Subject to Change
I haven’t been around much for few weeks, but I have a pretty good excuse. I’ve been spending all my time painting for my show (the opening reception is Saturday), and save for a few final details - varnish, hardware, cards, catalog - I’m just about ready! I’m showing 15 paintings in all, and I must say that I’m happy with each one.
Focusing on a specific goal – in this case my first solo show – has reaffirmed the pure joy I feel when I immerse myself in creating art, and has also allowed me to experience the magic that happens when I have a plan and a concept for a body of work. I found working in a series to be empowering and synergistic… each new piece seemed to grow out of the one before, and I still have so many “unborn” paintings waiting their turn! And what’s even cooler is that I could feel when it was time to move in another direction, so I am actually showing two mini-series –one figurative and the other landscapes. The show is called Subject to Change, an apt title in so many ways.
My next projects include finally getting my website up and running and investigating more opportunities for showing and selling my work. I’m also looking forward to summer and uninterrupted art time… time to create those imagined paintings, take workshops with three very different artists and explore new techniques… I can’t wait!
My show runs from May 25 through June 24, with the opening reception on Saturday, May 26 from 6 to 9 p.m. Stop by if you're in the neighborhood! More info here.
