I will have my art displayed, through January, at Vita Cafe (3023 NE Alberta St, PDX). Come for the art, stay for the vegan nachos.

Art Opening at Vendetta

Tuesday, September 16, I will host an opening for some new paintings I am displaying at Vendetta (4306 N. Williams Ave, PDX). By hosting I mean sipping on drinks, laughing with friends, and responding to any questions about my artwork with a blank stare to make you feel uncomfortable. If you want to partake in any of these come on by on Tuesday. Event will be from 7pm to 10pm.  Artwork will be up through October. Come check it out!

endgameFinished this painting a couple of months ago and finally got around to taking a pic of it.  “End Game,” acrylic and oil on 24″ x 36″ canvas. Took way too long to create. Might be the last one I make like this for awhile.


This is the first piece of a new series I am working on.
