Climbing Devil’s Tower

TowerWhen I’m not running the gallery, consulting, or working on a book, I love doing stuff that spikes the adrenaline–such as climbing. Devil’s Tower is my highest climb. Couldn’t have done it without Felipe top-roping. Put the smaller image in to convey the 900′ height. Of course for all you know I’m just sitting on top of a bluff in WY. Believe my sons and I will climb Zion in Aug.

Delivering Our 10th Check to Paseo Academy


Delivered another check to Paseo recently–our 10th such. Note smiles. Superintendent Green gave us an award. We’ve been underwriting the needs of the art dept since 2006, who wouldn’t have sufficient art supplies or books without our assistance. Same for Sumner Academy in KCK. Thanks again to all our clients who make this possible, and to Pamela Sahl, teacher par excellence. Many of these kids will be going to college who otherwise wouldn’t. Damn straight!

MJ Rigby Installation for Private Collector


Sometimes I still enjoy doing the installs. This couple–very kind people who live in suburban KC–commissioned this piece by MJ Rigby for their great room. Both are brilliant neurologists, quite literary, and very knowledgeable about art.


Sure we should have used scaffolding but ladders were much quicker–just don’t fall.


The finished piece. MJ based it–brilliantly–on a topo map of KC with various elements abstractly inserted that have special meaning to the client. For instance, note image of Oahu in upper left, where the client has a 2nd home. Hmm, I must visit them there someday.
