So, the interview at NBC studios was incredible! I think the funniest thing is that I spend my career trying to piece together what Jackson Pollock deconstructed, and yet in my every bit of publicity, Jackson manages to eke his way in . Pollock was often heard to say “I just gotta get Picasso off my back.” I’m often heard saying “I’m more interested in the people who built the Pantheon, than the ones who tore it down.”
The Washington Square Outdoor Show went very well, with a few nice sales to a few new buyers. I’m now wrapping up a semester of classes at the McEvoy Studio, framing a couple dozen works, packing a crate full of paintings and shipping them to an exhibition in California, locking in a portrait demo outside of San Francisco, forging ahead with the”Nine Portraits of Islip”, formulating a proposal for a large painting in a major hospital, finalizing a large commission for a church on the west coast… forgive me for the bloglessness! Things are wonderful, but lark of mercy, things are busy. Good busy, though, with lots and lots of painting!
You know, in relocating my studio to Islip, my hope was to be able to approach my art career in the same fashion that the Vietcong waged guerrilla warfare. Paint, paint, paint while in the thick of the suburban jungles of mid Long Island, then launch sporadic attacks on urban fronts with finely tuned paintings. So far, all is going according to plan, because I am able to put in a good nine hours of painting at the studio, and still bike home in time for soccer practice with Liam and Evan.
