Please come and visit Todd and myself at the new Lon Michels Gallery, located at 1061 N. Palm Canyon in Palm Springs CA 608-206-2992. In this incredible space you will see Todd and myself painting, in an open working studio where you can see the magic happen right before your eyes! Throughout history especially in the 1800′s this was the type of gallery/studio folks were able to view the artists work and support the artist by purchasing directly by artist. Come and enjoy the art, the main reason we create is to share our vision and beauty with the world. The Lon Michels Gallery is going to be intimate (the smallest gallery with the largest paintings) we feel so blessed to be in an area with numerous other wonderful galleries, referred to as the uptown design district of Palm Springs. Please save the date Oct. 26th 2013 for our grand opening party!
Example of one of my many portraits “Portrait of Susee” Many of Susee’s favorite things have been incorporated in this portrait to reflect love and beauty that Susee has in her life, not to mention her exquisite beauty.

After traveling to Central America and exploring the Mayan culture with shaman and ordinary folks. Todd and myself were thrilled to learn not only was the world not ending but was moving toward a spiritual connective joining of all the people who are enlightened. This is life changing because all of us can come together, for the betterment of mankind today and everyday in the future. Through our art we try to explore through color and patterns a sense of healing and serenity. To help others though our art and make another smile and forget their troubles, we have accomplished what thousands of artists throughout history have done. Through passion and integrity we are here for the world to heal and feel love through paintings. The pain and suffering Todd and myself have gone through is a process to revelation, may you find this path in life as well. Winston Churchill ” Never,never,never give up!
