I recently attended the first Naples Quick Draw Event in Naples, Florida. This event was a fundraiser for Legal Aid Service, which provides legal assistance for those who cannot afford it, including veterans, domestic abuse victims and their children. 26 well-known and honored artists were invited to participate in this prestigious event. We managed to raise almost $30,000! I did 2 small 6x8 paintings which sold for $1750. Photos by Ralph Papa.
HUGE surprise! Found out I have a painting in the October/November issue of Plein Air Magazine. "Party Lights" is part of the Nocturnes section, page 30.
My painting, Sunrays, is featured in the Dramatic Lighting section of Plein Air Magazine. August issue, page 22.
I'll be part of the Hypoluxo Island Plein Air Exhibition at the Manalapan Island Library. 1330 Lands End Road on the Southern end of Hypoluxo Island. May 6th through July 13th.
Hypoluxo Island is best known for being the home of Winston Churchill. His home was located behind the library and he often painted outdoors.
Artist Ralph Papa made a fantastic video of our group painting.
These 2 paintings will be included in the "Unforgettable Forgotten Coast: Plein Air Remembers" exhibit.
Hurricane Michael hit the Florida Pan Handle in October of 2018 devastating much of the Forgotten Coast area. This exhibition benefits the recovery of the natural environment, the people, and the role of Plein Air in remembering what was lost.
May 3 – May 12, 2019, The Joe Center for the Arts, 201 Reid Avenue, Port St. Joe.
Reception the evening of May 9, 2019, at 6:30pm.
I'm honored to have won this year's Everglades day paint out. It was a rainy and cold morning but I managed to paint this little canvas. Thank you to everyone at Loxahatchee!
I was invited to paint with 4 other artists at the Norton Museum's grand re-opening after major renovations. Located in West Palm Beach, Florida, this museum is one of the best in Florida.
I would like to extend a very special thank you to The New Studio For The Visual Arts for putting together such a fantastic exhibition of my work.
Shawn had the honor of being part of the Boca Raton Museum of Art Faculty Show for the month of September, 2018. This was the first time his painting The Mentor was on public exhibition.
