New representation with Haynes Galleries

I am pleased to be now represented by Haynes Galleries. The gallery features many of the top contemporary realists as well as a smattering of 19th and 20th Century icons including John Singer Sargent, NC Wyeth, Norman Rockwell, and Yousuf Karsh. Two of my paintings will be traveling to the Maine location to hang with the show "The Portrait in American Realism".

The Nashville gallery is an impressive space located on the Music Row Roundabout. I highly recommend visiting soon. The current exhibition is a collection of Yousuf Karsh photographs.

"Refraction"is a part of an online contest through Brian Neher's blog. Voting is open to the public (go vote!)...and there really are a bunch of good paintings I'm up against.
