    Recent show

    2010 - 04.06

    In this gallery are photos of a recent show at Arte de la luz in Fresno which is the gallery that I have been working with. The show includes paintings and some recently finished ceramic sculptures. included is a picture of the sculpture I created for the Trail Of The Trout.
    I was also able to visit Lone Pine recently and I took some photos of the mural my class did on the art building. The mural is holding up after almost a year of weather and sunlight.
    Also in this gallery are some paintings and drawings from different time periods. A business card logo that my freind JL designed for me and some travel photos.

    Nepal is a beautiful place. It was a blessing for me to be able to visit there.We went through jungle, mountains and deserts. These are some of the sketches and paintings I made. There are more that I am still working on.

    Peace to Angsheri, Lapsang, Jigdol and Tamding.

    The gallery titled ceram2 has photos of some of the ceramic sculptures I made while teaching at Lone Pine and Buchanan high schools. Drew Wickman was my main ceramics teacher and I am grateful to him for all the help and guidance he gave me. These pieces tend to be humourous and fantastical. I also included a painting I recently finished of Ron Hobbs on Treasure Island.

    A portfolio

    2010 - 02.19

    I haven’t designed this site to be a completley professional representation of my art because I am interested in displaying lots of different creations. A professional portfolio should be trimmed to only the best paintings all in the same style. The gallery named Folio is mainly my most recent paintings done in the last year along with some other paintings that I am satisfied with. This Gallery is a sample of all the different subject matter that I am interested in: People, Animals, Fantasy,
    Landscapes, Travel, Sculpture and Christianity.

    At some point I will probably ask some knowledgable people to give me some critical feedback and present a gallery that is as proffessional as I can be; until then this is just more art.


    2010 - 02.14

    I scanned my sketchbook from 2000 which was the first year I worked at the SF MOMA. The title of the book is: “Bone Glue Stone True All He Knew”. The Device of naming sketchbooks was definitley influenced by Barron Storey; along with adding highlights into my work. Who knew such a simple and obvious technique could make such a difference.
    Working at The MOMA was a big step for me. Even though the coat check was the absolute bottom rung it was still a great job. I worked with an awesome crowd of diverse people. The management didn’t mind if we sketched or read during down time. We sometimes got tips and free tickets to the museum. I remember getting there early a couple of times and sketching in the foyer.It aslo later opened the door for me to work in the Oakland museum and the SOCP.

     The thing about the MOMA is that the architecture is great, wide open and clean. Sometimes the art wasn’t to my taste but we got to experience it up close.
    I was able to show a piece of art in the employee show and actually get on to the upper level. There was almost a class divide between the people who worked on the upper floors and the entrance floor.
    Featured here are: Coatcheck Dave, young Dimitree, Aracelli, Jigdol, Anna, Bernard, John, Gothic jenny, Stoic Jen, Stephanie, Jasmine, Jose, I’ll rather lounge Pepe, And from my SF life at that time: Micah, JJ, Django, Sonny, Jennifer L, Peter and Lucky.
    To the many other people who worked in the MOMA: Wally, Winnie the true, Justin, Jeff, Marcia, Beth, Sara, And Claiborne I wish I had drawn you too.

    It seems Like I came this…close to getting in the New Yorker but I should know it wouldn’t be that easy.

    Well, here is some more art.

    2010 - 02.11

    Some old , bad self portraits but I post them just to show the variation over time. I say variation not growth because some of them have a good deal of time between but aren’t necessarily better. Also some other random drawings and details of paintings.

    More Art

    2010 - 02.06

    I will continue photographing and scanning different art for this site . Although many of these galleries are selections of random pieces; I plan to collect groups of drawings and paintings with similar themes for some upcoming galleries.

    Most of this art is from my mid- past

    2010 - 01.30

    This represents about ten years after I graduated college to about when I started teaching. There are a lot of experiments and paintings that are finished about 75%. I find it difficult to go back and finish that last 25% percent unless the painting was made for a specific goal. Especially when the painting has just been sitting there. Anyways, I worked with my brother JJ on a lot of these. Those were good times, he did a lot of the Logos and lettering in the paintings.

    Hello to everyone viewing this!

    2010 - 01.23

    Thank you for visiting. This site will feature my artwork and writing and maybe other creative ventures. I recently finished a book which I am happy with. The book features what I feel are my best artworks from over the past twenty years. I have a lot of other art which I still like and I feel is worthy of presenting. I finished the book quickly, so a lot of these other pieces were in storage and I wasn’t able to photograph them in time. Artwork is sentimental in the sense that I can look at any of these pictures and be transported back to the time I made it. These pieces go back to my time at San Jose State and span through: AG Photo, The SF MOMA, The Society of California Pioneers, Elephant Pharmacy, and Cal State Eastbay. They include travel paintings from Nepal, Peru and Vietnam, also Oakland, Berkeley, Richmond and San Francisco.
    I will also be scanning the stuff I like from my sketchbooks over the years.
    I hope you enjoy it.
    Whats up to all my friends!
