“after 25 years of commercial photography studio in frankfurter and after more than 10 years experience with co_works artists in Germany, it is about time the rest of the world to explore. a 4 × 4 Atego seemed suitable, all the facebook artist friends living in the real, and to be taken in remote areas and possibly to work with you. more co_works, books, calendars, couple- and nude shootings, exhibitions are the projects for the coming years (translated from German using google translate)”
In the video I talk about the process and meaning behind a couple of my favorite paintings

I will be teaching two open level workshops at Art Unraveled in Arizona August 5th-7th. Register now, there are 4 spots left in each workshop.
If you have NOT taken a workshop with me before this is a great overview into my ideas and methods. If you have taken a workshop this is a wonderful way to get refreshed and motivated!
I focus on teaching students the value of creating using loose and free techniques. Breaking down boundaries and confined ideas about art, learning to move fluidly allowing an engaged experience rather than one removed by rules and ideas of steps to perfection. It’s better to make mistakes than stand around worrying about them. Some of the best things happen on accident. Learning to move forward with each step to focus on art being fun rather than stressful. To create free and expressive work we must have fun and feel free to take risks. This is what makes work resonate with passion.
I have one spot left in my advanced level workshop.
To take this class you should have a firm understanding of all the basic concepts of my teachings and should have taken a level 2 class or multiple level one classes.
location – 3022 E Burnside St, Portland, OR 97214 – my gallery and studio

ONE SPOT LEFT! First come, first served. I have decided on doing a smaller class size than usual to make sure everyone gets more individual attention and has the space they need so this workshop is limited to 7 students
Melissa Monroe and I have been painting together over the last year and she has created a large amount of amazing work.
Melissa will be having her first Solo show next week at Nebraska Gallery in Portland, OR (5001 NE 30th Ave, Portland, OR97211). The opening reception is from 6-9pm Thursday the 25th of JUNE. Melissa will be live painting during the show. Hope to see you there!
You are invited to view a brand new body of work by Jesse Reno in his working gallery space on June 13th, 2015 6-10 pm at True Measure Gallery- 3022 E Burnside Portland, OR 97214 and celebrate its one year anniversary. The event will showcase over 300 additional paintings. There will be music, food, drinks, and coloring books for the first 50 people that attend.
Jesse Reno’s newest works which will be highlighted at the show deal with the idea of fragments and connection. Feeling rather than knowing. Choosing instinct over logic to achieve desire rather than defined outcomes. The chaos of volcanos, the collapse of an avalanche, the weight of an anchor, the idea of buoyancy over balance. Some locks do not open with keys. A world where candy canes grow at the tops of mountains. Freedom comes from belief and choice. All things are connected.
