Quick little news update amongst all the Sweet Nothings here. I just got my copy of the latest issue of New American Paintings. I'm fortunate to be in this issue for my larger works on panel, so, check 'em out. There's a lot of great work AND I got a little mention in the front matter from the Juror's Comments.

Check out the New American Paintings #99 MFA Annual out on shelves now. If you buy a copy from this link http://www.newamericanpaintings.com/99discounted.html you can shave a couple dollars off the cost. I consider myself fortunate for being selected to have my work appear along so many talented MFA candidates from around the nation. It's also been great hearing from subscribers of the magazine... a couple accolades received from some great artist and peers. As of yet, I haven't had many crazies to come out of the woodwork to congratualte me, just one, in a brief but nonetheless awkward texting session. But it's still on the shelves for a bit longer... so, maybe I'll get lucky and score a few more odd exchanges.
Below are a few photos of the issue, including my bio pic, provided by presidential photog. Adam Kuehl- thanks Adam.
I've decided to shake the monkey off my back that is website coding and start hosting my site using a template created by a third-party. Check back periodically and become witness to the transformation. Those of you that were familiar with my old site will notice that most of the old work has been "swept under the rug" so to speak, excluding a few little "gems" that get to stick around in my portfolio so long as they keep bringing in the eyes.
While jumping to this new platform has been really beneficial in a number of ways, it has unfortunately had one consequence that isn't so great; namely the loss of my old blog posts. So, expect some lost reruns here... or rather, they're not really reruns, in that a rerun would imply a copy of old material. They'll be more like new versions of old material, sort of like Melrose Place to Beverly Hills 90210.
