First show ever

Sandpiper Art Gallery "Festival", Polson, Montana, August, 2008

What is your website?


What are the best things about art fairs

The crowds, the other artists, the general atmosphere

Best show ever and why

The first, as it proved I could do it!

Worst show ever and why

The most recent, on the shore of western Montana's Flathead Lake. On the first day, high winds off the lake tore everything apart. After a long night restoring/re-setting up our exhibit, the second day resulted in few visitors and minimal sales.

What is one fun fact about yourself?

I capture the images, produce the prints, do the framing. My favorite part is being outside behind the camera. My wife arranges our travel, does everything but the "art" part. She's amazing!
