Plus One Gallery - London, England

I am thrilled and honored to announce that I have been accepted into Plus One Gallery, in London.

I shipped these 3 paintings to the gallery a few weeks ago, and just heard today that I have been accepted for representation.

I want to thank James Neil Hollingsworth, Pedro Campos, Jason de Graaf, Simon Hennessey, Tom Martin, Don Eddy and Neil MacCormack for their advice and kind words throughout this process. I guess I'll see you guys at the gallery sometime soon!

I also want to mention that my paintings were packed and shipped alongside works by Ralph Goings (one of my all time heroes), and his very talented son Drew Goings. I don't know why that was such a big deal to me, but it was. There is a fascinating article about Ralph Goings' work here. I love seeing his reference photos alongside his finished paintings. I spoke with Ralph on the phone years ago when I was first starting out as a painter, and he could not have been more gracious and helpful with his advice and opinions.

If you go the Plus One website, you'll see the caliber of talent that is represented by this great gallery. I'm really honored to be included in this group of artists. My name and work will be added to the gallery's website sometime next week. I couldn't think of a nicer pre-Christmas/Hanukkah present than this!
