A Post-Modern Druid

Confession: I hug trees... 

A selection of paintings, all from Virginia except the last one which is from the banks of the Scioto River in Columbus, Ohio where I now live.

In Good Company

Some of my work can be seen in the good company of artists whom I love and admire, in Catherine Kehoe's beautiful collection: Drawings.

Fausto Pirandello, 1899-1975

Recent Paintings & Monotypes at W&L

Recent work is Washington & Lee University in Lexington, VA until December 30. Thirty-some pieces are on view in the McCarthy Gallery in Holekamp Hall, in the Williams School of Commerce, Economics & Government. Opening night was a small reunion. Family, childhood friends, college buddies, artist friends, collectors, and even my teacher from Virginia Tech days, Ray Kass, all turned out to welcome me back to Virginia.

A Painting in Motion

Suzanna Stephens, a student of mine at Ohio Wesleyan University, is responsible for this remarkable visual. She took the photo sequence from a recent posting here and turned them into the time-lapse animation below. Thanks Suzy! If only paintings came off this quickly!
