Newsflash #1 – Rhode Island Monthly's annual "best of" issue hits the streets this week, & the food paintings are included as a 2008 Editors' Pick. i'm blown away – and speechless. the link to the complete writeup is here.

Newsflash #2 – for the first time in….ohh…3 years, maybe? there are some new bull paintings available – just in the nick of time for the flora & fauna opening at the charlestown gallery this weekend.

it's meant some late late nights (driving by the 560 mill at 2am-ish and wondering about the heavenly chorale coming from somewhere above? it was Górecki's Symphony No. 3.) really feel like the food works paved the way, & am looking forward to seeing what happens next with em. here's a sneek peek:


strange & thunderhead, ea 30×40in, acrylic on canvas

the gallery currently has 5 bull paintings & a selection of charcoals in addition to the food works.
