This latest work is mixed media on birch panel and measure 24" X 24" The work is heavily textured and has a rich layered background. A very tropical feel that is both earthy and elegant with touches of gold to give a little luminesence.

This piece is a "found object" assemblage. I did this piece for the recent Masterpiece in a Day event at Gallery on First in Sanford, Florida.
The materials were all gathered from a recent day of beach combing at the Canaveral National Sea Shore.

"Gertie" is my latest photo collage. This piece is archivally matted and framed and measures 11" X 14".
"Gertie" continues a long, ongoing series of photo collage that I first began around 1988. I produced several dozen of these using "found" tin type photographs between 1988 and 1994. I then revisited this series a couple of other times briefly in the late 90's and then again in 2010 for our show at Edgewood Gallery in Syracuse, NY.
I enjoy doing them and every now and then I come across more tin types and sometime shortly thereafter produce new pieces.
Work from this series has been included in several gallery shows in New York as well as a number of group exhibitions in museums and other venues. The series has won awards and been critically reviewed. Some good, some not as much, but overall mostly positive. To date most have sold, although I do have a few that have hung around.
"Gertie" will be one of several new pieces that I will have on display at Gallery On First for the Sanford Art Walk this Friday, 6-9pm.

After a long time I finally have some new encaustic work coming along. This is the first I consider finished and have framed up. The piece measures 16 " X 16" framed. "Riddle in Yellow & Black" is matted with a black core, black mat and a contemporary simple black wooden frame. The painting is available for purchase at Gallery on First in Sanford, Florida or on-line at Saatchi Gallery or contact me directly from the contact us form on our home page.

Deb snapped this shot of me just before the show opened. This was a good introduction to the museum and to some of the local artists. Met some great people. Hopefully I will have more opportunities to show at this wonderful venue.
