Side by Side Show


Creating two new photography-based digital abstracts for a Side by Side Show June 18-July 11 at Gaslight Art Colony in Marshall, Illinois was an exciting challenge and rewarding experience!

The prospectus for this show encouraged a photographer and another artist to share two points of view on the same subject. The two mediums are then displayed side by side in the gallery.

Until this show, I have only used my original photographic images to design my abstracts.

For this unique theme, I collaborated with artist friend Todd Stokes who provided his original photos of a rotary phone dial and a yellow flower classified by a Google search as Coreopsis, similar in appearance to daisies.

A close look at “Conversation Piece” hints to its origin, but no one could ever guess the original image used to create “Clowning Around.” Both are perfect examples of the abstract in nature designs I love to create!

The entire show is a unique viewing experience for gallery patrons!

‘Jazz and Blues’ on display at Greek’s Pizzeria – Terre Haute


Excited that my “Jazz and Blues” diptych will be displayed in Greek’s Pizzeria at 600 Wabash Ave. in Terre Haute for a few months. Thank you owner Justin Fox!

“Jazz” received a Third Place in an exhibition during Union Hospital’s 125th anniversary celebration in 2017.

“Blues,” created using the same photographic image, also is floated off white acrylic.

Both photography-based abstract art pieces were created using a photo I made of a flower on a cactus that only blooms once at year and at night!
