And love is in the air. Frankly, I can think of nothing more healing than a partner in your life to support you, have fun with, grow old with. Or even a good cry at a romantic movie.
So, here’s the sketch…no name yet.
If this looks a little familiar, it should. I took my Disco! dancer, and gave her a partner. For those of you who are new to reading this blog, I’ll repost it.
So. love and happiness to all!
So, I’ve started on …what’s the name? Too many to choose from. The rock singer. As I originally thought, I’d do a loud colorful drawing, somewhat in the same vein as this that I did a long time ago.
But it’s the time of year when I turn mellow and sentimental. I call it the bittersweet time of year. It’s the time left of summer between Labor Day, and the Equinox. So, a mellower type of healing appealed to me.
So, perhaps “Love Ballad” will be its title. Tranquility, reflection and all that good stuff.
Here’s the sketch.
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:
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.
Putting together an art show can really sap your energy and creativity.
I’m still enthusiastic about “Construction”, but I’m too tired and distracted to work on it right now.
I went to Birch Coffee (5 East 27th Street) to check the space out again. I was worried before whether I’d have enough art to fill the walls, now I think I may have too much.
I’ve been busy putting together little things to give away to attendees, and this is what I’ve come up with:
Limited Edition signed and number art cards, 2.5 by 3.5 inches:
Gotta come up with some money for refreshments. There’s still time.
Remember, 7-9 pm September 6 is the reception.
