The Lightopia Dog "Luce"

Kenneth the owner of Lightopia in Laguna Beach asked me to paint a portrait of his beloved Luce. I was so excited to get started and wanted to incorporate his love for lighting. I presented my work at lightopias unique event "Luce's pet adoption and summer sample sale." Three local animal foundations were onsite; the Laguna Beach Animal HospitalAnimal Crackers Pet Rescue and the Green Dog Foundation. What a fantastic day dogs were adopted and luce's painting was a huge hit. I couldn’t believe how Luce responded, he wouldn't stop staring at the painting and was acting like he had just received the biggest toy ever. Go see Luce in person! His portrait is on display on one of the walls in the store.

Philharmonic House of Design

I was asked to supply artwork for the 58 foot long hallway at the 2012 Philharmonic House of Design with California Homes Magazine. I completed three paintings within seven days to make the grand opening in time. I titled this art installation "The Expressions of Life", and chose each subject because of their interesting life story. Each person represents a different generation, and the raw emotion in their faces reflect their self written bios. You can visit the installation through May 20th 2012. Click here for more information.

 

 

I also painted three paintings for the Powder Bathroom. Two abstracts with gold frames and a very regal chocolate lab as a king!

Orange County Dream Home 2012

This year two of my paintings were featured in the kitchen and dining area of the 2012 Dream Home of Orange County. My artwork received much praise for the unique subject matter, life sized Big Foots were painted on plexi for a modern whimsical look.
