My Painting "Sweet Memories" 22" x 26" was selected by OPA (Oil Painters of America) and had been in the opening of 24th Annual National Juried Exhibition in Cutter & Cutter Fine Art Galleries, St Augustine, Florida from May 1st - May 25th 2015.

My painting “Sweet Memories” is featured in the May Issue of “South West Art” Magazine – Page 37.

In 2012 I had an opportunity to work with my Friend and mentor Daniel Gerhartz on producing 2 education painting videos.


Here is the detail from daniel Gerhartz website:


"We are pleased to announce that our latest video, “The Beginning of Autumn” is now available at

During this production, as you will see in the trailers, we had ample opportunity to work through the elements.  In this production you will see first hand how I worked through many of the challenges that face the open air painter as well as comprehensively talking through my thought process as the painting developed.  From a thorough explanation of materials to discussions about what truly ignites my passion for painting, this 6 hour presentation afforded me the time and opportunity to share my 25 years of painting experience. As is important to me whenever I teach,  great care was taken to explain the complex points of creating a successful painting in the simplest, most practical terms.  My thanks to Masoud Habibyan for the beautiful filming and precision editing.  Enjoy and great painting!"
