Dallas Art Fair

Dallas has an annual art fair that attracts galleries from around the U.S. and the world. Ro2 Art, my home gallery, has had a booth in it the last two years, and this time my work was included, since I joined them this year.

Below are photos I took while visiting the Fair. Some are my wall at the Ro2 booth and some are pieces that caught my attention. If I know the artist I've listed the names, if not I haven't. Apologies to anyone overlooked.

Here I am with the paintings...

...and here are the paintings without me.

This is "Elizabeth Barrett Browning", which I'm happy to report sold at the Fair.

I enjoyed seeing this piece, by one of my favorite painters, Wolf Kahn.

I don't know who did this, but I enjoyed the Velazquez reference.

This beautiful portrait is by an artist also unfortunately unknown to me. I should take better notes.

I loved this painting of hikers, "Walkers on Ladle Hill" by Benjamin Senior.

I don't know who did this, but I think I see a rooster in there.

Again, I don't know the artist, but I do like the painting.


Some small but amazing urban landscapes by Rod Penner.

I also liked the minimalist landscape paintings by Gregory Botts.

And finally, this unfortunately out of focus piece by Ro2 gallery mate Erica Stephens. My photography is often found wanting, but I wanted to included it anyway.

Thanks to Ro2 Art for including me in this year's Fair.

Busy days.

I haven't been here in awhile and part of that is because of many things have been happening. Here are some of them.

This piece is called "Hill Country Oriole" and it's acrylic on panel, 8 by 10 inches.

I painted it as a trade for this beautiful and amazing wooden bowl created by woodsman Danny Kamerath, former graphic designer and now worker in wood living in Kerrville, Texas.

I added the rock at Danny's suggestion to, as he put it, "complete the piece".

Below are a couple of other recent paintings. "Cool River", acrylic/canvas, 14 by 18 inches, is at Tracy Miller Gallery in Manitou Springs, Colorado.
Below it is "Jackrabbit Peak", acrylic/canvas, 24 by 12 inches. It's future is yet to be determined.

Finally, the Dallas Art Fair is happening this weekend. This link shows the work being shown in the booth of my new Dallas home gallery, Ro2 Art. I'll be reporting from the scene probably Saturday. When I'll write about it here is anybody's guess.
