Huge Mural Unveiled at Olympics

Here it is at last! The Mural Mosaic "Kunamokst". It's 21 feet long and 11 feet high! 180 artists were involved in it's creation, all from the West Coast. It is on display in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, through the Olympic Games. Go to to see an image of the mural with each painting being clickable to it's own window, enlarged with info. My panel is #147. Scroll down my blog to see and read about this panel as it developed.

My art is in a Gallery!

My artwork is now being shown at Howden Art & Framing in Oregon City. This is a very nice, bright and airy gallery full of wonderful stuff! The framing service is top notch with lots of frames to chose from, and the prices are reasonable. I am very excited to see what the future holds as my relationship with this gallery develops. The current show "Give me Shelter", runs through April. I have two paintings in the show, including the one above.
