It Takes Two to Tango

There are two main components to being an artist. The first is obviously creating art. The second is the one that I, and many other artists, struggle with. The second is promoting your art.

I’ve been spending the past month focusing on the promotion of my work. It certainly has been paying off. I have my first solo exhibition at the Ocean City Arts Center March 2012. My drawings are now on sale at the Noyes Museum of Art’s gift shop. Currently, my work is showing in three group shows. People are posting my works in their tumblrs and pinterests. It feels good to be appreciated. Thank you for taking the time to look at my work. Thank you for taking the time to tell others about my work. It means the world to me.

Unfortunately, as I’ve been promoting my work, the time for creation of work has diminished. Illustrations like the one above are all I’ve had time to paint. Hopefully within the next week or so I’ll be able to make a serious painting.

Drawing Distraction

This drawing is being posted as a distraction from the fact that I haven’t updated in almost a month. It is not that I have not been making art. I have been painting every day. I’ve been painting so much that updating my blog has not been a priority. Soon, within a week or two, I will be posting pictures of the largest painting I’ve ever created. It is a sixty foot mural, and it is almost complete. Until then, here is an ink drawing of a kitchen stove.

 

Sketchbook Weekend

Sometimes sketchbook Saturday happens on Sunday. Both of these drawings were made in a parking lot while waiting to meet up with friends for dinner. Different parking lots, different friends, different restaurants.

Yesterday, I recieved two new sketchbooks from my awesome supplier.  Can’t wait to fill them.
