Project Tours

Since 2000, I've carried out an ongoing series of art tours on three geographic scales: national, regional, and - increasingly - local.

Averaging about one month per year on the road, I've so far made 140 stops in 38 states and done over 600 small-panel paintings of the varied American landscape.

If you are interested in being a host or arranging an Itinerant Artist Project tour, exhibit, or presentation in your neck of the woods, please contact me. Also check the web pages that discuss hosting and presentations.
