Well, I'd like to thank everyone who encouraged, discussed, or participated in making art with me this year. I started 2011 with the resolution which I shared with you all, “to both create and share artwork”, and this blog was born.
I got off to a great start with paintings such as these:
|Hills and Mountains 1|
In February, I agreed to be cast in a play. Between work, softball, and the play, painting kind of took a back seat, but I still made a few paintings during the run of the play (through April):
|Samos from Dear and Glorious Physician|
Summer began, and I entered into the Wedding Season to End All Wedding Seasons, or as some call it the Great Wedding Season, or World Wedding Season I. Seriously, I went to a ton of weddings in 2011. Here are some happier paintings:
Also, during the Summer was the Orange County Fair, of which demonstrated at for the eighth consecutive year. My self portrait was displayed in the gallery and I had fun:
|Foot Throwing at the OC Fair|
|The red clay pieces were not made with my feet.|
Nearing the end of the year, with weddings behind me, and softball coming to a close, I embarked on a project, making many small (5"x7") paintings in series and arranging them. Here are some of the results:
Well, that's 2011 in a nutshell. I've already got a couple of posts ready for 2012, and some ideas in my head. I look forward to sharing with you all in the new year.
