Our sincere thanks to everyone for the great feedback you have been sending to CJ. He loved working with Style 1900 to produce this very informative and engaging article and plans to write for them in the future. Many of you know that he is not short of ideas or opinions!

"Creating paintings and interiors that
fire the imagination, stir the deepest emotions, inspire the soul, and
offer new things to explore upon each viewing is the most gratifying and
satisfying thing I can do with my art. -CJ
As a Master
Artisan of the Roycroft Renaissance, I have the honor and distinction of
working to uphold an important part of America's artistic legacy, as well as
the responsibility to keep alive the spirit of art as manifested throughout the ages. It is a
rare opportunity and I see it as a great responsibility.

CJ's paintings are featured in three
exhibits this month
Caladan Gallery's "Elemental Spring"
The light changes, the air becomes sweet - a
breeze works its way through growth and the shoots of plants - the sun's
rays dance on the water and weave through shadow; All is an interplay
of elemental celebration. New growth is making its way through the soil
and Autumn's detrium. The
work selected for this exhibition is a mirror of this; the natural
beauty, the beginning and the hope.
Acrylic on Canvas
Hidden among an abstract conglomeration of root, sky, seed, and stream,
a lone purple flower finds life and blossoms towards the infinite sky.

Elemental Spring is a juried online exhibition with a fine art gallery. We appreciate the themes of the Caladan Gallery's shows. This is the first time CJ has participated in an online exhibition and we thought Elemental Spring was perfect theme for many of CJ's paintings -- especially "Purple Flower".

river bring life to a community? Artists explore their
