A lot can happen in a month, huh?
February is always an ugly, cold, grey month. It’s a good time to ignore the wintry weather outside and get some work done inside. This month in studio a lot of time was devoted to writing, budgets, and future opportunities.
Coming down from what amounted to a five week sojourn away from studio and Kansas City wasn’t as bad as I imagined. Productivity, however, was not at an all time high.
Here’s a look at the first of my three day whirlwind tour of the Louvre in Paris.

There are some strange vibes in the studio these days. With a big art show that I have spent entirely too many months working to pull off, there’s a strange calm in the air.

The big day is coming! The culmination of two and a half years of work will finally debut on November 7, 2019. ‘Don’t You Blow Your Big Top‘ opens at the Foundation Event Space in Kansas City’s West Bottoms.
My show is drawing closer so that means it’s just paint, paint, paint in studio. There’s a lot going on, with future plans floating in the ether, so I’m spending my days finishing paintings.
Some upcoming art shows were behind the thrust of work in September, which all revolved around getting some oil painting done.
Sometimes it’s easier to just write about what I’m painting about than actually write some bullshit artist statement. Here’s what boxing, bullfighting, rodeo clowns, sideshows and carnivals mean to me. Hold on to your pants, this could get wordy.
