Two ways to see my art in Northwest Arkansas this summer

I’m happy to report that from mid-June through mid-September, you can see several of my paintings in Northwest Arkansas! I’m showing several paintings through a program that my local art league (Artists of Northwest Arkansas) started this year. It’s called “Art in Professional Spaces” and it’s a great way for local businesses to show works from local artists. This summer, I’m showing works at 2 locations, Bolt NWA in Bentonville, and Harding University in Rogers, Arkansas. If you are in the area, stop by and check out these works, hope you enjoy them!   Hanging artwork at Harding University     Works currently at Bolt NWA

In years past, I’ve seen the paintings as representing a horizontal trip around Arkansas, as I search for striking scenes. I’ve been making the trip from the hilltops of Northwest Arkansas to the Delta flatlands and back again for nearly three decades and the landscape continues to inspire me. Recently I have grown more aware of the […]

Commission – Arkansas Baptist Home for Children, Monticello

Monticello, Arkansas, my hometown, has two children’s’ homes.  The Presbyterian Home is on the southwest part of town and as a child, I passed it many times headed to Green Hill to visit my Mom’s parents.  The Baptist Home is on the north edge of Monticello.  I knew many kids from both and saw them daily at school or athletic practices. About two years ago, Jerry Morrow, who grew up at the Baptist Home, called and asked if I could do a painting of it, showing all of the main buildings that people would remember from the 1950’s to the ’70’s or so.  I said I thought I could manage it if he had enough photos that would allow me to piece all the buildings together.  The boys’ and girls’ dormitories had been torn down since then and they were the most recognizable buildings beside the main or administrative building. Unfortunately at the time he called, I was about to have shoulder surgery so I couldn’t really get started for about three months.  And even then my right arm was not very strong.  Eventually I began drawing the Administrative building in the center and started working my way out on […]
