Update #2

We did it!


Hi friends! We did it, we met the goal! People can still pledge, but we made the goal!

Thank you all for your support!

For those of who that I need to send drawings and paintings to, please email me your name and mailing address to

The drawings I can probably start mailing out this week after I catalog them for my portfolio. They are very nice and I am sad to see them go, but many of them will become larger paintings in the near future.

Those who are recieving paintings, please give me a couple of weeks, as I am preparing for two shows at the moment. A solo show in late september with Yes Gallery ( in brooklyn, and this show in Berlin.

Again all postage and shipping is included with the work :)

One final request: I have found that after travel I return to the studio recharged and creatively energized. If any of you know of anyone or anyplace where I could stay for short periods in the future, wooded areas, or cities, in exchange for artwork and my eternal gratitude, I would be very grateful!! Short periods would be long weekends or a week or two at most. It is very exciting to bring my easel, camera, and sketchbook to new areas and explore creative possibilities! I immediately recall the first time I set my eyes upon the quaking aspen forests in Utah, or the dense twisting pine of Cape Cod.

Thank you so much again,

All my best,


p.s. Am working on my website presently, please stay tuned for the grand update!

Update #1

Hey guys! I am simply overwhelmed by all the support! It is very humbling. It means so much to me, and to think after so many long lonely hours in that studio, with no shows and little hope, I was able to emerge with the help of all of you! I am getting your paintings together as we speak! Thank you thank you thank you!!! Lets keep the positive energy going! Thank you soooooo muuuuucccchhhhhh!!!!
