Mid-Century Modern and mysterious landscapes

Are you ready for the best kids’ gift ever?! Click here for this week’s find!

Over 100 cities, as well as 100s of abstracted landscapes and wildlife and lots of variations thereof

I’ve been painting full time for almost 20 years, had a public studio in downtown Raleigh for 8 years, and owned a gallery there. I’ve traveled all over the great United States, participating in juried art events and meeting tens of thousands of people like you!

As of 2020, I am entertaining commissions and re-workings of existing pieces. There is a series of more than 20 dinosaurs, all new originals in various sizes which are available as prints at the GeoGalleries link below. In the works is a great little book, or two, of these. The next series of dinosaurs are very whimsical, for younger children.

My amazing collectors continue to commission new cities. Denver and a remix of Phoenix are available now as prints, and Minneapolis is on the work table.

Obviously, dinosaurs have become my new obsession. Watching a 4 year old, half a continent away, open a painting of a dinosaur by “Nanasaurus” is the best thing ever!

Diving into dinosaurs was the best thing I did in 2020. I wrote about it in “what I think about.”

Evidently the creativity thing is best enjoyed with another flavor, like writing. Songwriters pick up painting, and painters sometimes write. I encourage you all to do either or any other creative pursuit that brings you pleasure.

Thank you for your interest in my view of the world!
