Open Studio 2018

Just before Thanksgiving I had my 3rd annual Open Studio in my little apartment. Steady trickle of people from the vaious tenticles of my life. Met some new neighbors and sold a fair amount of prints and small framed pieces. Fun way to start the holiday season.

The Sun Was Shining on Balboa Street


A fun afternoon meeting lots of folks from the Outer Richmond, plus seeing friends who’d stopped by just ’cause they knew I’d be there. Great help and company from Linda McGilvray – on the left in the photo – and thanks for the photo, Brian McMillan.

Rust Scapes – solo show

14 abstract photographs from my deep dive into rust – I’ve always loved texture, and found myself shooting the minutiae of 4 rusty cars on a Sunday morning in Sacramento. I realize that besides liking the aesthetics of texture, I feel good making something new or positive out of detritis. In any case, the opening reception at the Bay View Boat Club was well attended and the closing reception will be in my very own living room since the clubhouse is getting re-floored. Many prints of the best from my recent travels to South America and France on hand as well.

Anyone reading this in the San Francisco area is welcome to contact me for details about the closing reception on Monday, June 25th in Dogpatch.

My Jazz Photos selected for local Jazz Fest


I’m really pleased that 30 of my jazz photos will be gracing the walls of the 7 Mile House in Brisbane under the banner “Jazz Wall of Fame”. In addition, about a hundred of them are on the club’s website and will be in the slideshow during the day-long festival.

One month into my Summer Residency


I have been neglecting this page. Finding out that spending every weekend in an art show is a tiny bit taxing! Like on weekdays I sleep until 10 am if I don’t set an alarm. But it’s been a fun time; I’ve met lots of cool people, had great feedback, and sold a few items. My reception was very well attended and I’m now planning a closing reception for 3 weeks from now. Here is a little composite of life in The Troll House so far.
