The Portrait Show, 2013 was on Friday night. Not a big turnout….very cold nasty rain. I wasn’t really happy with where my pictures were hung, I don’t think many people saw them. Therefore, I gave up any hope of the People’s Choice Award. But at any rate, here’s some photos:
This is the website for the organization the winged horse is for;
Doing some work for my friend’s charity….here’s a sketch of a winged horse. It’s being revised to have a little girl on the back, and lettering :Jessica Rekos, Angel of Sandy Hook. It’s a start.
Most of you have seen this, but it’s the story of a woman who paints portraits of fallen soldiers as a gift for their families.
Just to let you know, my work will be in the Greenpoint Gallery’s portrait show. I am exhibiting “Embracing My Inner Cat” and “Disco”.
Here’s a little bit about the gallery and show.
It’s a one night show. It starts at 8:00 pm and goes into the wee hours. I’ll check in for a while, but doubt I’ll be around for the whole thing. At midnight, they do a people’s choice award, but I don’t really expect to win. My work is not the “Knock ‘Em Dead”, kind of work that usually wins. Subtlety doesn’t work well with crowds, wine, live music, etc. Hopefully, there will just be people who enjoy my work there, and possibly a sale.
I’m starting on a new healing project. A friend and her daughter are starting a new project. The story goes like this:
My friend’s daughter was giving riding lessons to a young girl named Jessica. Unfortunately, she was killed in the Newtown, CT massacre. So, in her memory, we are raising funds to give riding lessons to underprivelidged children. So, “Cloud Over Greenwich” will have it’s title changed to “Jessica’s Home”. We will be offering full-sized prints. When this becomes available, I will post a link.
