When it comes to digitally recording my artwork, I long ago started to rely on photographer Frank Kook for that service. I'm the first one to admit I am no good with a camera and my time is better spent in the studio. Frank not only takes great photos, but he comes to my studio with his equipment and laptop, and makes a CD of my work for me before he leaves. Great service and with a smile. THANK YOU FRANK! If anyone wishes to contact Frank, email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please join me on Saturday August 4th between 2pm and 5pm at SWOON Gallery for the Opening Reception of my exhibit "Gemini and Beyond." Swoon is a lovely and very unique gallery that offers fine art, antiques and fashion. PLUS there are three other exceptional exhibits opening on the same day! "Open Air", "Carvings" and "Get Better". Each of these exhibits will continue until September 1st, so if you can't make the Opening Reception, please stop by whenever you can. Enjoy!

Having grown up on the water and living beside it now, the beach is where I turn to relax, unwind, rejuvenate and get inspired. Something about sand between the toes, the smell of salt in the air and blue water as far as you can see. Like medicine for the soul ... or at least this artist's soul.
Enjoy your summer.

Exciting News!
