No new art to post just yet... just a few updates on what I'm up to lately.
Wow... so lots of stuff going on. First, I went to my first meeting with Summit Art in Lee's Summit so I could see what they're like and get an idea of what they do around the K.C. area. And from what it sounds like, some pretty big things are starting to happen with them, and it is the perfect time to join them as a member. So I've decided to do so. I'll be submitting my application soon, and they'll be having a jury review a sample of my work in May. I'm pretty excited, and hoping you all will be seeing a lot more of my work hanging up in galleries in the area a lot more often.
Apparently, some people are seeing my work that is currently exhibiting at Blue Springs City Hall. I received an email this week from one such person who is helping to organize an art/antique show on April 28 in Blue Springs, and she has invited me to participate (even though the official app deadline has passed, she's offering me the opportunity anyway.. pretty cool). I'm not sure yet if I'll be able to do it, but if I can I will let everyone know soon.
Speaking of, if you haven't seen my paintings at the Blue Springs City Hall yet, I hope you will! They are my two award-winning paintings from the Blue Springs Art Show, The Artist and Juan de Pareja, and they will be there until the afternoon of April 20th.
In other art show news, I am looking into applying for a show that will take place in... wait for it... Nashville, TN! The show is called Artclectic, and it is an indoor show (one of the main reasons I'm looking into it). The show itself takes place in October, however the deadline to apply is April 27th. So it is really just a matter of deciding which paintings I want to submit, and making sure I have good quality digital images of them to send with my app. From the looks of it, they don't appear to get a whole lot of contemporary realist paintings, so this could be interesting. Hopefully they'll like what I have to offer.
So that is all for now, stay tuned for more paintings soon!
