Just finished my painting for the Mark Murphy group show at Art Basel, coming up in December. So I thought I'd share the rough sketch I did before I started painting. I should have a jpeg of the final piece later this week, but I'm a little excited about how fast I did this one. 2 weeks for an 18" x 18" painting is not bad :)
I'll have the painting and a more polished, not-on-tracing-paper drawing for sale at that show. If you are interested, please contact email@example.com
My facebook friends already heard about this little moment so I'll share it here-- Mark Murphy came to speak at Otis when I was in my sophomore year, and I've wanted to work with him ever since, so I really can't believe my little dream has come true so fast! I feel truly honored, so thanks Mark for inviting me into this show :)
Now I'm off to bed, but next week..NY, NY! We will be releasing a very limited and huge print of my 3'x4' piece on Saturday November 7th-- more info soon on that, but for you NY locals I will be at a live print release/signing on that day from 12 to 3pm at the gallery. Check out the following flyer for the address and all the venue info:
"Spirit Gatherer" 7" x 7" Acrylic on wood. Inquiries here: firstname.lastname@example.org
This is the second piece I will have at the New York show. As I said in the drawings post, this one was inspired by Mariee Sioux's Native American imagery, and I had a lot of fun weaving all the little details in the small space available on the panel. Working so big lately gives me a new respect for the challenge of little pieces! I'll miss doing them.
Time constraints = this one and the 3'x4' will be the only ones in this show for me. For those of you who are local, mark your calendars for the opening: Saturday November 7th, 7-11pm. We will be in the Lower East Side, exact location details will be available here as soon as I get them. Hope to meet some of you there! :)
Update on the 3'x4' piece image: Been under-the-weather this weekend, so I'm a bit behind. But I have a whole load of process pictures that I'm trying to get together to post with the final image all in one entry. If it takes too long to do that, maybe I'll post the final with some details shots and later compile the process pictures separately. I want to share it with you already! ^_^
Lovely rainy day today...hopefully it will rain a little more for me tonight before it leaves us dry again.
