Solo Exhibition in May

This May, I'll be exhibiting a large group of portraits at Ignition Gallery in Vashon, WA. This will be the largest exhibition of these works to date, most of which have not been shown before.                   Beginning in the summer of 2010, I have been inviting friends, neighbors, and other artists into my space for single-session portraits. I paint each person in the space of an afternoon, usually over coffee, simultaneously conversing with a friend and abstractly studying their face. This work has been an immensely satisfying part of my practice and I am very excited to show these paintings en masse. We'll have an opening reception on Friday, May 4th, which will feature dozens of paintings, a few of their subjects, and a TACO TRUCK. That's right, my opening will have a taco truck. I will also be running two artist workshops on portrait painting May 12th and May 19th. The Vashon Island workshops will include all materials and tools, live models, and catered lunch. Details here.
