I've been painting a self portrait with oils the past few days as I've been convinced to shelve the acrylics for oils for at least a few paintings to get a feel for what else I could do. I have been feeling restricted with the acrylics but maybe I just need a little growth or change...
In a way I'm stalling from completing the details of the erotica collection I have to deliver in a few months but I needed a break from the sexual painting I'm working on (below with star). One of the 10 paintings didn't fit with the theme I had going when I looked at all them together so I decided to paint a new one for the upcoming show and pass on the one that doesn't fit. Go bold, I thought, and I consider this painting bold.
So, the Las Vegas art show in August:
I got the contract and details I needed to plan the trip out to Vegas and dates. Tentatively Aug 5th thru Sept 30 my 2nd erotic collection of the ART PORN theme will show at the Las Vegas Erotic Heritage Museum. It's already almost March and time is crunching!
Special Savannah preview in June:
I decided for my friends and those interested who will be nearby, I will host a special weekend showing of the new art work in Savannah! This will be my 3rd sexy exhibit in this lovely, charming, romantic and conservative city. Perhaps I should title it "Sex in the South"? (um, well most of the artwork is about "down south" so it could work in a cheesy way.)
Opening reception - title of show not yet determined and no it will not be "Sex in the South"- will be invitation only so if you're interested in attending Friday June 2nd, email me a blank mail to "firstname.lastname@example.org" with "show invite" in the subject line and I'll ensure you get an invitation to the reception. The Savannah special preview will be open to the public June 3rd & 4th for limited hours so mark your calendars and I'll post details as soon as I figure them out.
I have a list of paintings to do and show themes to do them for. I've had a big jolt of creativity hit me recently and I can't keep up; I can't paint fast enough with good results. Frustrating. It's not like typing cuz I'm super quick there... I saw a chalkboard sign the other day downtown that said, "Life takes time". Yes. Art takes time too.
