Blouin Art: Art-Market Tips: Invest in Posters, Prints, Photos and Women Artists, Barnebys Says

My very existence, my life in the world, seemed like a hallucination.

-Haruki Murakami

The title of todays blog is borrowed from Blouin on-line art magazine. As you know since I dod not want to pay for a subscription, they locked me out of reading the articles. But I thought this was good advice, except for buying posters. I believe people should buy original art from lesser known artists. Unless of course you collect vintage or a certain genre of poster like old circus, etc. That’s my opinion.

Back at ESKFF until the end of June. Hoping to complete the above and another large piece.

Last but not least group show in Santa Fe. Got 6 panels of Lullaby in the show:

June 10-Sept 9. Best part is I don’t have to send the work. It’s a print show.

Stay tuned…

Paper Dolls and Elephants…

paperdollDress2

Started working on the new video poem Elephants again. The above image is part of a Paper Doll insert. May also become a series of works at some point.

This article about Jenny Holzer is interesting. It addresses the fact that we are comfortable with violence against women, but uncomfortable with expressing it.

Distressing News: Unless I subscribe, Blouin Art Info locked me out from reading their articles. Too bad because I liked what they write about. Such is life.

And as always I promise to get Greetings out there, but as always there is some interest from a publisher…then it drops off. So I think the wait is just about over and will revisit this soon. Lullaby is also on the list as well. But that one is still in the process of being put together.

So stay tuned….I’ll be at ESKFF until the end of June.

3 Heads Sharing 1 Brain…

Finally finished the above piece; Whenever Rules Are Imposed- There Will Be Pirates.

I won’t go into the metaphor. It’s been a very interesting time to say the least. Anyway, I was offered a studio for an additional few weeks over at ESKFF, Mana Contemporary!! Very exciting!! Spurred my artistic juices.

Lot’s more to do ahead so as always, stay tuned…

Slowly Getting Back to Business…

Decided to continue completing this piece.

In the meantime I discovered a very valuable article on Brain Pickings.  I love and subscribe to Brain Pickings. It’s a never ending resource for obscure children’s books and insights.

More to come soon so stay tuned….
