Limited Edition "Pool and Palms" Print

I'm pleased to announce a limited edition print run of my painting Pool and Palms.  This piece is now available on my online print shop and comes signed and numbered in an edition of only 100.  Once they're gone, they're gone.  Printed using archival inks on high quality photo-rag paper, this will surely add some mid-century flare to any place needing a little "refreshening."

Playing House

I've always wanted to add a sculptural element to my work.  Seeing as how my paintings focus on mid-century architecture, it only seemed fitting that my first 3-D piece I create be an architectural model.  I started with some ideas I had for a classic Modern house and sketched out some rough drafts.  I then finalized a ground plan and did some rough elevations before diving into the world of balsa wood.  This piece will make its debut at the Laguna Art Museum on May 10th, 2013.

The Modern Mindset

Just a reminder, I'll be speaking on a panel discussion sponsored by California Home + Design Magazine this Saturday at 11am.  Come out to the Modern Living Expo in Palm Springs as I sit down with Trina Turk, Chris Menrad, and Barbara Bestor, and we take questions from CA H+D editor Erin Feher.  We'll be discussing Modernism purists vs. those that re-invision Modernist principles and how we all fit into the mid-century mold.  For more info and tickets, click here:
