gesso. sand. gesso. sand. gesso . . .

The show at Graphite Gallery featuring the works of Joey Slaughter and myself opened yesterday. I think it went well. The gallery sold 4 of my pieces before the show opened, so that’s pretty cool. I’m not sure how long the work will be up, so if you’re in New Orleans you should take  a trip up Royal Street and check it out.

There are two juried exhibitions that I plan to enter soon: The Surreal Salon 5,  and The Louisiana Purchase: 2nd National Biennial Juried Exhibition. The Surreal Salon is hosted by The Baton Rouge Gallery in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The Louisiana Purchase show is hosted by Louisiana Tech University in Ruston, Louisiana. I was accepted into both shows the last time they went up, so here’s hoping for a second time.

The 17 new panels are still in the gesso stage, so it looks like I wont make my “30 paintings by the end of October” goal. Oh well. I still got a lot done.

busy, busy, busy.

In the last two weeks I shipped 16 paintings to New Orleans, and built 17 new 10×10 panels.

The 177 lbs. of painting that headed to New Orleans are going to open a two-man show at the Graphite Gallery. The other artist I will be exhibiting with is Joey Slaughter. The show opens on the 27th, and will be up for a while, so be sure to stop by if you’re in town.

The 17 panels I made are the last bit of the 30 paintings I intended to complete before the end of October. I’ll keep pushing through, but I don’t think I’m going to meet the goal. I will post pictures as they are completed, so check in with the facebook page. The webpage will be updated soon.

8-11 are finished, and the sale is almost over

During the past two weeks I was able to complete 8-10 of the 10×10’s. Here they are:

between two unlike things, acrylic on panel, 10×10

the bench we sat on a million years ago, acrylic on panel, 10×10

how do we connect? acrylic on panel, 10×10

 

The paintings that are on sale (mentioned in an earlier post) will only be on sale until the end of October. After October 31st, they will return to their previous list price. If you are interested in purchasing while they are on sale, please contact me. I am always will do set up a payment plan.

If you are in Alexandria, Louisiana soon, be sure to stop by the Alexandria Museum of Art. Their annual September Competition is on exhibit, but only for a limited time. Visit their website for more information.
