News and New Work, Summer, 2021

A Big Commission

I’ve be invited to design art for about 550 square feet of wall space in the new branch of the Odessa Brown Children’s Clinic, now under construction in the Seattle’s Othello neighborhood. This is large work, intended to be over 8 feet in height. So the images here lack considerable detail.

By contract I cannot show the chosen work until the clinic’s formal announcement later in the year. But here are some of what I created that will not be included in the final project but are available for exhibition, rental, and purchase.

Newest Works, July 2020

I am continuing a productive stretch but wish that I could be completing physical prints of my new work, something that is out of bounds for me until the quality facilities I need are again open to me. Still, I am pleased to preview the following for you. Click on any image to open in image viewer.

New Works from May and June

Silence. Life within the new, close boundaries that COVID has set for us is quieter in all sorts of ways. Less traffic noise, more birdsong. Fewer live voices. But as May and June have shown us, the times are begging for our voices to be heard. At my age COVID makes makes joining together physically too risky. So I have struggled to put my voice of anger and of promise and of unity and of freedom into my work. But that work needs to be seen for the voice be heard. So I thank you for listening to the following.
