With another painting moving from the on-hold position to the sold position, this weekends opening is considered sold out. I could not be more happy or humbled. Current inventory of my work at Acosta-Strong is obviously low right now, but there are plenty of other artists who’s work you need to get a hold of. Summer is just around the corner and things are about to move pretty fast. Thank you to all who attended and an extra special thank you to collectors. Time to get to work.

Here is a fun little article about a poster I recently designed for Santa Fe’s De Vargas Street House. Sean Michael Chavez often finds himself with a foot in two worlds. From his work as a fine art painter and as a graphic designer, he’s finding an appreciative audience everywhere he steps. At the Oldest House Indian Shop, Chavez’s Oldest House poster is a new favorite. The vintage-style image reflecting the traditional travel posters of the 1930s and ’40s was created by Chavez..

It is my pleasure to announce that I have a couple of paintings in the Ghostwolf 2018 WILD! exhibition opening tomorrow May 19.

Come say “Hi” and join the gallery for a fun-filled day including art, poetry, and visits from wild educational animals from local rescues.

Last night I dreamed I was a mostly naked Indian weraring nothing but a pair of white Adidas shoes. My hair was long and straight as a board. It tickled my butt cheeks as I walked around like everything was normal. Today, I am wearing those same white tennis shoes in honor of the naked Indian that walks inside me.
