"SPOTLIGHT ON" Commissioned Projects

It's always a good idea to take a look back once in a while to see where you've been. It helps us understand how we got to where we are now and gives me a better understanding of how I have evolved as an artist. In the weeks ahead, I'll be featuring some of my signature projects over the past 34 years, the clients, designers and locations of many of these commissioned art works.
First off, the Spotlight is on Holman Aviation of Great Falls, Montana.

Holman Aviation is the General Aviation hub for North Central Montana and much more. You should go to their website and check them out at http://www.holmanaviation.com/index.html
In 2005 I was given the opportunity to create a collection of three original canvases for their interiors. These works feature major landmarks in the Great Falls area, including the Great Falls of the Missouri, Giant Springs and a study of a Bison overlooking the Sun River Valley.

 If your flying into Great Falls, or in the area, it's worth the time to check out their beautiful facility and this art on canvas. While your there, say hi to Cecelia at the front desk, she'll be happy to show you all the latest Gift Boxes of my Fine Art Note Cards that they have available. I'm happy to say that Holman Aviation is my primary retail outlet for my Note Card Collections in Great Falls.

I had a lot of fun on this project and the folks at Holman Aviation are terrific to work with, a Special Thanks to Dwight and crew.You can see more photos of my commissioned art works at my website,

Spokane Commission now on the easel!

I'm well underway with a commissioned painting for the offices of Spokane's Moloney + O'Neill, Corkery & Jones Benefits Inc. I'm pleased to say I've been given the opportunity to create an original painting featuring the subject matter of one of my favorite iconic scenes in Spokane, River Front Park, featuring the Radio Flyer slide, aka "Big Red Wagon", the Clock Tower, river bank and park. This piece will liven up an otherwise large blank wall in on the 7th Floor of their offices at 818 West Riverside.
As you can see from this photo, this wall needs something!  I'm excited to have been chosen to have my artwork in Moloney + O'Neill's interiors. We're looking forward to the unveiling of the piece in June. I'll share an update with the completion of this project.
Moloney + O'Neill has a long history of supporting the arts in Spokane, I'm thrilled to have my business join a long list of those who have benefited by that support.
A big thanks to the forward thinking of Mark Newbold and Moloney + O'Neill for this opportunity.

Hard at it, working on the Clock Towers details.
