Fall Newsletter
"Pryor Mountain Protégé" (30x54 - oil) - Submitted for The Russell 2018
I hope this finds you all well! It's hard to believe another summer has come and gone and that we are well into Fall.

I apologize for not sending out a newsletter sooner, I've completely revamped my website and am still ironing out some of the details. I have a lot to share with you:
Featured Artist in Big Sky Journal
I have been honored with a feature article in Big Sky Journal's most recent Arts Issue.

This is my first large feature in an arts magazine, and I hope you all have the chance to see it. I have several copies available if you would like me to send you one (just email me with a request), otherwise you can view a similar digital version online.
Some of my most recent works
"Afternoon Slumber" (9x12 - oil)
"Standing Proud" (12x12 - oil)
"One Fine Lady" (10x8 - oil)
Available at The Brinton 101
"A Fleeting Glance" (14x11 - oil)
"Tried and True" (6x9 - oil)
"Two of a Kind" (12x12 - oil)
Adding New Figurative Work
I had the opportunity back in June to visit the Haythorn Ranch in Arthur, Nebraska. The Haythorns are apart of a sixth generation legacy, preserving some of the richest history in the West. These paintings below are just a beginning of this new dimension to my work, depicting some of the experiences I had. It was an incredible honor to witness these wonderful people who are preserving such an important piece of western heritage.
"The Cook" (20x16 - oil)
"Simple Things" (14x11 - oil)
Fine Art Canvas Prints Now Available
One reason I updated my website is to add the option to sell fine art canvas prints of my paintings.

All prints purchased through my online store are proofed by me to ensure the highest quality and color accuracy possible.

At this time I am offering prints that can be framed, and prints that are stretched or gallery wrapped--needing no frame. Below is a description of the finishes I offer.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions regarding prints.
Upcoming Events
This Friday, October 6th, I will be at Terakedis Fine Art in Billings, MT for the art walk. I am one of the featured artist, and will have a large selection of available works. I hope if you're in the area, you can stop by. There will be great art, drinks and hors d'oeuvres. Doors open at 4 pm.
It's time again for the Brinton Museum's small works exhibition. This year they are featuring 101 artists, with each artist showing up to three works. Hope to see you there!
Current Work in Progress
"Tight and Ready" (34 x 24 - oil)
Well, that's it for now. I hope again, that you are well and that you have a wonderful Fall season. Please let me know if you have any need of my assistance, as well as feedback on my website.
