What it's all About


First Item of Note: I am a multiplatform, primarily visual, artist - that means I make art across a number of "genres" (for want of a better word) - these include semi-surrealist mixed media, straight-up portraiture and, more recently, landscape/structure paintings. I also write. This blog is an addendum to My Website, so to view my work, read my artist's statements (generally these are on the Gallery intro pages, check out my CV / resume, and learn more about who I am, please visit it.

I started this blog in late 2013 - annoyingly I wasn't able to upload my already existing Live Journal blog which predated my website and was, in truth, more like a website - it is kind of abandoned for now.  I decided to make this new blog about work-in-progress, project updates, and whatever else seems worthy of note including the occasional rant. So it is, in fact, a normal blog. In the beginning, I was aware that I was writing it for an imaginary reader, so I decided to give that reader a name: Phan the Fan, my phantom fan. Phan keeps the exercise from feeling too lonely and we've become quite good friends.

Second Item of Note: check out my commentaries about art on Roll Magazine online.
This link brings you to my author archive.

Also Worthy of Note: periodically I teach classes at the Woodstock School of Art (WSA) entitled "The Contemporary Portrait." The classes generally run for 8 weeks - usually at WSA people pay for each set of four classes in advance and that works out at $140 or $35 per class + an additional $40 model fee (or $10 per week) - when there is a model. My next class will be in the fall of 2017 as, from September 2016 to July 2017, I'll be living and making art in Berlin. For more info about the WSA and *to sign up, go to the WSA website.

Following is a fun-house (courtesy of photoshop) photograph of my "Community" portrait project currently (June 2016) on view at Wired Gallery. See my latest blog post about that. And thanks for checking out my blog.
