Small Works & Ceres Artists

"While our bodies have emerged from the forest, our souls remain tangled in flora, battling the beasts we created" 
-Chelsea Greene Lewyta, Winter 2010

The Ceres show is less than 3 weeks away. Take a peek of what I'm working on for it.

First finished drawing for the bunny portraits. There will be a total of 6. To be painted.

Commissioned mini triptych, 9 x 5" Drawing to be painted.

You can see the panels I'm using here. I started on watercolor paper, but decided I wanted to use oil to finish, so switched to cotton rag (drawing above is on). The portrait seen here may be scrapped. I found the rabbit canvases at Pearl Paint on Canal Street and had to get them. The rabbit has been a key symbol in my work for years, I've been using them a lot recently. February 3rd marks the new year of the rabbit and it's my year.

Why so small? I'm traveling for the Holiday, I'll need to take some work with me. I'm also working on the new 40x30", drawing in previous post. I'd like to do an additional medium sized piece as well, but time will surely run out.

I'd like to introduce you to a few of the featured artists for the upcoming show:

The New American Art Show: The Best New Contemporary Art of our time

Fishy Update

Something fishy is going on. A moment ago it said my blog had been removed, got to some page about suspicious activity, changed my password, then it was all better. If you know what that might mean, let me know. I had an issue with someone spamming my blog with porn links a few months ago. Why do people put so much effort into causing grief for others?

The drawing for the 2nd 40"x30" scanned and given a little color.

The shows went very well. I sold at Beast, The Marketplace, and The Contrast Art show. More shows are being planned now. The next one is in Chelsea, and I'm over the moon excited. It's December 9th at the Ceres Gallery. I'll post more details about it closer to the date.
I've been traveling, then got quite ill, had to replace both my tablet and my computer. I now have a 27" imac, it's a beautiful piece of machinery. Ha, now that I'm oil painting, I get a nice computer. I still need it for my illustration jobs though. A bigger studio is gonna have to wait...
I have 4 new paintings, but they are not in my studio. Before the opening in Chelsea I will spend whatever needs to get spent to have my work photographed properly for a website update. It's frustrating that I don't have my new paintings accessible online.
