Evening of Art Openings

This Saturday's art-going consisted of:

Angles Gallery where Eva Struble was having her first LA show (though she is currently residing in Barcelona)...

Track 16 where Jeremy Lipking's exquisite realist paintings still made me long for a unique interpretation of experience...

Richard Heller where Victoria Reynolds showed her gruesome yet playful paintings of raw meat...

Mark Moore Gallery where I met Ali Smith, and several other Bergamot Station openings... ultimately ending the night at

Corey Helford Gallery with the Carlos Ramos show where I was happy to meet Carlos and also Korin Faught- a sweet figure painter that I admire (shown top left).

Juxtapoz Retrospective Opening at Laguna Art Museum

The opening of "In The Land Of Retinal Delights: The Juxtapoz Factor" proved quite entertaining and Fred Stonehouse introduced me to a lot of great people including Gary Baseman (also pictured left).

Kate Hudson and Lance Armstrong made an appearance. That picture cred and more about the Juxtapoz show here.

Relocation: Los Angeles

Hey everyone,

I have been enjoying getting to know LA including the access to major art collections and the many emerging and established galleries (not to mention the weather)! There seems to be a wonderful 'vibe' for figure painting and I'm excited to get to know the other artists and enthusiasts.

On a side note: I started a little blog called LA Painter where I'm posting other artists/paintings in LA that are currently on view. It is partly for me to keep track, but maybe you'll enjoy it too and share your opinions.

Looking forward to painting and posting for you again soon,
