About The Artist

My photo
Albuquerque, New Mexico, United States
Hello! I am a fine arts painter, with a BFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. My primary painting medium is oil and alkyd, and mostly I work in a representational style. My greatest challenge as a painter is to capture the effect of light; and my greatest joy as a painter is to accomplish that. Many thanks to those readers who have been following this blog since Day 1 (May 19, 2008). To those who are visiting for the first time today...Welcome, and thanks for dropping by!

Route 66 Exhibit continues...

Photographer Sondra Diepen, at the KiMo Theatre Art Gallery, Albuquerque.

Last week, Sondra Diepen and I met up with friends at the KiMo Theatre Art Gallery who wanted to see our exhibit Then & Now: Rediscovering Route 66.

While we were there, I took this picture of Sondra standing by part of her photo installation of vintage hood ornaments. There are a total of 9 images, all printed on metal, ranging from a 1947 Packard to an International 1964 Travelall—a great collection of car memorabilia. ( See the 1941 Cadillac Flying Lady on my May 15 blogpost.)

The exhibit can still be seen through June 25, with viewing hours Wed thru Sat 11-8pm and Sun 11am-3pm. Access to the Gallery is via the KiMo Theatre Ticket Office, 423 Central Ave NW at the corner of 5th.

Bring a couple of quarters for the parking meters on Central and come see the show. It’s free!

Love these. Can't wait to bring our two pieces home.

And, Carol, where is your work. People would love to see some of it.
