Where to Start?

My solo exhibition opened three weeks ago and will be up until October 12th. I was bit exhausted after the final push to get everything accomplished and, as a result, my blog has been silent since. But, the exciting news is that I have seventeen new works to share!

Today, I would like to share the first of my five sculptural pieces that are currently on display at Anthology Fine Art. Restriction is 3 x 4 feet in size and I constructed the form using wire, fiber, and wallpaper paste. Once dry, I applied several layers of primer before adding acrylic paint and drawings of the spine. This piece is highly textural which makes it a must-see in person!

Anthology Fine Art will be hosting another First Friday Reception a week from today on October 4th from 6-10pm.

The First Friday reception at Anthology Fine Art is starting in just a few hours. The opening reception last night was a success and, if you could not make it, I hope you can join me tonight! Champagne and snacks will be served.

In addition to the ten paintings I created a few weeks ago, I created four more new works to show.  I created two more paintings in the Found series.  These paintings are smaller than the other paintings in the series, but they are meant to be displayed together vertically.  I hope you will join me tomorrow evening to see these highly textured paintings in person!

I have been postponing the next post because I wanted to carve out some time to thoughtfully express myself, but it seems I am having trouble finding that time. So here is the major update: I resigned from my job as a high school art teacher in order to pursue my career as an artist full-time. I have received a mixture of responses from others, ranging from, “Good for you, I wish I could do something like that,” to “Yikes, that seems risky.” And my thoughts on the subject seem to be a mixture of both ends of the spectrum. I am looking forward to devoting all of my attention to my art career. I may become prosperous or I may fail, but at least I will have tried. I want to live without regret. As a teacher, I aimed to teach my students to set their sights high and take risks. Now, I am living by example and I am going to do everything in my power to make this a success.

I just returned from hanging an exhibition at The Brush and Comb on Tennyson Street in Denver. That show will run the month of June and the opening reception is this Friday, June 7th. So mark your calendar for the Tennyson Street First Friday Artwalk this Friday!

Aside from my further explorations of the Pieces series (which I promise I will get back to posting), I created about fifteen new works for this exhibition. Above is an image of one of these new works which has already sold!
