For the months of March and April I had two wonderful pieces on display at Lincoln Plaza in downtown Dallas.
The first piece called “Silent Winds” is a shot I took while touring various back roads close to Wichita Falls. The wind mill was lying dormant as if it was awaiting the winds to return and awaken it before the rust and decay took it over. The colorful fields and blue sky completed the picture as small trace of clouds lingered in the distance. I framed it in a Honey Oak wooden frame which matches the orange colors of the wind mill.
“Aureate Beauty” is the next piece. I took this shot at the Botanical Gardens in Ft. Worth. The trees were just in the beginning to bloom and the light was just right. The depth of the piece is what I love most about this piece. There are layers up on layers of branches and it framed in a floating Prestige Gold frame which turned out gorgeous. This is by far one of my favorite pieces to date.

I hope everyone has had a wonderful start to the New Year! I have a couple of new pieces of my art work on exhibit in downtown Dallas at Lincoln Plaza. They are a step up from my previous pieces and now include beautiful frames and mats.
The addition of frames required me to invest in some beautiful wooden easels that would handle the weight of the artwork while adding to the professional look and feel of them on exhibit. If you are down downtown please take a few minutes to stop by and view them.
Please visit R-idiom.com to view the pieces on display.

Thursday marked the end of my art exhibit. It was a great success and I am still a bit over whelmed by the great response I received. All parties involved from me, to the property management team, to the tenants all seemed to benefit from the event, which went above and beyond our best expectations. I was able to make some new clients and sell 8 out of my 16 pieces with a few people still on the fence, so maybe more.
I would like to congratulate Mr. Hooper for being winner of the drawing for the “Radiant Arts” piece I gave away. I also donated the “Texas Blizzard” piece to the property management team as a thank you for all of the help they gave me. It should look nice in their office.
I would also like to thank everyone that took the time to come visit the exhibit. It truly means the world to me.
Because the exhibit was such a success, I have worked out a deal with the building to exhibit two pieces on a continuous basis. The pieces will be in the main lobby and I will rotate them out monthly. This will change up the scenery for the tenants and allow my new art pieces to be seen. I am very excited about this and it is a great opportunity to further expose my art work to the public.
Well I guess that is it for now and it is time for me to head back to the grind stone. I will keep you all apprised of when my next exhibit is, hopefully it will be real soon!

Well we are two weeks into the exhibit and a day from Thanksgiving. All I can say is that I have a lot to be thankful for. The support of my wife, family, friends and clients has been a bit overwhelming during this event and the months leading up to it. Words cannot express my gratefulness to each and every one of you.
The response to my artwork has been quite surreal and very rewarding. Leading up to the exhibit I ran the gauntlet of doubts and uncertainty about the pieces I chose and whether anyone would like them. Those concerns have been extinguished with the comments I have received and by the sale of 3 pieces so far. I would like to thank those clients (names withheld due to some pieces being secret Christmas gifts) for their purchases of my artwork, I am truly honored that you loved my work enough to own it.
This past weekend I moved a couple of pieces around to make room for the building’s Christmas stuff and to change things up. Lighting in the building has been a challenge so I finally got my centerpiece in a great spot so its true colors can shine.
I hope all of you have a safe and Happy Thanksgiving!

I just wanted to give everyone an update on how my art exhibit is going after its first week.
I have nothing but good news to report. The building management couldn’t be more pleased with the responses they have received from their tenants and I have picked up a number of new clients along with selling a few pieces.
If you have not had a chance to make it out, I really hope you can and I will be back next week with another update.

Hi everyone, I have some exciting news! Starting Monday, November 7 through Wednesday, December 7, a number of my pieces will be on display throughout the first and second floor lobbies of the Lincoln Plaza building in downtown Dallas.
On December 8th the building will be holding its annual tenant Christmas party. We are going to hold a drawing at the party and I’m donating one of the pieces on display to award to the winner.
This project has been in the works for some time and I have put a lot of work in to it. It will be great exposure for my artwork and help develop new opportunities for future clients.
If you get a chance to make it downtown to view the art display, make sure you take a quick elevator ride to the 35th floor so you can also see the artwork I created for the law firm, Fisher & Phillips LLP located in Suite 3550.
I am happy to provide a guided tour. Feel free to contact me and we can schedule a time to meet. The hours Lincoln Plaza is open to the public are:
Monday – Friday: 8am to 6pm
Saturday – Sunday: Closed*
*If you can only make it out on a Saturday or Sunday please contact me and I can schedule a private tour for you.
Located at: 500 North Akard Street | Dallas , TX 75201
