If you are in the NYC vicinity this Thursday, May 3rd (show walls are at 1133 Ave of Americas : reception is at 6-8), I hope that you will stop by for my first solo show in NYC. Here is peak at a detail from one of my large (30x60) pieces called, "The Rest". Everything about this piece refers to a midpoint in life. Halfway between, reflecting on a bountiful life and looking forward at "the rest" of life.
The reception will be bountiful-lots of food and drink and expect a big crowd of art directors, gallery folks, artists, writers and scientists.
This piece was done primarily in liquid clays with pigment with a good deal of laying down pigments and scraping them away with razors.
Here is the tiger up close. I was really inspired by Waldon Ford's exhibit at the Brooklyn museum a few months ago. It was amazing to see the work up close-so many subtleties in content as well as detail in the painting.
Have a swirlin sunny Earth Day!
Here is this years Earth Day poster done for Diane Woolverton at the U.S. State Dept. A real dream job: great subject matter, lots of time, great gift for kids, okay money. She had been collecting my art from the Washington Post over the years so it pays off to do newspaper work for free advertising I guess.
I won't be around here much for a few days as I am heading off to New York City to deliver my art for a May 3rd show. We will be hanging it on the 23rd and 24th if you are in the mid town area : 1133 Ave of Americas or stop by the opening on May 3rd, would love to see you!
This is my first postage stamp and thanks to Nancy Stahl I was informed that it was being released as I saw her announcement on her home page (thanks Nancy). I think it has been about 2 years since I worked on the stamp-so that gives you a bit of perspective on just how laborious and slow this kind of assignment is to surface.
