One more piece for the "Introductions" show at Abend Gallery opening this Friday, July 10th. (2015)

The heliosphere is the region of space that surrounds our solar system, where the solar wind (plasma) from our sun radiates outward and the magnetic field of the sun dominates space. This area ends well beyond Pluto. There, it meets the interstellar medium and it's boundary protects our solar system from most of the galactic cosmic rays coming from interstellar space.

Another piece for the "Introductions" show at Abend GalleryGallery opening this Friday, July 10th. The show is a group exhibit of new featured artists at the gallery. I'll be in attendance at the opening in Denver on July 10th for real in-person introductions, so if you're in the area come say hi.

This is another piece inspired by the poetic fact that many of the atoms that make up our bodies and the world around us have not always existed. They were fused in the cores of old stars that have since exploded and enriched the the material that formed new stars and planets including Earth and everything on it. We are made of starstuff, as Carl Sagan so eloquently expressed in his Cosmos series and Neil deGrasse Tyson in this video:
Last month I was very excited to announce that this painting has received the Best of Show award in the National Oil & Acrylic Painters' Society annual "Best of America" exhibition. Well, the December issue of the Artist's Magazine has been released and I can now tell you that the same painting has received an Honorable Mention in the Magazine's 30th Annual Art Competition in the figure and portrait category! I'm honored once again to be in the company of so many great artists. Go check out all the other great art in this issue on the news stands. You can see an excerpt of the magazine on my blog:…

I just wanted to say I love your art! Especially the astronomy ones, they're gorgeous. Random note, I don't know if it's me but I feel you also use the same model in many works and that sort of adds a bit of mystery to your paintings, so that's a nice touch. Anyway, fantastic gallery, keep it up and thanks for sharing with us!
