Recently have begun a series of acrylic paintings on paper in the studio. They are in process and am working with atmospheric moments. They were not really intended to be about ideas of the great wave and atmosphere and radioactivity but as I work on these paintings, they feel more and more about those relationships – I have felt deeply for Japan and her people during this time of great tragedy.

I have placed an artwork in an art auction at Works gallery in the South Bay, San Jose, Ca. The auction benefits their acquiring a new space as the location they are in is suffering an unaffordable rent increase. The auction happens tomorrow evening!

My work in the auction is a smallish oil on canvas 18″ x 18″ titled Crayons or Missiles:
