Book Release Party

Some time ago I posted the exciting news that my painting "Clay" was selected for inclusion in Manifest Gallery's International Painting Annual Vol. 2

INPA 2 has now been published and the Book Release Party is this weekend!

Out of 1310 paintings submitted from 452 artists, only 118 works were selected.  I am honored to be one of the 72 artists represented in this amazing publication.

Anyone living in or near Cincinnati stop by the gallery for what I hear is quite a fun event!

Thank you Manifest!!

the big and small of it

On the BIG easel today ...
I have been making lots of progress on this painting, I just haven't been posting about it.
It seems my page of in-progress pictures (On my Easel) takes FORever to load because of all the photos so I stopped updating, but ....
only two and a half heads to go!

On the Little easel today ...
that is a lemon
on a bow
on top of a doll head

and Yes,
I wrote
Loser Baby
because I was listening to Pandora while painting and Beck's song "Loser" seemed a perfect potential painting title.
Much more direct then I usually go for ...
I was planning on the less obvious title "Lemon"

humm ... we'll see
thanks for tuning in :)

I feel a spell of yellow comin' on ...

which made me wonder...
is the phrase "spell coming on" widely known or is this a Southern thing?

I can tell I'm about to get really obsessed with (fill in the blank)

in my case yella :)
