I love it when my clients contact me to let me know they purchased a painting which was resold on the secondary market. This particular painting I did when I lived in NYC and produced it in my Stanton Street Studio (1997-98) in the Lower East Side. Thanks Marsha and Amy for contacting me to let me know where one of my babies is now located. Enclosed is a photo they sent me.
I will be flying into Columbus Ohio for the “Art Fair for Life” event which will be held on November 1st. You can buy tickets by calling the Columbus AIDS Task Force 614-299-2437.
A percentage of the sales from this event will go to CATF.
There will be 50 artists participating in this event which have been hand selected by a committee to produce the best possible donations to such a great cause. I am honored and grateful to be able to participate. I will be flying from my home in Los Angeles for this one night event. This is the second “Art Fair for Life” event which precedes the spring Art for Life Art Auction to be held at the Columbus Museum of Art in 2008.
I will have a handful of paintings for sale along with two framed prints. Enclosed are the two prints which I will have for sale. The prints are “giclee” and are signed artist proof prints.
First print: Fuzzy Twin Dinosaurs, 20″x24″, Giclee Print
Second Print: Big Head with Chocolate Eyes, 20″x24″, Giclee Print
*Both prints will be framed and signed in ink – labeled “Artist Proof”.
I had a chance to hang out with my family in Nashville where I worked on some of the paintings for my upcoming exhibit in New York City. The photo enclosed is myself with my little (bigger) brother, and my sister Chris, both who live in Nashville. Chris is an interior designer and Matt is the CEO of a non profit website bigheartdesign.com, a business that helps build websites for non profit organizations.
Every once and a while I like to look at old paintings of mine which make me feel good. Today I felt like viewing “Warrior Head” from the year 1997, painted in Columbus Ohio. It was a large canvas and I did it in my First Ave. studio in (suburb) Grandview. Warrior Head ended up in the Columbus Dispatch as a simple public interest photo.
I wanted to confirm to my East Coast clients and friends that I will be exhibiting new paintings in November, 2007 at George Billis Gallery in New York City. George Billis is the exclusive representitive for my art and has been since 1999.
As I complete the new paintings I will post them here on my blog. The opening reception will be on November 8th, 2007. The show runs from November 6th thru December 8th.
