AWARDS:
  • With over 5700 entries, I was chosen to be in the Artist’s Magazine Annual Issue coming out Jan/Feb 2018.
  • My Porsche 356A Carrera painting was a cover finalist for the national Porsche Club of America. I didn’t win, but it was a honor to have my cover art chosen as one of the top picks for the year.

CHARITY EVENT: 

I am unable to share the painting just yet, but I have been asked to be one of the 150 national artists to participate in the Build Hope, Not Walls Charity Event. This charity event will take place in October at Canopy Gallery, Austin. I painted a classic vehicle on a brick (the canvas we are all using) as I wanted to acknowledge the vehicles from our past that are driving in Cuba. This exhibition will raise funds to help immigrants and those making a better life in America. I’m thrilled to be a part of this worthy cause.

PAINTINGS IN JULY/AUGUST: I finished the Ford GT #68 painting, and was thrilled that I had 4 collectors wanting to purchase the painting. The painting has gone to a local collector whom also purchased 2 limited edition giclee prints to gift to two Ford executives at Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance 2017. What a honor! More limited edition giclee prints will be available of this painting and 2 others from this year starting mid-October.

I also finished 3 new paintings for my solo exhibition, and am working on a 4th. All these will be available for viewing/sale on my website starting September 9th, 2017
