Friday’s opening was an enjoyable one, thanks to the large crowd that didn’t seem to want to go home. I had a real sense of accomplishment seeing the 12 pieces on the wall and under the lights, with six of the paintings being finished very recently– some as late as March 2nd. Many thanks to Ellen Gochnour for orchestrating the exhibition, which will be on view through March 26. I have included images of the most recent work, below.
Tonight I’ll be putting the finishing touches on two final paintings for Friday’s opening at Fontbonne University Gallery of Art. Although I do have a habit of working up to the last minute, it is not due to procrastination. I just enjoy taking full advantage of the challenge posed by a firm deadline, and am always eager to squeeze in the most recent pieces. At this point it looks like I will be showing 11 paintings (5 brand new) and one bench. In the following weeks I hope to be updating the site with all of the new work and a larger selection of older work, too.
