Happy Frankenstein Friday! We finished hanging the show late yesterday. If I do say so myself it looks marvelous. I am calm, so much calmer than I am when I have years or months to prep for a show. All that stressing out is so unnecessary. Maybe I even learned something.
The show opens tonight so come on down, see some art and get a Taco from Nate's Taco Truck.
Onward friends!..and have a lovely weekend.

Today I am meeting up with my gallery director to set up a show for this Friday. It is sort of a Pop-show as in Pop-quiz, not Pop art although some of my work could be called Pop art. She is allotting me half of the gallery space at the Satellite Eric Schindler Gallery at 8 West Broad Street, RVA. It is part of the Art-Walk, First Friday festivities. The other half of the space will show works by Thomas Van Auken in addition there will be beautiful ceramics by Lisa Taranto.
Thomas Van Auken's paintings are night scenes, large in scale, also very-very nice I might add. To complement his work, I have selected paintings that also deal with night-time light, going as far back to the early 90's.
I will be hanging the show today, not sure what will make the cut, but I have selected about 20 paintings, we will whittle it down and put together the best arrangement possible.
Opening night is this Friday.

I finished the desk, painted it and am sitting at it writing right now. The first step in turning this room into a proper Art office. I love my new little desk. Next I will make a new perch for Truman using the same wood,(salvaged from Truman's NY living enclosure). She loves watching the computer screen change images from her perch. I love the fact that soon I will be able to get my files out of boxes that are currently stashed all over the house and organized them. Organization will provide some clarity and open a space for new work. This was a big first baby step towards good things!
