I am planning on four more posts to round off the year – a short one today, then one this Saturday to give an account of the opening at the Mingo Gallery on Friday. Then one next Thursday, and then a very special surprise for the final post of the year on the 30th.
I focused on more Mini Mandalas this week. I’m putting two groups of four in the Mingo Gallery to compliment the chair, the lamp and the larger canvas. It should make for a very bright and bold presentation, and I will have photos to share this Saturday.
The big group of 24″ x 24″ canvases also came in this week, so I was able to start on a couple of them, and will be slowly building my inventory back up in the coming weeks.
I have been talking about figurative studies for some time now, and tonight I took the first step in a very new part of my journey. It was a very humbling experience, but afterwards, I was energized and wanting more.
Damon Lehrer is a phenomenal painter, and he just recently established The Boston Figurative Art Center just a couple doors down from my studio. Now that the art markets are done for the year, I can focus on developing my work in a different area.
I won’t lie to you – it was very hard for me to commit and step out of my comfort zone, but I am glad that I did. Damon was very patient with me, and I feel like I am off to a very strong start. Just like everything else, it’s going to take some dedication and patience.
If you are local, and are interested in taking part, please contact the center via the website. For all of my overseas friends, I encourage you to check out Damon’s site, and you will understand why I am very excited about this new venture.
So, a very short post today. The big event is coming this Friday at the Mingo Gallery, I will be back on Saturday to fill you in. Until then, I hope everyone is having a joyous holiday season!
Take care, all!
