It is finished

I finished the 30x 40 I was working on. As you can see it has a free flowing composition. Looking back I can see how this piece helped me express the positive side to my life. It is like I am getting ready to play out the music that is my future. There is an chair waiting to be filled. It is a casual chair as not to take it all to serious. I have had far to much of serious things in my life lately. It is now time to celebrate life. Over looking the city for all to see and hear the symphony of my life, good or bad.

Exciting news

I have exciting news. I was contacted an asked to be a featured artist in the art walk Guthrie at Gallery Grazioso, 301 West Oklahoma Downtown Guthrie, OK. On March 29th. Next I was contacted by the people that put on this bi-annual event and asked to be used on the post card.
In other news don't forget I will be showing at the AKA gallery in The Paseo district here in Oklahoma City. There "1st Friday" art walk is February 7th. Don't miss out!
Now in the studio I will just be finishing up another 30x40 today. This piece feels great. I really like the way it flows throughout the canvas. The composition is something I have been wanting to do for some time. I'm excited to see it come to a finish today.

Double time!

Well after an unscedualed, extended, brake I'm back to painting. I have two pieces going right now. I have set up a 30"x40" in the guarge and a 24"x24" in the livingroom. The 30"x40" reflects my Irish haratege as it has an Irish country side out side the window. The other has a more tuscan feel to it. Both of them are in a good place right now. I stuglred with them both a points, but now I'm past that. I feel as though I have a lot of catching up to do. This was sposed to be my productive time of year untill all went arey. Now I feel I have at least my art back on track. We'll see...

Pluging away

Well #18 has been approved and is almost dry and ready to ship. I'm also pluging away at some volare pieces for a big commision due soon. Trying to keep busy. It's a little strange getting used to painting in my house again after working in a studio for so long. It comming back tough.
On a pesonal note life is slowly getting into a resemblence of normality. (is normality a word?) Anyway I'm okay. Thanks for your consern.

Well after a few deep breaths and a lot of sleep I'm back at it. I never thought I wouldn't feel like painting but it seemed like the last thing on my mind the last couple weeks. Now it's a new day, and I have to plug on. It's time to paint!

Clearing the air

If you didn't notice this blog has been kinda a downer so far. There is a reason for that. My personal life has been a ride lately. You see me and my wife of 7 years have split up. I don't like to put pesonal things out there like this but it helps to explain the negative vibe lately. Well to state a saying that is over used lately. "It is what it is." Things will get better...
