Upcoming shows

Hey guys,

I'll be posting more art in the upcoming week or so but until then I wanted to share some info about the next exhibitions I have coming up soon.

I'll also be releasing some prints with Spoke art and Phone Booth Gallery, will post about them soon.

"Almost Blue"
Phone Booth Gallery
2533 East Broadway, Long Beach CA
Opens Feb 25th, with a reception from 7-10 pm

Here's a preview of the piece I'll have in the show, which we sold last week! It's a big mix of mostly lead pencil and coloured pencils, with added pastel/oils/iridescent mediums.

Picks of the Harvest 2012’

Exhibit on view March 3rd, 2012 through March 24th, 2012
Thinkspace Gallery
Los Angeles CA

Here's a small preview of the piece I sent:

Finally, this is a study I did recently from a vintage gypsy photo, was drawing it up as a tone study but also experimenting with mixing oils, pastel, iridescent paint and pencils. It has a lot more texture in life but unfortunately it gets flattened a lot by the scan, as the lights are iridescent and a little reflective.


  1. soothing my soul with these pieces, rod.

  2. More amazingness. I really love the texture of the paint, although I'm sure it looks much better on the wall than on my screen. I don't think I've ever committed myself to working on a piece for as long as you do, but its always inspiring to see. There's so much to look at in your pieces!

  3. I'm speechless with "almost blue".... really.

  4. Thanks a lot everyone, I really appreciate the kind words!

  5. Awesome stuff as always Rod.

  8. I'm so happy I live near LA so I can see your work in person! :D Next weeek! I have the "Almost Blue" show card on my wall already. ;D

  9. That preview's really gorgeous. God damn you are getting good! Those iridescent paints are interesting. I haven't used them for any art yet, but I did use them to paint props. interesting look.
