December 2019 Newsletter

I hope you are enjoying the holiday season. Will you be traveling or staying close to home?

Growing up in Alaska, during Christmas vacation I often traveled with my parents and grandmother to warmer climates. Some of my most colorful memories come from hiking and swimming in places like Hawaii, Australia, Palau, and Tanzania. These influences are often reflected in my art.

As 2019 comes to an end, I am very appreciative of your support. Thank you for a year filled with shows, sales, and new art.

When Approaching

Shows and Sales

One of my favorite shows of the year is the December Santa Barbara Art Association exhibit at the Faulkner Gallery (40 E. Anapamu St.). I have three paintings in the show: When Approaching (shown above), At Peace, and I See You. If you have a chance, I hope you will be able to explore the art there. It lasts until December 31.

Since the last newsletter, I have been honored to sell three pieces: Transcending (large acrylic, shown above) to a collector in Northern California; Dreamscape (featured in a previous newsletter); and Dare, from the Anchorage show at the International Gallery of Contemporary Art. Thank you to everyone who made these shows and sales possible.
Fire and Ice

New Art and Quote of the Month

Throughout the year in Alaska, I spent a lot of time looking at and exploring glaciers. The complex ice structures always fascinated me. This is reflected in a new artwork of mine: Crystalline (shown above).

After our glacier trips in the winter, we would come back to the cabin and warm up in front of the wood stove fire. Do you see that in Fire and Ice (shown above)?

The holiday season is a great time for memories, isn't it? Dr. Seuss got it right when he said: "Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory."

Thank you for supporting original contemporary abstract art and for reading my newsletter. I always appreciate hearing from you.

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, festive Winter Solstice, and here's to a great New Year.

Warm Regards,
