New ideas

I’ve been playing around with some new ideas, and I think I’m liking it.  One of the benefits of having this studio and time out in the community at P22 is that I get to practice art.  Right?  I mean if you want to be good at something, you have to keep practicing, exploring andContinue reading “New ideas”

Summer time in the Studio

It’s my first week in my studio since I don’t know when.  It’s allowed me to work on a lot of projects that have been pushed to the side or stuck in my head.  This week I’ve already made some movement on some large paintings that should have been completed months ago, but I guessContinue reading “Summer time in the Studio”

So, it is summer! I know I’m a few days late, but I’ve finally been able to create a time when you can come see me in my studio!  I’m really excited about working there regularly throughout the season hope you’ll stop by.

Making art in public

For so long I’ve been used to making art in the comfort of my own home. This year I’ve been offered the opportunity to take my art public.  It can be a bit daunting.  I’ve always thought it’s been important to make are for oneself, but I never really considered art for the masses.  EvenContinue reading “Making art in public”

On view

I’ve been shifting around some art at the Workhouse today.  I didn’t have much time to work on things, but I have been given some space to showcase some work that I had done previously.  If you stop by you can see a few pieces right when you walk in to Block 6.  I alsoContinue reading “On view”

Saturday Studio session

This weekend I spent the early part of my afternoon at Palette 22.  I had a really nice time working on some new paintings.  I started using my newspapers I brought back from India, and I’m making a few small guys while I’m an artist in residence at the restaurant.  It was fun meeting andContinue reading “Saturday Studio session”

Where did the week go?

It’s Friday tomorrow and I realize I only spent a few hours in the studio this week.  So sad, really.  There will be a time when I will be able to be there regularly.  This week I managed to start on a new painting.  This will be the first larger one I’ve started since I’veContinue reading “Where did the week go?”

I’m in

This week has been so busy, but in a good way.  I made it to the studio a few times this week and also started a new “job”.  It’s not really a full time job, more like an artist gig to get out into the community.  I’m now working as an Artist in Residency withContinue reading “I’m in”

Studio update

I’m moved into my new studio space over at the Workhouse Art Center in Lorton, Virginia.  Of course there is more settling in to do, but I managed to get a bit of work done today.  After dropping supplies off all week, it was nice to get busy on my art again.  The move wentContinue reading “Studio update”

Great News!

I just got word that I will have some of my pieces shown at Palette 22.  It’s a new restaurant that will open up in February of this year in Shirlington, Virginia.  The restaurant is part of an interesting movement to work with local artists to show their work.  Part of this unique experience willContinue reading “Great News!”
