More Paper Cutouts

I'm yet to add the newer pieces to the site. I'm actually getting them matted but prior to that step, I'm completing several 15x11 inch paper cutouts.  In the meantime, I'm somewhat frantic in getting all of what I need in order to feel comfortable going into my next shows. Today, however, is the Hapeville Artwalk and Exhibition. I need to clean up this little mess I made and prepare for it.

Atlanta Show, Canvas Prints & Organization

The year is drawing to a close. 2019 has been, not as productive as I'd like, but productive nonetheless. Since my focus word for the coming year is organization,  I'm going to take these last weeks of the year to prepare and go into 2020 with a good start on it. I'm under no illusions about it. Anymore. 3 facts I'm clear on: It's a daily ritual that will demand my attention.  I have to do it, whether I want to or not.  Each day needs to have a plan. My mind is already in the direction of gathering paperwork...

Engraved Painting

This new rendition of The Cornerstone is not a departure from the sculpted layered wood works. It's an addition that will merge and come together cohesively once everything's in place. As I engraved this small study, I had every intention of it being painted with thin, flat color tones but it took a different turn than expected. At this stage, as early as it is, I'm not certain how to create the effects I was initially going for. I'll deliberate and see how it proceeds on the next round.  On another note, I'm behind on producing the magazine and the...

Cards and Prints Available

It's been a somewhat busy day. I have new greeting cards and canvas prints coming in next week. which the prepping of them was the administrative part of my afternoon. The prints are small (11 x 14) and I like the images I chose, which are from original paintings I did so long ago. Something like 10 or more years. The original for the card was a mixed media piece of watercolor and graphite wash. The card itself, while inspirational from the outside, is blank inside, for the user to create their own message. I will be printing more cards...

Bluff Park Art Show

Good Friday, because all Fridays are, where I'm concerned. Time is definitely winding down to October 5th. In advertising for the Bluff Park Art Show, I noticed one of my pieces was featured.  Of late, I've been researching and looking at the business side of art, re-acquainting myself with specific artists by watching a lot of YouTube videos and learning, learning and learning some more.   I'm also nearing the video shoot for my work and it's turning out to be interesting, as things can go sometimes but I gotta keep on truckin'.
