2020

As of July 2020, the Onyx Gallery has moved to another space within the Pacific Place Mall  and is operating part time within the limits necessary due to the Corona Virus Pandemic.  Meanwhile, here in Mesa, AZ, I've done a few small sketches but haven't painted in over a year. Time flies when you're busy moving a whole life from one state to another. The good news is- I have an art area set up in my house, several blank canvases and many ideas as jumping points to resume painting. BUT, my priority after redesigning this website and completing some home projects, is to finish writing and editing "Climbing Through Windows". Progress on either that book, new art or both will be communicated through this site. 


2019 


Venues and new pieces have been temporarily put on hold since summer 2018 because my art supplies are packed away. I'm in the process of preparing to sell the home and move from Seattle/Renton, WA to Phoenix/Mesa, AZ in 2019. Year-round warmth, sunshine, a slower Desert Southwest lifestyle & lower cost of living in this magical terrain will inspire more peace, health and ART. Also we honor Mark Eaton (2 pals to the right) a dear Scorpio who will live on through his magnificent paintings. He and I clicked immediately and often had deep talks about Life. Mark  passed  on 12*23*18  and will be missed immensely. R.I.P.
