Thanks to everyone who stopped to look at my artwork at the Santa Monica Art Walk along Montana Avenue on Thursday evening. It was nice talking to many or you.
I hope you’ll take advantage of my SPECIAL ART WALK 20% DISCOUNT:
- Just leave me a note through my Contact Form by July 31 that my work caught your eye.

Brothers. Oil on Canvas. 20″ x 24″
I just finished a new painting. See it up close and personal in my website Art Gallery and leave a comment to let me know what you think. If you like it, I’d appreciate you sharing this link with your friends and family.
I’ve made major layout and color changes to my entire Arts Showcase and simplified my Commissioned Oil Paintings price list. Take a look.
I spent the last week tweaking my site and trying to optimize it for Google and Yahoo searches. I think I may have confused search engines temporarily. But once the crawlers redo their thing, everything should get straightened out.
Today I’m officially going online. It took me a little longer than I anticipated, but my site is finally in good enough shape for the world to see. I’ll be making a few tweaks here and there and will have the first chapters on my graphic novels ready to launch in a couple of months, so check back often and spread the word.
Today I post my very first blog entry ever — on a date that will be more significantly remembered, I’m afraid, as the last repeating date of the 21st Century: 12-12-12. Not until 01-01-01 (2101 that is) will there be another such repeater.
I can only dream that when those next identical triplets roll around, someone might muse over them as being my 149th birthday. But, like today, that future date, in and of itself, will again take precedence over anything to do with me, because it will be the very first day of the 22nd Century. (Yes, contrary to popular opinion, I hold that the “0” years are the last years of each decade, century and millennium, not the first. But don’t get me started on that!)
The important thing about all the above is January 1 (not 2101, but 2013). That’s the date I hope to officially open this blog site and start publishing some of my artwork and graphic novels, among other things. But a lot of design work needs to be done by then. So, I better get crackin’.
