8th Street Studio

My 8th Street Studio and its day to day, or maybe it will be week to week digression on my studio issues, art thoughts, and the duality experience between conceptual/rational and nonconceptual/intuitive. Grid and ground contained all within.



Studio Log


I had the pleasure last evening of discovering my diptych has been added to a Bay Area government organization

- The Metropolitan Transportation Commission and Bay Area Toll Authority MTC.

I am quite thrilled with this new connection to the Bay Area!

The work is a diptych, 48" x 120" wide, oil on canvas titled "The Sight of Sandhill Cranes", oil on canvas.

This painting holds its roots to when I visited the wetlands near Los Banos, California and experienced the amazing activities of the migrating sandhill cranes.



has most recent updates.

But beginning again here.

I am working in a temporary space as I lost my studio I had been in for 15 years due to rent increases (in SF - almost triple).

Here is an image of two works currently in process.

There are colors outside, yellow flowers and greens that might be influencing. There is a lot of isolation at this temporary dig - it usually
takes me about a day to get used to it. But once there, and once focused, the quietness of the space begins to inform my work.


To begin again - greetings, 2016!

Not sure where to start. For recent updates please go to my blog:


My inventory process from 2013 ran amuck and this is where I left off.

Currently I am working on developing photography skills - second class. Here are a few photographs from the last class.


Look back here soon to see if I can keep this up.


The inventory project taking longer than I thought - labeling each work as I go and covering gently in plastic. I have the remaining 7' x 7' works to go plus the black and white works on paper. Then I'll need to photograph the smaller works which I do not keep at the studio.

The opening last Thursday evening went fine; it is nice to have my work up and out of the studio.
