Expressions West 2015

I delivered two pieces for "Expressions West" at the Coos Art Museum this last weekend. The show opens Friday, April 24 and runs through June 27. If you can't make it, no worries. I can't either. Coos Bay, Oregon is fairly remote from the big cities of the west coast, somewhere between Portland and San Francisco. But the museum there is a beautiful space in a beautiful part of the world. I really appreciate being a part of this show in part because the juror was the talented Brian Hoover. I was blown away by the this painting a while back when it showed up in an issue of New American Paintings.  Go explore his website: www.brianhoover.com  You'll enjoy yourself.

When somebody whose work kind of knocks your socks off picks out your own work from among a crowd for some special attention it feels really really good. Thanks Mr. Hoover.
