Beach Ball Moon, oil on canvas, 30 x 24 inches, 2007

I posted this piece (in one of its earlier states) in the late spring of last year - but deleted the image from this blog soon after. As it turned out, the background wasn't finished at the time. It's experienced a series of color states since then and is finally making a come back. In fact, it'll be one of 33 paintings to be installed next week at the Alice R. Rogers Gallery at St. John's University in Collegeville, Minnesota. The exhibition will run from September 26th to November 21st - and the opening reception will be September 28th from 1 - 4pm - with a gallery talk at 2pm.
