I HAVE RETURNED SORRY FOR BEING GONE SO LONG

OKAY, I know I have not posted on this blog in over three years but I am rededicating myself to a once a month post beginning today the 1st of Sept. 2019. Quick update for those that don't know LMAO cause who follows this and doesn't know but anyway. I have finished grad school, lived in Utah for a gorgeous summer to mid winter minute, moved in with my Rents for a while, started teaching at my old Junior College/Community College, and have moved now to the StL. So like I have said I moved to the StL this past spring its been tough being alone now and trying to make work while working and struggling to make ends meet. I got a pretty good deal at the moment I get a place to live while I work on a this place for the owner. But there is a time frame for the work to be done, gonna try to stay and get some roommates when that time comes. Not really into roommates but gotta do what I gotta do at this time.

I have shown work in KCMO since moving back to my home town area. I had a show last year (2018) with the Kiosk Gallery, if you are in KCMO check them out they are in the Livestock Exchange Building in the West Bottoms. https://kioskgallerykc.com/


Parts of Something, which was a collection of works from my time in grad school with one of the pieces being reworked due to damage with all of my recent moving, I think it looks better now.


After that I was contacted by one of the co-directors (Lisa Guavara) at Tugboat Gallery (http://www.tugboat.gallery/ ) in Lincoln, NE about participating in a group show with them this summer. And I was like yeah lets do it. That was in June and I drove up to install three large works and hang out for the opening.

After that adventure which it was due to the flooding of the Missouri river and the trek I drove into Kansas, I didn't do much till I drove back up to uninstall my pieces. Second trip much smoother as the flood waters had started to recede and I29 was open.

For the summer I have worked on the house and for the St. Louis Artist Guild, started on some paintings for the U-City Library (http://www.ucpl.lib.mo.us/) where I will be showing this coming March 2020. No real deets on that at the moment so here is a WIP


It doesn't even look like this as I type this, and will change even more tonight. So that catches ya up on the art making side. Oh SHIT I almost forgot I also installed a new Fake Rock False Boulder at the St. Louis Artist Guild the 1st week of August.

So that takes care of the art making I will address some of the other shit next month like how teaching is going what I am teaching/have been teaching.  And some stuff that is inspiring me lately too, see you all next month.
