Opening Night at the Nicolaysen













Yesterday was opening night for my show and artist talk for "The Magic of Africa" at the Nicolaysen Art Museum in Casper.  The show will be in the Rosenthal Gallery through January 22, of 2017.  The paintings in this show were inspired by our 2009 visit to the Serengeti of Tanzania.  Many of the wildlife species depicted in this body of work are either threatened or endangered.  Climate change is but one of the factors threatening Africa's wildlife species.  These iconic wildlife populations are being decimated by poaching and habitat loss.  It is my hope that my art will make a connection with the viewer that fosters conservation values.

Lincoln Center Holiday 100 show, Fort Collins

This watercolor painting "Iceberg Lake" was one of the studies that was done after my 2013 Artist in Residency in Rocky Mountain National Park.  Three of these paintings were selected for the upcoming Holiday 100 show in the lobby of the Lincoln Center in Fort Collins in mid-November through December of this year.

2017 Wyoming Governor's Show



















My watercolor portrait "Sun Dance Kid" has been selected for the 2017 Wyoming Governor's Capitol Art Exhibition in Cheyenne, Wyoming.  This young man was one of the dancers at Cheyenne Indian Village during Cheyenne Frontier Days several years ago.  He was one of the Little Sun and Drum Dance group.  Many of these dancers are Arapaho, a tribe that practices the Sun Dance ceremony.

William Henry Jackson exhibit

Visited a gallery in Mancos, Colorado to view early photochroms by William Henry Jackson, whose work was important in the decision to establish Yellowstone as the nation's first national park.  Amazing exhibit, and Jackson is one of my heros.
