  • Freedom Plan is Working!

    The grand plan — to build up an inventory of finished crows/ravens to free up an hour or two of studio time each day to make whatever I want to make — is working! Crow orders help provide a good ba$e, allowing me freedom to experiment with mixed media sculpture.     It continues to amaze me…


  • Where am I?

    I miss me! About a year ago, Jackie and I decided to remodel our 1950’s ranch house. We got bids. They were outrageously astronomical! Several years’ worth of income! So I talked my artist self into going on sabbatical for a year so I could use my one and only corporeal body to do the remodeling myself, with the…


  • Idyllic Summer Setting…


  • Anna 1

    Anna 1

      “Anna 1” acrylic on 12 x 16 panel, using as reference a photo I took last spring. Thanks Anna!            


  • Group Portrait of Twelve

    Portrait of twelve relatives commissioned by a local couple, B&L. Acrylic on panel, 20 x 32 inches. Reference provided was actually a “photoshopped” composite of three different photos taken at different times and places. Thanks B&L! The portrait will be framed and hung on the brick wall behind.


  • June 14 Presentation — You’re Invited!!!

    I’ll be giving a one hour Portrait Painting demo and slide presentation at the Oregon Society of Artists, 2185 SW Park Place, Portland, on June 14 at 11 a.m. Free parking. I think they’ll have a potluck afterward. You don’t have to be an OSA member to attend. As far as I can remember, this…


  • Looks kinda like…

    And it appears I’m off on yet another side trip…indulging a recurring fascination with trying to do likenesses of people. I check in every ten or twenty years to see if I can do it yet. No clear idea of why, or what I’ll do with the results if I do…but it seems like a…

  • Salute to 2010!

    Thanks 2010! It’s been a pleasure living you!


  • ‘Obsession’ show write-up

    Nice write-up by Teri Sund about the ‘Obsession’ show: Steve Eichenberger refers to himself as ‘sculptor,’ yet that term seems limited in describing his artistic accomplishments. Perhaps the titles builder, engineer, architect and alchemist all contribute to the understanding of what is involved in the creation of each work of art. For Eichenberger, who works…


  • RiverSea show Nov 6, Mtn views, new Raven birth

    I’ll be in a three person show at RiverSea Gallery in Astoria, opening Nov 6 with a reception from 5 to 8. I took four of my large sculptures to be in the show. Jackie will have lots of work in it too. We’ll be interviewed on a local radio station, live, about the show…


  • Time Keeps on Slipping…Into the Future…

    Just completed our first full week of full production in our new studio spaces and it went very well! There are still many minor things I need/want to do — hang more shelves and lights, organize my own space now that I’ve organized everyone else’s, remove and replace the door so it opens out instead…


  • IT’S A BOY!

    I’ve birthed a new studio! At least that’s what it’s felt like…lots of PUSHING to get everything installed and ready for us and our assistants to work productively/efficiently at 5040 SE Milwaukie in Portland.


  • Newest piece

    SOLD You can’t tell in this photo, but this one is MUCH smaller than the one in the last post. “Gratitude 3”


  • BAM was a success!

    My first-ever show  — was a success! Thanks to the customers who supported me with purchases, I can now justify continuing to sculpt my self-expressive works! This is huge! This show was truly a career changer. I’m already planning to apply to more shows in 2011. Thanks, T., M. & H. for everything. Meanwhile, it’s…


  • July 20 update

    I added official photos of my newest pieces to the Portfolio section tonight, complete with dimensions and statements. Welcome to any new visitors just tuning in from BAM (Bellevue Arts Museum ArtsFair show)!


  • July 13 update

    things are coming together reasonably well for upcoming show, but so many things left to do that i may not post again till afterward.


  • “Aristophanes”

    I’ve decided what to name the larger of the two hare sculptures I’m working on: “Aristophanes” Big name for a big sculpture. He seems ‘aristocratic’ to me, which triggered the name. It is derived from the Greek words aristos, meaning ‘best,’ and phanes, meaning ‘appearing.’ (My choice has nothing to do with the 5th century B.C.E.…


  • A World of Possibilities Awaits…

    Tomorrow I’ll tell you about giant rabbit ears. (This was my very first test post during the “Under Construction” phase: two solid days of desk jockeying. It was nice having Egon to keep me company, so I’m keeping this post for nostalgic reasons.)
