I wanted to mention that I am part of an exhibition that opened this weekend at the Museum of Danish America in Elk Horn, Iowa. My oil painting of “Dybbøl Molle” is part of the main exhibit called “Schleswig-Holstein: Turmoil on the Danish-German Border”.
The Exhibition opened February 22 and will run through September 1, 2014. It will then travel to the German American Heritage Museum Center from September 27 through December 31, 2014.
My painting of the Dybbøl windmill was created to honor all those who died at the Battle of Dybbøl in 1864 as well as my wife’s great, great grandfather who died defending Denmark. The windmill is a symbol of Danish pride. If you are in Iowa over the next few months please stop by to view this historical exhibition.
Here is a link to the Museum...
Thanks for all your support.

My art is part of a group show that opens this Friday, February 7 at the Sweatshop Gallery in Benson, Nebraska. The show is titled “Brass Tax –A Screen Print Show” and is curated by the amazing Pat Oakes.

If you are in Benson for this first Friday of February, please come by and see the new work of Adam Findley, Eric Nyffeler, Michael Neelsun, Ben Pavlicek, Matt Carlson, Ben McQuillan, and many more great local artists.
Here is a picture of my silkscreen piece on brushed metal called “Tanks For Nothing”. The piece was inspired from the Tiananmen Square Protests of 1989. I was senior in high school at the time of the incident and I still remember how powerful the image of the one student against a row of tanks looked. It was haunting and inspiring to me.
