1928 Indian 4, 52" x 42", Oil on Canvas
-work in progress-

A few months back, a friend gave me a tour of some old machines in Wichita. Amongst them was this amazing bike, restored by a friend of his. The painting is very much a work in progress, but the bones are there.

This painting and more can be seen in the next two weekends as part of Portland Open Studios. My studio, along with those of 95 other artists, will be open this weekend and next. You get a special look into the private work spaces, see demonstrations, and learn about their creative process. In other words, if you've ever wondered what it was I was doing back there in the studio at all hours, now is the time to find out.

Second & Third weekends in October:
October 11, 12 and 18, 19
10am to 5pm all days

I'm conveniently just off of NE Alberta (studio #17 on the tour). Start your tour after some breakfast. And, yes, there's a good chance Jane might be doing some of her own demonstrations. If you need directions or have any questions, please contact me.

To learn more about Open Studios and the wide range of artists and artwork please visit:

You can pick up a ticket in one of three forms: Map-only ticket for $5, iPhone or Android app for $9.99, or Tour Guide Calendar for $20.

I have some calendars and maps for sale at my studio.

I hope to see you in the coming weekends.

Thank you,

12" x 12", Oil on Panel

p.p.s. my favorite part of wichita? The tractor:
