Newest painting, raku firing, & other events!

I had a very productive week, and finished this painting while at Interiors & Imports painting on location. I'll be there this Friday and Saturday again, so be sure to stop in!

Monday I hosted Kelly Landrum-Hammell's pottery class for a day of raku firing in my backyard. Kelly came and set up the kilns on Sunday, and we began firing at 8am the next morning and didn't finish until 10pm. 14 kiln loads of raku! Here's a photo of Kelly transfering a red hot pot from the kiln to the reduction can...

more photos from the raku class can be seen posted in this online album



Also donated two paintings to the local Habitat for Humanity this morning.



One painting is for the auction fundraiser on November 20th in Slidell, and the other painting will be given to a new Habitat homeowner. Habitat has helped hundreds of families become homeowners in this region, and I'm proud to give a donation to the auction and an extra painting that will go directly to one of the hardworking and deserving families that Habitat serves.


I drove to Biloxi last week and had a wonderful time meeting the great folks at Negrotto's Gallery! Negrotto's is now carrying a selection of my seascapes and abstract paintings, you can check them out online here or visit them at 2645 Executive Place in Biloxi, behind Edgewater Mall. Be sure to tell them I sent you!
