RayMar Art Finalist, October 2014

 Judge's Comments: Love all the temperature shifts in this painting. subtle temperature shifts help change the plan on the face and these are done wonderfully. Love the abstract quality of the background. It's not overworked. The little spots of red behind his face are brilliant. - Elizabeth Robbins



Poultry Merchant, oil on canvas, 30" x 24"

Sekula's Fine Art and Antiques, Sacramento, California


RayMar Art Finalist, July 2014

Judge's Comments: A masterful vignette painting, vaulted into the realm of greatness by what looks to be absolute control of brushwork, edges and underpainting. The color harmonies make one swoon, and the fact that we are looking through a shop window is telegraphed intelligently and subtly (the vertical band on the extreme left, the lettering overwriting the hanging onions, the vertical color variation on the shopkeeper's arm and shirt...). I'd like to see this one in real life. Benissimo! - Charlie Hunter
