Live Auction of the woodcut, it went for $1,300.

Purchased a New House in May

Inside my new art studio

My new art studio and utility garage.  Time to get productive again and create some ART!

Moved across the street to a bigger house and bigger lot with an inground pool.  Lots of work and my wonderful parents and friends helped with the move.  Finally had an openhouse on July 16.

Through Our Eyes Feb. 24 - May 7, 2011

In its 18th year, fueled by dialogue resulting from the film, For Colored Girls, and the original 1970s choreopoem, For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow is Enuf, African American artists presented work eploring the complexities of various relationships.  Here are the two paintings I exhibited with this exhibit at the Ritz Theatre and Museum, 829 N. Davis St., Jacksonville, FL
"Guardians of the Rainbow Children"

"Same child two different unions"

My brother-in-law Bob Bahr surprised me at the opening.

All three of these paintings are my work.

With fellow artists James Robinson, Keith Doles, Overstreet Ducasse, Janeece Lyles
