Artwork / 2011
In 2011, I moved to a much larger studio and did a fair amount of commission work, like most of the paintings in this gallery.
What’s more, I started work on a project full of non-portrait paintings. With the help of a lot of lovely people, I ran a successful Kickstarter for the series, and these animal drawings were gifts for the project’s backers.
On the exhibition end of things, Subjective’s tour ended in 2011 after four successful stops, and I was pleased to participate in A Somewhat Secret Place, a show focusing on disability. This self-portrait was my contribution to that show.
A couple of my paintings, including this one from 2011, are featured in Lorena Kloosterboer’s book Painting in Acrylics: The Indispensable Guide, and my vocal support of free culture was noted by Barry Johnson at Oregon ArtsWatch. I was also interviewed by Cory Huff of The Abundant Artist and part of our conversation is available here.
