Ok, by a show of hands, who else feels overwhelmed?

Whew, it has been a busy summer but gratefully it has been productive. This summer I wanted to make strides when it came to my artwork and I certainly did. Doing 11 paintings in a month is no easy feat but I knocked that out of the park. A plus to that is I like each one I did. Sure I could have spent some more time on a couple of them, but I'm proud of each one of them!

Also I've participated in 3 exhibits (so far :-)) and I want to do more. I've been checking craigslist regularly since that's where I've found these 3 cool opportunities. However, these legitimate "Call for Artist" entries are becoming few and far between. Do you have any suggestions of other websites I should browse around for exhibit opportunities?

At the end of August, I'm going to swap out a painting that has been in Brooklyn for 2 months now. I'm working on a new piece similar to one that is currently displayed at Cosi's. I'm concurrently working on the Zodiac series. All 12 paintings for this probably won't be done by the time school starts at the end of August. During the semester I plan to go back to oils and my Four Questions series which has gained some interest so I want to at least finish the 2 that are half way done.

As always, I'll keep you posted. Thanks for reading and I'm available if you have questions or feedback.

Thanks to those who made it to the Cosi reception

Hi there,

Below you will find some of the pics taken at the Cosi exhibit reception. Thanks to ALL of you that attended. It was a great experience and I'm grateful that I was able to share it with you!

In case you haven't had a chance to check it out, I encourage you to do so (Cosi's on 44th Street and 3rd Avenue, NYC).

Another series of work is in progress and I'll keep you posted as each painting is completed. Thanks for your support!

Art Show at Cosi's Monday July 21st

Hi there,

After a fair amount of frustration, back and forth with persons at the store I was working with, several changed dates, and a lot of apologies to me from Cosi's, I'm finally pleased to say that the Cosi art showing is ON! I didn't want to send another email about it until the work actually went up...and on 7/14, it did.

Since Monday's doesn't seem too crazy at the store after 5, I would like you to join me there (44th and 3rd ave) next Monday from 5:30-8 (the store closes at 8). To read more about the showing and to RSVP click here:

Thanks to each of you for your concern and continued support. Hope to see you then!

The painting "Going or Coming" has been SOLD

No more needs to be said other than if you see a piece of mine that is of interest, name your piece now before my rates go up!

Cosi show has stalled

To my absolute surprise, I find out, the day the work is to go up, that the general manager of the Cosi's I was making arrangements with did not tell any of the other key players of the store what was about to go down. This incredible oversight on his part may lead to there being no show. It's still up in the air so I'll find out some time on Tuesday whether it's a go/no go. The final say will come from the district manager who had no idea what was going on. Paperwork has to be signed and he has to approve the work that would be hung (not the manager I was dealing with). That's all fine and dandy with me but I thought that those details were being taken cared of-obviously not. So we'll see. I hope it happens cause I've got some kick-booty work for the world (around Grand Central) to see. Wish me the best!!
