As an artist I often feel compelled to make work. This year I created s body of work called “Apocalyptic Bloom”. They weren’t paintings the the galleries representing me wanted. It is not artwork that my average collector would be into. Still I took this side road that represented a large part of 2019. I will always follow my artistic curiosities and interests.
This painting is on display at the RiverSea Gallery in Astoria, Oregon. A new gallery to represent me since I started the journey.
I finally captured a proper photo of this painting. I am starting the process of sorting through my work in preparation for my next solo exhibit. The show opens July 13th at McVarish Gallery in Astoria, Oregon.
It is almost June now so I am really on deadline for the July show. Yesterday I shipped off the last of my commissions. I still need to get work to a couple galleries in the next month besides my personal show so I am going to be painting constantly! Honestly I am not complaining, I am thrilled! Doing what I truly love after 25 years working on digital art, I am so fortunate. On a long weekend dedicated to the memory of soldiers that sacrificed everything, my life is so ridiculously easy.
