished a New Mural
I got a chance to work on a new exterior mural in Oakfield, NY, thanks to Susan Zeliff, who is in the process of refurbishing an old commercial building that has been vacant for many years into a Community Center! She got a grant through GOART! in Batavia to hire me and a couple of talented young women from Oakfield. The sisters, who just graduated from the art program at Genesee Community College, came up with the basic design and content for the mural, and we collaborated on painting it over the last couple of weeks.
It's the first time I've painted with other people, and it was a lot of fun!
Hopefully, we'll be doing more work on the other side of the building next year.
Please go to my Murals page for more photos!

New paintings for 2021
Well, it's finally a new year, and hopefully a better, more hopeful year for everyone!
I just wanted to post a couple new paintings so far...
'The Birdman Dialogues'
New Mural in Batavia, NY
At the end of June I finished a large mural on Center Street in Batavia. Please check my Murals page above for more details.
A New Painting and an Old One
Well, the Spring has been very interesting this year of the Great Pandemic. My family has been very fortunate through all of this, and I've been able to keep busy making art and getting to enjoy the outdoors. Right now I'm working on a mural on a brick building in Batavia, New York, which has just been expanded by the business owner to include the whole side of the building all the way to the top! We're getting a scissors lift today so I can continue the top portion. I'll have more on that later, and photos.
But for now, here is a painting of the Erie Canal path that I did last week. And also a painting from a couple of years ago that seems even more relevant today, considering the changes sweeping the world from the Black Lives Matter movement.
Wishing you well...

Door Painting at GO ART!
I had so much fun painting a mural upstairs at GO ART! last week that Gregory asked me to do one on the inside of the front door of the building (the former Batavia Club). It certainly spices things up.
Now I want to paint one at home!
GO ART! Mural
Over the last three days I got to paint a mural in an upstairs room (well, hallway actually) at GO ART! in Batavia, NY. The director, Gregory Hallock, said I could do anything I wanted, so this is what I made. I've been wanting to paint something in this style for a while. It was a blast!
