I just sent off “Deadpan” for the anniversary show at the Sacred Machine Gallery in Tucson, AZ. I am extremely privileged to have been invited to participate in their one year anniversary show. I have been an admirer of Daniel Martin Diaz’s (gallery owner/artist) work for many years now. To show side by side with him and the other talented artists he has invited is an amazing honor for me. Please take a look at the information below and if you’re in the area the opening will be fantastic I am sure. Please contact the gallery if you are interested in purchasing “Deapan”. Click on image below for more info!


My wife is doing the show and I’m starting to think about what comes next. Can’t wait to go into the studio. Stay tuned…
