Print Release…

Due to the excitement around this painting last month, I have decided to release “The Conference” as a print. Like before, these will be fine art quality giclee prints on acid-free 100% cotton rag paper, numbered, signed and limited to just twenty prints. Please go to the Prints page for more information about “The Conference” prints.

The Robin, such a perfect bird for April, is the star of this painting “Spring Harbingers“.  I took the reference photo for this piece while sitting in the truck after finishing my weekly shopping.  In addition to the robin, the quintessential harbinger of spring, there is also those leaf buds popping open in the warm spring temperatures. Please go to the Originals page for more information about “Spring Harbingers“. Thanks!

Got the Proof(s)

I now have the artist’s proof prints for both paintings, “Winter Cardinal” and “On Alert”.  I’m amazed at how good they look.  The printers have done a really good job.  I’ll have both of the proofs at the meet and greet this Sunday morning.  If you can get dug out and have a mind to, stop on by the Unitarian Church on 1800 Bell Ave, Des Moines between 10:15 and 11:00 and take a look.  Hope to see you there!

The Office Manager is NOT pleased. They say that building a website is much easier now than it used to be and I believe them. However, it is difficult enough for this caveman in blue jeans. Hopefully, soon, I’ll work out why I can’t get PayPal to bless my business with their buttons and then we’ll be ready for bidness.–WBA

Welcome!

Welcome!

Welcome to my artist’s page! Thanks for stopping by. This blog is a connection between me (the humble artist in his lonely garret) and you (the rest of the world). I will post to this blog at least once a week, here you will see works in progress, upcoming shows, new paintings or prints for sale, and happenings around the studio. Sometimes I might wax eloquent on art, though probably not often; I’m really not that kind of artist. Feel…
