Old S#!+

The sun came up today and I was there to see it. Work is dull and so am I. Later I'll take some in focus shots... probably of tequila. Back to drawing, blah, blah, blah

Sorry that these old images are a little out of focus. I'll shoot some new ones soon. The weather is great today. I've been drawing again and thinking about new sculptures. I sanded and textured a wall today, tomorrow I'll paint it. I need to get outside and enjoy the nice weather... later

A couple of pages from my last sketchbook. The little girl was a child we took care of for a couple of years. She liked to read or pretended to at least. I guess the other page was an attempt at world politics. I haven't picked up a sketchbook for a few weeks now... I better get busy.

No work tomorrow, freedom. I'll stop by the gallery and start hauling back my stuff. I sold a few, but not enough to generate that truly good feeling. The search starts for finding another gallery. This place wants me to show again when they have a new space... I told them I'd think about it. I've been searching through a lot of artist blogs... there are so many great artists out there. Sounds like many of them are actually making a living at it. What's the secret? Blah, blah, blah...

Out of focus, more old sketches from the books that keep me sane. I need to get busy and start making more new art. Tonight I'll visit with friends, tomorrow a meeting to discuss a new art school in town, Friday tear down the show where my stuff was at.

Waiting for another sketchbook from the guys at Art House in Atlanta. These were in the sketchbook project: Fear, last October. The new project will be "How to save the world". Give me some ideas and maybe I'll come up with a sketch. I have a bunch planned out already but could always use some new angles.

Another work week over... another class taught. The weather was great today, hopefully it just keeps getting better. I was informed today, that all the stuff has to come out of the gallery by midday on the 18th. So next Friday I'll be busy hauling off what didn't sell. This weekend I'm going to start on some new work...

Dudes and Dudettes,

Sold another piece at the gallery. The third most expensive one sold today. With any luck a couple more might be sold prior to next Friday. I really wish the stuff could stay up on the wall for the whole month, but that's the breaks...

The days are getting longer and temperatures are finally starting to warm-up. Haven't made any new sculptures or drawings lately. Taxes are done but not sent in. Life is moving at a snail's pace. I head to Miami next month for about a week... by then, things should start moving quicker...

Tuesday, felt like two days... Work is still a drag, need some new excitement. Got a message from some lady who said she is a writer. She wants to ask me questions about art and the process I use. Later tonight or tomorrow I'll give her a call. Right now I'm exhausted and feel like taking a short nap.

Little Boy

I don't like Mondays... Work lasted entirely too long today. I really should be working on some new sculptures and drawings. To get inspired I am going for a walk in the woods, maybe I'll see something to get me out of this rut.

Sunday, April 6, 2008

Listening to the new REM CD and going through older sketchbooks. Realized I never shot any photos of a lot of drawings I liked. There were more that made me wonder what I was thinking. I'll keep posting stuff, maybe somebody will see it and make a comment, until I run out of new and old "art". Today my family returns from Seattle, so I better clean-up around here...

Some shots of my stuff prior to the doors opening...

Friday, April 4, 2008

Made it through the day and now into the night. Over 300 people attended the opening tonight. I guess that's not bad. According to the gallery that was above average. It rained throughout the evening, but there was a constant flow of people. I made a lot of contacts. One piece sold right away and another person said they were coming back tomorrow to buy a piece (I'll believe it when it happens). There were a few more that said they wanted to buy, and asked how long the show would be up. It is supposed to run through the end of month, but since the building is being remodeled, the show will come down on the 18th. Only two weeks... I had a lot of people hanging around my work and wanting to talk about it. Hopefully the interest sparks more sales... The night is over and I'm at home drinking wine, goodnight...

One more day till show time... Teach class tomorrow then run home shower and get to the gallery. I hope I don't make a total fool of myself.

Wednesday, April 2, 2008

Took my work down to the gallery... not all of it fit... brought a few pieces home. I need to cut down a couple pedestals for two of my sculptures, or leave them on the ground. Last night was a weird one. I walked around down town in a haze. My mind was troubled about something, but I couldn't quite figure out why. Maybe I can clear the funk tonight.
