Upcoming Shows

Looking forward to some great shows in the last half of 2021.
Anasazi Heritage – this painting depicts the Spruce House Dwelling in Mesa Verde National Park. Spruce House is located in the background with old, broken pots as the point of interest. Of the three pots in the painting the largest is a black-on-white pitcher, A.D. 875-1050, Anasazi Mineral-Paint Tradition. The second pot is a Frothing Pot first introduced to the Anasazi by the Maya to mix Cacao into a chocolate drink. Black-on-white beaker, A.D. 950-1050, Anasazi Mineral-Paint Tradition. The Bowl in front is black-on-white, A.D. 950-1025, Anasazi Mineral-Paint Tradition.
Step into the Light – depicts a path in one of the missions of San Antonio, Texas. Although the path does not look like this anymore, I took artistic license to paint this part of the mission as it might have once looked. A Serene scene to evoke inner peace in the viewer.
Pots&Corn - Of the three pots in the painting the largest is a black-on-white Pot with the Pueblo Owl design depicted in its side, A.D. 875-1050, Anasazi Mineral-Paint Tradition. The second pot is black-on-white pot depicting Hohokam Load Carrier, A.D. 1000-1200, Anasazi Mineral-Paint Tradition. The Bowl in front is black-on-white, A.D. 950-1025, Anasazi Mineral-Paint Tradition.
Keet Seel – Located about 8 miles from Betatakin Ruin in the Navajo National Monument. A spectacular Cliff Dwelling, Keet Seel is one of the best preserved of all of the Kayenta Anasazi sites as well as the largest in Arizona. This painting depicts the ruin with some interpretive restoration of the small domiciles in front to get a better idea of life at the time. Beautiful golds softened by browns, greens and purples make this a wonderful painting to decorate any home.
Taos Pueblo - Taos Pueblo is an ancient pueblo belonging to a native american tribe of Puebloan people in Taos New Mexico. The Taos community is one of the most private, secretive and conservative of the Pueblos. This painting depicts a day in the life of Taos Pueblo. Pots in the foreground are broken and discarded in the field. The creek runs along side and gives life to the people and the fields.
