The Journey Continues....

Across the Columbia
Spring and summer have proven to be quite busy for me. It feels good to sit down and update you on what's been going on.
I have been searching for a coastal gallery that would be a good fit and I am excited to let you know that I found one:
RiverSea Gallery in Astoria, Oregon.
RiverSea is a great gallery with a wonderful space and a broad mix of dynamic art. Jeannine, the Gallery Director, is very active in promoting the arts and the artists, and I am extremely proud to be a part of her team.
While Astoria is a destination town, it also possesses a salty, working class feel to it with lots of mood and texture. Which is right up my alley....
Having a coastal presence has been on my mind for sometime now and it feels great to see it become a reality.
Across the Columbia, is one of my pieces showing at RiverSea. And I will be present for their Second Saturday Art Walk, next Saturday, July 13th from 5-8pm. If you're in the area, stop by and say hi.
In upcoming weeks I will update you on other significant news.....


  1. Congratulations Michael,

    The world is your oyster. The more oysters you open the more pearls you will find.


    1. Thank you David! What a wonderful comment, and fitting for the post!

  2. Congrats on the new gallery representation Michael!! Sounds like a perfect fit. What a wonderful 'feel' and composition in "Across the Columbia". Love the depth in the clouds and in the structures. I"m sure the brush strokes are a delight to see in real life.

    1. Thank you for your thoughtful comment Nancy! It turned out to be one of my personal favorites and I am thrilled that you like it too. Thank you again!
