Well, here we are a week into November. I’m always blown away at how quick the year goes by, and also excited that I accomplished so many amazing things throughout the year. I may do a recap post of all my projects as we get closer to the end of this year. I’m sure the list will be long.
For now, I’d like to post a little about whats coming up. I have two exhibits happening in the next two weeks. The first one, titled “Fight or Flight,” is at The Lola Gallery in the Inglewood neighborhood. This is a cool space/gallery inside the garage of artist Mike Mitchell (CowboyConcept). I expect it to be an top notch event as that this space has gotten some great press for being one of the cool non-traditional gallery spaces in Nashville. The reception is Saturday November 9th, from 6-9pm. More about the event on my events page.
Another exhibit I’m involved with is a pop-up show with Four Artist TN. We had a successful show at Blue Fig during the Art Crawl, and wanted to offer something a little easier to attend for those that don’t like the logistics of making it downtown. This will happen in the Nations neighborhood, just a short drive from downtown Nashville. It’s in a residence, so there will be plenty of street parking. We are also planning artist talks. Two of us will talk at 6:00, and the other two at 7:00. It’s a great opportunity to get to know the artist and learn more about their work. This event is also on my events page.
I also need to mention Artclectic 2019. I had another amazing time and truly enjoy getting to meet new art lovers and some recent collectors. I went in to the show with several new paintings that focused on Nashville neon signs, entertainers, and architecture. I feel honored to get to be at this show. They always take such good care of the artist and the patrons.
One last thing I’d like to share before getting back to the studio is my latest commission piece. That’s the image attached to this blog post. “On Watch” is a family of owls my client had visit their property and they wanted a way of remembering how cool it was to be able to witness such beautiful creatures. I enjoyed getting to work on something a little different from my normal work. This wasn’t my first nature scene, but it was a first on this scale. Being able to paint large allows me to try some different techniques that add a little extra to the piece.
Thanks for dropping in to catch up. I’m going to sign off for now and get back to work. I hope you find time to drop in to one of my future exhibits and say hi. Until next time, I’ll see you on social media:) RLP
