Huge thanks to those of you who visited my solo exhibition at Thos. Moser,
San Francisco which ended December 31, 2014. I am painting now for my next
Thos. Moser solo exhibition in September 2016.

"Lyon Street Steps, Afternoon", is featured in my solo exhibition in San Francisco. I made a video of how this painting was made and you can see it by clicking on the small image of the unfinished painting on the below. Also included in the exhibition are my landscape paintings vibrant with color, beach paintings dancing with movement and still life paintings full of memories. My paintings have been described as “mighty and memorable” by California art critic Josef Woodard.
