has been a busy month, raining a bit in Sonoma Valley. My gallery is finally
in a semi-presentable condition. By appointment there have been a few
visitors. Lighting is next. I have found time to add more images to the
web pages... Galleries/Archives and Cliché-verre. More will follow
soon. I have produced my first print on aluminum. Much like the giclée
process, only on a sheet of semi-reflective aluminum instead of paper
or canvas. My first print depicts the Sonoma Mountain image commissioned
by Deerfield Ranch Winery. Now eight feet wide. Once it is installed with
proper lighting in the winery's future tasting room, the visual effects
promise to be stunning. Until it is needed by the winery, the print will
be on view in my gallery.
At last, I have returned to work on the web site. My new studio and gallery
are both almost functional. Hopefully, I will be able to do some art soon.
By December, I expect to have the gallery open for visitors. Through
November 27th, a selection of my art can be seen at the Friends House
gallery at 684 Benicia Drive in Santa Rosa, California
Continue moving and organizing my new studio and gallery.
Do to a change in property ownership, I have been moving to a new studio/residence
during the last few weeks. As a result, I have temporarily had to cease
working on the web site. There are still numerous glitches to resolve
with the site. It is even possible that the site will be down during the
switch to a new host and server. Be patient, and if you need to contact
me by email or phone (707) 833-2602.
It should be obvious this web site is not yet completely born. It has
been alive for only a month. The design and functionality are each in
formative stages. Over the next few weeks, I will add things and make
changes almost every day. In a short time, I expect to make all the needed
adjustments. I hope you will visit the site again as it matures. In the
meantime, if you have questions or comments, just email. And if you wish
to visit my studio/gallery in Sonoma Valley, I would be happy to show
you my art.
