Wanted to write a quick update as to what I have been up to, artistically and whatnot. I feel funny being so brief and perfunctory after such a long absence, but in the end, this attitude is what keeps us from communicating to begin with. So... a brief post and an invitation for anyone out there to say 'hi' back!
- Giant Drawing - my first and foremost update - the Giant Drawing which was promised such a long time ago.
Epic Drawing, now Epic Drawing, as of Feb this year
- Ocean Painting Commission - I am happy to announce that a wonderful and exciting painting commission came out of my time working on the Epic Painting Project!
- Marshall Arts (wood art and outside sales) - and now, expressing a reason (excuse? haha) for my long absence online - the work I do alongside Jim as Marshall Arts!
In addition, we sell photography, and some of my oil paintings as well. The effort involves setting up 3 to 4 times a week in venues in Asheville and Hot Springs. The rest of the time goes into actually producing the art!! The above piece took over three days to produce, from start to finish. Multiply that by the approximately 90 pieces that we have on display at all times, and folks can see how much of my time and Jim's is spent in production mode! So... half the week producing wood pieces, half the week setting up to sell --- I hope folks can come to undestand how easy it is to fall off the radar. If anyone were interested in reading/experiencing more about this artistic modality, one can go to our facebook page, or to marshallcommunityarts.com (also not updated in a long time, oh dear!) You can also send me a message and I can add you to our mailing list - once a season I send a communique.
- Epic Painting Project - so far, I have any further developments regarding the project itself on hold. Next steps include seeking to photograph the work better, seeking a venue for exhibiting, etc.
