New Piece

Early On - Reclaimed Lumber and Acrylic - 2011

As a young boy I spent many hours with my father in the various grocery stores he managed in our hometown. Although I was unaware of it at the time, my understanding of how to respect and relate to people of all sorts was being modeled to me by my father. Those times in the store watching, learning, absorbing...all the while laying a foundation one block at a time. I loved those days and I miss them...

Recently my good friend Tonya shot some photos of a piece of mine for a show entry. She also likes to take photos during the prep for a shoot and this is one such photo. We have a mutual appreciation of images that seem to capture the moment.

So now the entry has been sent in and I just have to wait for the jurors decision. Yesterday my buddy Mike and my brother Jeff delivered four pieces for a new group show opening on Wednesday night in Macomb, Illinois at the West Central Illinois Arts Center. The reception, which is in conjunction with W.I.U.'s Environmental Summit, is from 6-8pm with live music and refreshments.

This show will feature one new piece and three created in the last six months.
