• Announcing The Museum of Northwest Art's 2021 art auction!

     

    MoNA holds these auctions annually but this year has the added distinction of being their 40 year anniversary. That's a major milestone, alright. I speak from experience, having recently crossed the 40-year threshold as well.

     

    I'm participating in MoNA's auction for my first time with a submission of the 4 images below. These are all from my A Tree A Day collection from 2019. Some art from this collection is still available in my website store but these four will be among the more than 300 pieces in MoNA's auction.


  • It’s been almost 6 months since I created a new blog post. That’s definitely a departure from my intended once-a-month blogging schedule. Alas. “Man proposeth, God disposeth,” as the saying goes. There’s a little bit of King James English for you. Got to love the -eth suffix.

     

    Still, a lot has happened in the last 6 months. Since I haven’t yet managed to turn my art into a steady source of income I’ve had to resort to doing some odd jobs around Anacortes, Washington, where I live. I’ve developed many skills during my years in the monastery (and before) that seem to be in high demand in the small town of Anacortes. It’s a popular retirement destination, after all, so you can imagine a lot of elderly people that need help with all types of things. Gardening, painting, cleaning, home repairs, and care-giving are some of the things people want to pay me for. Now I just have to figure out how to get people to want to pay me for my art!

     

    Speaking of art, I have had some noteworthy developments which I’d like to share with you.


  • It’s that time of month again. I mean that time when another one of my character designs steps onto the stage. This is Hermez, the second character under my new Modern Gawdz™ line.

     

    Hermez is an all-around great guy but, due to his all-around greatness he can be somewhat arrogant at times. He’s working on it. These things take time!
