Artwork / 2011
In 2011, I moved to a much larger studio and did a fair amount of commission work, like most of the paintings in this gallery. What’s more, I worked on a new series of paintings that are not portraits, and, with the help of a lot of lovely people, I ran a successful Kickstarter for the series.
On the exhibition end of things, Subjective’s tour ended in 2011 after four successful stops, and I was pleased to participate in A Somewhat Secret Place, a show focusing on disability. This self-portrait was my contribution to that show.
A couple of my paintings, including this one from 2011, are featured in Lorena Kloosterboer’s book Painting in Acrylics: The Indispensable Guide, and my vocal support of free culture was noted by Barry Johnson at Oregon ArtsWatch. I was also interviewed by Cory Huff of The Abundant Artist and part of our conversation is available here.
