I'm beyond grateful and excited to share that I was chosen to display four or five paintings in Bob Seger's dressing room on March 7th, at the Frank Erwin Center in Austin, Texas. The opportunity is part of LiveNation's new artist hospitality program. Apparently, artist and performers have been requesting local art be displayed in the different cities they perform in, to create a vibe and get a better feeling for said city. I'm looking forward to contributing and helping to make Mr. Seger's last Austin concert a memorable and groovy experience. I've been a fan for as long as I can remember, and this one should be a doozy!!! I'll update this post with photos sometime after the concert.

In May of 2018 I was contacted with a proposal to have one of my paintings reproduced in giclee form and installed at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in downtown Austin. I of course accepted the proposal and the painting was approved and installed in late summer of this year. I do not know where the painting is located in the hotel, but I look forward to making the Hyatt part of my personal Austin hotel art treasure hunt sometime in 2019.
The painting is titled "Magnolia" and was created in 2015. The original is composed of acrylic, graphite, polymers, and oil pastel and is 48x36 inches on gallery wrap canvas.

With one weekend of EAST 2017 already in the books, I'm a bit tardy to share that I am participating this year as a guest of Susannah Blanton Art and Design. Susannah is a dear friend and amazing artist. Her work is included and on display at stop #260. I am beyond grateful that she asked me to be her guest artist this year.
I have over 30 paintings on display and available for purchase this year. Please swing by and say hello! I will be there from 11-6pm on both November 18th and 19th. The address is:

I am honored and excited to have been asked to participate in the 2017 BMC Design Artist Invitational. This is a year long exhibit featuring the work of five completely different stylized and accomplished artists. The exhibit will be on display until March of 2018. Viewings and consultations can be scheduled through me, as the BMC Design Center is open to the trade only. If interested in seeing the exhibit, please contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org

Recently, I got word that an original painting commission was approved and will be installed at the Four Seasons Hotel Austin. I am very humbled and grateful for the opportunity to create an original painting for such a magnificent and wonderful hotel. This is the second commissioned project this year for an Austin hotel. These projects are completely invigorating and rewarding for me in ways words just can't express. As I start this painting today, I am reminded of my humble beginnings,...painting in my home back in Dallas fifteen years ago with not a care in the world, and no idea that one day I would be asked to create a painting for such a recognizable and distinguished hotel.
I'm very excited to share the news that some of my original paintings were reproduced in giclee form and installed over the summer at the Hilton Garden Inn Convention Center in downtown Austin. This is the first hotel to commission my work in my now hometown of ten years. I haven't had a chance to see the seven pieces in person yet, but I very much look forward to visiting the hotel and I will take some pics and share in the near future.

I am excited and grateful to have been asked to display my work at The Fish Grill in downtown Waxahachie, Texas. The Fish Grill is a wonderful new restaurant on the square just 30 minutes south of Dallas. Built around 1900, this fine old building served as the Ellis County Tax Office...now it is home to a fine/casual restaurant, offering seafood, steak, chicken and other delectable bites to the community. Brass, marble, tall ceilings and giant windows, a mezzanine overlooking the courthouse, and amazing cuisine, all make for a wonderful experience at The Fish Grill. The fourteen original works will be on display and for sale indefinitely. I will post more pictures of the installation in the near future.

I was recently contacted by hip hop artist Kholumbo to create a painting for his album cover. I thoroughly enjoyed working with him during the creative process. He was very pleased with the final product, which in turn, I was fully satisfied and grateful for the opportunity. His self produced EP is now on Soundcloud.com. Here is the link to his music:
