I know, I know, it's been a long time again. Well, between work, re-injuring myself, and an issue with internal organs, I am sharing a few things of recent. Yes, still painting, and still doing figure drawing as well as modeling for them at times. I was also accepted into a ReNude fundraiser for Planned Parenthood. Nude In Blue was selected.
And here are a couple of the recent pieces,
I also sold one as well,
And of course still being harassed by a guy who really wants a piece, but is trying to negotiate a cheaper price. Offended.
Yes, it has been a long time once again. Between trying to find a job that works with my injury, daily life, working very hard to actually function in a closet studio, I think I finally have something. I have also been drawing, selling, even modeled one night, and dealing with a tab bit of depression. But we all have issues, so here is the praise and the recent works.
Well, again, it's been a while, though many things are happening. First, I was involved with a sale when I arrived in the Charleston area, sold a piece, entered three pieces into the MOJA Festival, and one was chosen.
Found a figure drawing group, I have gone twice now since they meet once a month, produced some nice drawings, the first time, the next time ended up as the model.
Joined the Charleston Artists Guild, was able to be juried into the gallery, though put on a waiting list for space and was accepted. Was also selected to show a piece in the 2013 People's Choice Art Exhibit. Pretty amazing. Which I chose this piece for the show.
Went to yet another figure drawing session at a local gallery called REDUX, as well as to be involved with an exhibition there. They are also having a Art Yard Sale this weekend which I plan on attending to sell some of the older smaller pieces I have as well as cards. Though from the drawing session I created this.
I also have a piece
that is waiting to be sold once the person arrives back into town next week. Nude in Blue.
So, not only is life wonderful down here in Charleston, SC, it has also welcomed me with open arms with my artwork. I guess it was just time for me to grow. Indiana helped me to be what I am, it was up to me to spread my wings and fly with the talent God gave me. With that said, I am off to create some art.
