"Between Homes"

For everyone in Richmond, Virginia,
tonight is the opening of my friend and fellow artist
Steven Walker's exhibit
"Between Homes"
at the glavekocen gallery.


Steven's work, in my opinion, is incredible. He will have over 40 pieces at this opening tonight and it will be a treat to see so many of his pieces in one setting. I met Steven at Virginia Commonwealth University in one of our many art classes, I thought he had allot of talent then but WOW has his work taken off! He can capture so much with one paint stroke, his handling of color and compositions are simply amazing! Please check out his work on his website and blog.



The glavekocen gallery is in the Fan on West Main Street and easy to get to if you are familiar to Richmond, Virginia. Please visit there website, blog, become a fan on facebook or follow them on twitter. I hope to you at the opening tonight!

First layer of color blocked in.



Not going as fast as I would like but the first layer of color is blocked in and ready for me to start laying in the second/final layer of color. If everything goes right this painting should be finished by this weekend and dry in time to take to the Waterfowl Festival next week!
