uprise_may2015

I am excited to let you know that I have four brand new original abstract paintings for sale through Uprise Art, my gallery in New York City. They can be purchased online via their website, and free framing (by me!) is available for any painting once you purchase. Shipping is also included.

You can see the entire selection of my work here on their site (note: all paintings in the selection except the four above are already sold). Note also that sizes vary, but all pieces are made with acrylic paints on hard “cradled” panels which are easy to hang and look striking in any room.

Thanks for looking and have a great weekend, friends!

For the Love of the Swim

11/18/14

swim8_300

Every now and again images of what I’m working on pop up on my Instagram feed. And you may have noticed a few swimming related images popping up, including the one above. And that’s because I’ve started working on a new book, as yet unnamed, about…you guessed it: SWIMMING! I have been passionate about swimming since I was a kid and it’s always been a huge part of my life, and so I am very excited to be working on this book. The book will cover swimming history, fashion, culture, innovations, lore & so much more. It will also include profiles of swimmers, some famous, some not. The book will include mostly my artwork & hand lettering, with some photos and a couple of essays .

I am still looking for a bit more content for the book: Do you have a collection of old swimming medals or ribbons I could photograph (and return to you)? Do you have a collection of any swimming gear that is vintage (1980’s or previous)? Do you have vintage photos of swimmers I could use? Do you have an exceptional swimming story or history or know someone (dead or alive) who does? I am also looking for a few African American or Latino swimmers of all ages or genders as subjects to profile in the book (I already have many White and Asian swimmers). My subjects just need to love swimming and do it regularly (and do not need to be fast competitive swimmers).

Look out for the book to be released in early Spring 2016 by Chronicle Books.

Have a happy Tuesday, friends! Stay tuned tomorrow for information on a big sale in my Etsy Shop!

New Creativebug Class :: Geometric Painting

09/11/14

eight pointed star 843x504

Today my next class at Creativebug launches! In this new class I teach you how to paint an eight-pointed star.

Play with shape and color as you learn how to make one of my iconic star paintings. In this class, I’ll show you how to draft an eight-pointed star with a template, and then you’ll tape off sections and paint clean, crisp shapes. I’ll also demonstrate how to mix acrylic colors to create different shades for a striking final piece.

If you have a Creativebug subscription, you are all set — go ahead and watch the course! If not, you can either buy a class ala carte or sign up for a monthly subscription (a bargain at 9.99 a month!).

Learn more about the course (including the materials you need) and buy the course here.

Friends, I’m included in a really interesting — and what should be a really visually beautiful — show in San Francisco that opens this weekend at Arc Gallery (located at 1246 Folsom St, SF). The show, Four Squared, in its fifth season, is a unique exploration of the works of sixteen Bay Area artists. Each of the artists has produced sixteen small works, presented in sixteen clusters giving the audience the experience of sixteen micro solo exhibitions. All works are priced under $500. Each work can be purchased individually or as a collection.

My sixteen paintings are the smallest in the show at 4×4 inches each! You can see my 16 paintings arranged in their proper grid, above.

Four Squared opens this Saturday, August 23rd, from 7-10PM. The reception is open to the public and I encourage you to come and take a look, especially if you are interested in purchasing any of my small works (which are priced at $150 each). I’ll be at the reception from about 6:30-8 pm if you’d like to come say hello! The show closes on September 23rd and you can view it during open gallery

Featured artists include John Arbuckle, Lisa Congdon, Monica & Robin Denevan, Rebecca Fox, Paul Gibson, Joseph Kowalczyk, Lisa Levine & Peter Tonnigsen, Saundra McPherson, Howard Munson, Miwako Nishizawa, Sawyer Rose, Tim Svenonius, Kirsten Tradowsky, Truong Tran, Heather Wilcoxon, and Jan Wurm.

The show was curated by Arc Gallery partners, Michael Yochum & Matthew Frederick. Michael Yochum is the author of SF Art News, which maintains an exhaustive list of art events and openings in San Francisco. Matthew Frederick is founder of Art Farm, an artist collective in the Mission, where he maintains his studio.
