Greetings from the Zen Crow Studio in Black Mountain, NC.
First, I would like to thank those of you who were able to attend my new Zen Crow Studio open house in March. I renewed connections with old friends and met new faces. It was so successful that I'm thinking of having another open studio in the Fall. Stay tuned.
I have been painting like an artist possessed with four new shows scheduled from June through September. These new shows are spread through three states so one might be near you. In Asheville, NC I have been asked by the Grovewood Gallery to exhibit my paintings in a two person show. Along with my Zen Nature paintings will be the incredible sculptures of Illinois sculptor, Clay Foster. Clay's work involves a Zen approach to incorporating stone and wood. The show should be amazing. Opening night reception for the Grovewood Gallery show is scheduled for May 31st
. Contact the gallery for specific times and information. The show itself will run an incredible 3 months, from June through August. I am hoping to have at least 24 paintings on exhibit. Of course all works will be available for purchase through the gallery.

During the month of July I will be exhibiting in a select group show at Greenleaf Gallery in Duck, NC. This small show of five artists will include 6 of my paintings. Although the gallery show will not have a formal opening, I will be in attendance during the first week of July. If you are visiting the beautiful beaches on the Outer Banks of North Carolina, please stop by.

Also on the Outer Banks you can also see and purchase my work, both original paintings and Giclee fine art prints, at Silver Bonsai gallery in Manteo, NC 'just down the road' from Duck. Silver Bonsai gallery is located near the famous Elizabethan gardens and they sell many of my Zen flower paintings and prints.

Well, that's some of the shows coming up. My July newsletter will feature even more information about my third large solo show in four years at Convergence Gallery in Santa Fe. The scheduled show is to run concurrent with the famous Indian Market in August. Also in the July newsletter will be information about my inclusion in a group show at Mill Brook Gallery in Concord, NH in the Fall.
