The first time Elias and I met, at one of the motorcycle get togethers out at the coast, he was asking for a lifeline. “Scott! You have to save me! Dude!” Not even 30, with his wilder years still fresh, this skinny kid had landed in a group of drunk middle aged suburbanites trying to recreate their forgotten years. In this crowd, as Elias saw it, he and I were two sharp tongued jerks who...

October 12,13 & 19,20. 10 am to 5 pm.

The rain is back. In less than two week, it's time to get out and visit some studios - including mine of course. I can't believe another year has come and gone. I have new work to see, some new stories to tell - I'll be sure to repeat some old ones - and, for the first time, prints for sale. If you can believe it, even our house has been painted.

In a few weeks is the Lake Oswego Festival of the Arts. With more than 25,000 people expecting to attend and work from both established and emerging artists and craftsman, this large regional event is a celebration of the arts, food, and music. This year, the 50th anniversary of the festival, I was invited to include work from the 'meat' series for their special exhibition. I'll be exploring...

I'm very pleased to announce that I've been awarded one of the Sustainable Arts Foundation's spring grants. I'm looking for some eloquent words but Woohoo! covers my feelings quite well. This grant buys me time to make mistakes and bad paintings. And, I certainly hope, some good paintings too. This is, for this small family, no small thing.

This foundation takes a somewhat different tack than...

Yesterday, Jane turned three years old. Three!

Everyone asks, "How is Jane?" It's a big question that causes us to stop and a think. The big answer is, "She is great!" It might not always be obvious, but she is. She still can't walk unassisted and has other "delays." But those limitations, where she is on someone's bell curve, are a poor measure of who she is. She's an exploring child that's...

The first question out of many a smiling face has been, "What took you so long?"

Punk's Promise. 28" x 44", Oil on Canvas

It seems obvious to everyone else that I should be painting motorcycles. They've defined my life as much as anything. I've ridden many for too many miles, having crossed the country more than a few times. I've broken bones, slain unwitting deer (I was equally clueless),...

"Where the hell have you been? I've been patiently waiting for the latest scrap of over wrought painter's angst. But nothing."

My apologies. I've been a bit busy. Some parenting, procrastinating, tinkering, motorcycle ass hauling, boulder heaving, successes, failures, and the occasional gin and tonic. Possibly some painting too.
