Plein Air Spirits

Waiting on the Wind

That's right...Larry and I are doing a show in Carmel, Indiana at the Hoosier Salon Gallery.  And we've decided to do things a little differently...

Here's what you need to know...

On Thursday, May 10th, you're invited to the Hoosier Salon Gallery to see a bunch of pictures we painted outdoors.  We picked out a group of work we think is very "plein air"...the fast stuff, the ugly stuff, the fun stuff.  We'll also be displaying 24 blank canvases that evening.  That's right...blank, empty, bare.

During this "preview event", we'll select our subjects from a hat (e.g., an alleyway, a green automobile pre-1998, a late night patron of a drinking establishment willing to pose on the sidewalk for $5 OR a slice of cold pizza) and then we'll pick which blank canvas they'll be painted on.  Heck, we'll even throw a price tag on them so you can buy the picture before we paint it...not kidding.  The painting marathon will start that night at the gallery for those who want a free demo.  

On Saturday, May 12th, we'll have our second opening reception.  There will be food, wine, art schmoozing, and with any luck, lots of hollering and roughhousing.  Oh, and we'll have those blank canvases covered with an array of entertaining and aesthetically pleasing subjects.  We'll let you touch the wet paint, if you need the proof.  

We're going to put on one hell of a show and we're going to have one hell of a good time doing it...and you're invited.

Thank You

I'd like to thank all of the friends, family, students, and strangers that came to see my pop-up show in Linton on Saturday and Sunday.  I'd also like to thank the people that drove by slowly but didn't stop, the people that stopped and stared through the window but didn't come inside, and the people that came inside and ate the food but didn't look at the pictures.  It wouldn't have been the same without you...

Jokes aside, there were a few people that really did surprise me and it made the whole adventure worthwhile.  Thank you.

If you missed the fun, you can still see the show by appointment...just get in touch at  And stayed tuned, as there will be a few more events coming to the Main Street Gallery in the near future.
