hope your summer has been treating you well. I have been so busy creating new work. Mostly additions to my recent exhibition, “Crown”, which was lovely to see those in attendance by the way… What a welcoming for my first solo show in Chicago! I have been making a more consistent body of work through these exhibitions, which is good for galleries, and will be submitting proposals by the end of the year. Wish me luck!
So, let’s get to the meat of this email. I have another show with some new drawings and paintings, which features selections from, and new additions to the recent exhibition, Crown. So if you liked that exhibition you won’t want to miss this!

Wow, I disappeared from the face of the planet for a while… Hope you haven’t forgotten about me! Some of you may not know that I re-located to Chicago. It was a needed change, and I hope to grow more in my disciplines and make broader connections here. Thanks to all who helped with my success in Champaign. Greatly appreciated!
I have a new FaceBook page: www.facebook.com/JMBPortfolio
Please pay a visit and like the page, and you will receive up to date information on new works, in-progress bits, exhibit information, and other general musings on your FB feed. Note, you will still see changes here as I rev it up a bit in the city…
Hope everyone had a great holiday season, and Happy New year!
