The Voyage of the Manticore

The Sinking of the Bafflethwaite
Acrylic on Canvas
20” x 16”

I'm happy to announce that my new show, The Voyage of the Manticore, will be hanging next month at Joe Bar in Seattle's Capital Hill.

The Voyage of the Manticore chronicles the adventures of a fictitious 19th century schooner. The series takes a tongue-in-cheek look at the romantic exploits of the great Age of Sail. From the melodramatic to the absurd, each vignette illuminates a brief moment in the untold story of the Manticore. Based on the schooner Chasseur, a historic blockade runner, the Manticore is a 14-gun Baltimore Clipper typical of the early 1800’s. Inspired by 19th century maritime art, the paintings draw from both vintage and contemporary sources to tell a story that is equal parts tall-tale and satire.

Come down on for the opening reception.

All Apologies...

I've been up to my eyeballs in work and drama, so the posts have been lacking. I assure you, dear reader, that the dam is about to break, and I'll be filling this site with new work. But not just yet...
