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.
The art reception is over, and now I’m a famous artist! Or, not, depends on how delusional I am on any given day.
The reception went well. Turned out to be just a few friends, and we all had a nice visit.
Just what I was expecting, I don’t know. I was incredibly anxious on the way to Birch Coffee, and on the verge of hyperventilating. Frankly, I was going back and forth between visions of having all my work down,lined up against the wall, and being instructed to get it the hell out! Or the other swing, a crowd of people, just waiting to meet the newly discovered great artist. So, everything turned out okay, no complaints here.
Thanks to all my friends who came.
The one thing left, is which picture will be left behind. As part of the agreement, Birch Coffee will take one of my drawings in exchange for displaying my work. I kept the work out of the shop that I really wanted to keep.
Bets from my friends as to which will go: House at Sunrise
I should start a pool.
Another thing I’ve decided, is to make “Embracing my Inner Cat”, as not for sale. I’ve started using it as a trademark, and also, it is a picture of my dear cat, Hannako. For those of you who have never seen it:
“Construction” had been finished, but I’m waiting for better light to photograph it.
