Dear Reader,

Hello! I trust you are well and involved in what interests you. Meanwhile, I have been neglecting the male form a little bit while I work on this current series of stone carvings (more in a moment). So, to keep the shakes and other withdrawal symptoms away, each night after carving stone I have been shaping clay into men.

And now, I am happy to share with you a composition of many male bodies in a functional work of art. This bronze mirror of men is titled Oh Boy and from now until April 30th, you may reserve your very own metal artwork for 10% off the selling price simply by sending the studio a 1/3rd deposit before the deadline. (The balance is due after bronze casting and patina work meets with your approval.) If you prefer to wait for the finished bronze bas-relief, this new artwork will make its debut in Indianapolis at the Franklin Barry Gallery on the 5th of May.

For details and images, please visit:

Hurry - offer ends April 30, 2006.

New Art - Lips Series:

My second solo exhibition at the Franklin Barry Gallery in Indianapolis is opening very soon and will feature the new series of lips sculptures in stone, as well as other goodies. So, I have been working diligently and decided to create a series that is consistent with the idea that the wonderful patterns and shapes in nature repeat themselves. Why mess with good design? While my works are not a literal translation of this idea, this series is more of an exploration and appreciation of how we are all connected.

I am in the finishing stages of most of the new stone carvings and decided my time would be spent more efficiently if I wait until all five carvings are complete before photographing them, but you may take a sneak peak at the works-in-progress below:

Summerville, South Carolina:

Another wonderful event that I hope to see you attend is the 8th Annual Sculpture in the South in Summerville, South Carolina. This 2-day art party is set among a public garden in this charming small town about 30 miles inland from Charleston.

In addition to exhibiting my work, I will show you how I choose and carve stone on both Saturday, 20 May, and Sunday, the 21st. Details online at:

Eugène Carrière Exhibit - Decatur, Illinois:

My favorite painter is coming to America and I just cannot wait! Ok, well, actually Eugène Carrière died in 1906, so I will only get to see some more of his artworks, but hey, that is still pretty cool.

"Eugène Carrière: Shadow and Substance" is making its only appearance in North America from 3 May - 30 June, 2006 in Decatur, Illinois. (The other stops for this centennial exhibit are in Paris and Tokyo.) The exhibit includes about 50 oil paintings, drawings, and pastels from the private collection of Dr. Nick Vlachos, as well as many other items related to the artist's life and an auction of an original Carrière lithograph.

I scheduled my entire May travel itinerary around this exhibit, specifically the talk that will be given on the evening of 12 May by the charming Sylvie Le Gratiet, the president (and co-founder with the artist's grandson) of the Société des Amis d'Eugène Carrière in France. Also that night the hosts will feature music from the 1800s. Don't miss this - it is FREE and bound to be fabulous!

Traveling:

I will be on the road the entire month of May and hope to see you at some point along the way. Besides, Indianapolis, Decatur, and Summerville, I will also be in Chicago and Hickory, North Carolina. After the Sculpture in the South exhibit on 22 May, I will drive down to Florida to visit family before hopping onto Interstate 10 to head west back to Texas.

########################################
Web Class in June:

Although it is too early to post details, I will be teaching a class, "How to Create Your Own Web Site" in June either in Austin, Texas, or in my Cedar Creek studio. If you are interested in this class, please let me know your preference: the weekend of June 17th or June 24th.
