here are the latest that just got taken down to the Gallery on Greene. the light has been gorgeous the past few weeks and temps are in the 80's. a plein air painters dream. the nerves start up the last week before delivering a huge body of work that hundreds will be scrutinizing soon. the self doubt about your true ability starts to nag at you, because you know the way you see your ability is entirely different from what it really is. just part of the human condition for emotional survival I guess. will I sell?, will I bomb?, why did I make that shape that color, it should have been that color. that little voice that says you suck, advantageously countering our huge ego that says youre pretty amazing and painting the best you ever have. neither are correct and both are correct at the same time. self doubt. the antidote for egotistical pride
had a demonstration tonite at the Seam Shoppe in Key West. it was part of the monthly Walk on White art walk. got to see some folks who like my work and showed up to see how I do a painting start to finish. actually got a 12x16 done and handed out lots of business cards. fulltime artists have to constantly be promoting themselves. thanks cindy for the opportunity to do that in your shop tonite!
just dropped these off at the Gallery on Greene for my upcoming show. having a ball painting these big ones out on the street. I clamp the wet painting to my bicycle basket and go several days in a row at the same time. seem to be accentuating the color more this year than in years past.
The reception will be march 8th from 5-9 at The Gallery on Greene, 600 Greene St. Key West. come check it out if youre in town.
