Howdy. I'm being represented by a gallery here in Bisbee. The name of the gallery is 55 MAIN Gallery. It's a great gallery with lots of fantastic art. So, of course I'm very excited to have some of my works represented there. What does represented mean? That certain art will be sold solely through their gallery. It's sort of like me having a manager. Of course, I will also have the right to represent plenty of other art and dictate the prices, etc. In other words, it may be a step forward or upwards as far as my "career" as an artist, but really, it shouldn't change things that much. The bottom line is, that I'm still going to try and create the best art that I can regardless of who is or is not buying my art.
If all goes according to plan, Ginny and I will be moving to Arizona mid December. We are selling our house here in Bonners Ferry, ID and if all goes right, it should close on the 14th. We are moving to Bisbee, Arizona. Hopefully we'll be there before Xmas. I'll keep you all up to date. Wish up luck!
I'm accepting commissioned pieces for the holidays. I have two that I'm working on now but have time to get your commissioned painting done before Christmas if the project isn't too big. Too big would be an over-sized piece or something where the detail is so precise that I won't have time to finish it for you by Xmas. But feel free to ask. Here's my latest commissioned painting. Called JAZZED. 56 inches wide and 20 high.
Because of some unexpected medical bills, I'm marking down lots of my paintings that are for sale right here on my website. You can check out these sales right here Also free shipping here in the USA. Thanks!
I've now set up a store right on my website so you can purchase paintings directly from me and we can leave out the "middleman". And contact me about any of my art for sale and see if I'm open to offers. All shipping within the USA is free. I'll be adding more art very soon!
I just now realized that I had not created a gallery for paintings in 2016! So, I went ahead and started one and will add more images very soon. I apologize to you people out there that actually give a crap about what I do for art for neglecting my own site which some of you I can imagine stop by from time to time to see what I've been up to. Neglecting my own website is one thing that I've been neglecting. Ok, so I'll "snap to" and get this party of a website rolling again!
It has been a long time since my last post. I haven't been painting a whole lot these last couple of weeks. I feel that I first need to mix up some new colors. I have been offering and selling various prints. Contact me about having any of my works from my portfolio made into a print. Mainly from 2011 till now. Some examples are:
so, don't know if you have been following my saga of 2015. the one where i ruptured the quad tendon in my left leg. i was recovering quite well due to a lot of hard work on my part. anyway, let's cut to the chase. i fucking re-injured it while at a dog park in sandpoint, id AFTER i had just had my 3 month checkup with the orthopedic surgeon. AFTER he told me that it was healing so nicely. then i do something so incredibly stupid as to actually enter the dog park. just my dog and some purple-bearded dude with an iphone attached to his head. the dogs were getting ready to rumble. his being a pitbull scared me in that i thought it might actually kill my dog. somehow i got twisted and turned in just the right way to tear the tendon. it is worse this time around. i had the surgery on monday, may 4th. seemed to go ok EXCEPT i never ever thought i would have a full cast on my leg. and apparently it has to stay there for six weeks! so this makes life tough on both ginny and i. she's my caregiver again and feel horrible about that part. i have plenty of art supplies so i plan to get down to some painting.
Finally, after weeks of spending most of my time and energy recuperating from my leg injury, I have at least several new paintings for 2015 and have added them to my gallery. As I get better, I will be doing more paintings. Hopefully I can squeeze out something good inspired by my quad tendon rupture.
