On the road again

In May, you can find my work at ArtBirmingham, in Shain Park, Birmingham, MI. Other shows include the Webster Art Fair near St. Louis in June, and a new spot in the Ann Arbor Summer Art Fair in July.

Keep tabs on my upcoming shows...

Some new posts in a new blog

Read about Life As An Itinerant Artist, in the new and improved blog! Some thoughts on recent shows, and a peek into the backstory of a traveling photographer. I just got back from three weeks in South Dakota and Wyoming, and will have some new images to share with you. Read more...

News and special offers

I send out newsletters and links to new work periodically. If you'd like to be on the list, please add your information here. We can meet up on Facebook (parkerparker) and Twitter (@dakkid), too.

Thank you for being a part of my community and for the friendships new and continued throughout the year.

The Garden Gate

The Garden Gate

This stone wall and pathway led to Wade's Plantation on Middle Caicos, in the Turks & Caicos. A little far afield from my usual Western landscapes, it nonethless illustrates a way of life gone by. Hard to get to, the site has a number of historical buildings in an advanced stage of decay.

The Right Word

The Right Word

In an earlier life as an art director, I loved creating slice of life vignettes for our clients. Designing the lighting, creating the story and finding the props to make it all come together was all part of the game.

The Right Word is one of a new series illustrating avocations and aspirations. We all have interests aside from our work, although sometimes our work is tied to our hobbies. If you have a special interest or vocation, ask me how I can help YOU tell your story, with custom imagery, framing, or book design.

Watch for more at a show near you!
