my goodness, i cannot believe that i have not posted to the news section on the site since december. i am incredibly sorry about that. that is not to say that i do not have news, but that is a long time. what have i been doing? i have been busy at work on my latest series of paintings, which are posted under the "portraits" heading. i am unsure as to whether or not this will remain the title of the series but for right now, it will do. loosely worded, the series follows the narrative structure of james joyce's "portrait of the artist as a young man" in that each painting, through its layering and development, works through my history as an artist. i will, at some point, write something for this site explaining the series. but at the moment, i am still learning what the series is more latently about, so i will refrain at this time. regardless of all of this, thank you for your patience!
