This will be my last post for the next week or so as I head off to California for my show, The Waking Moment, this coming Saturday, December 1, at the Just Looking Gallery in San Luis Obispo. It’ll be my first glimpse of seeing my work hanging at the gallery. It will also be the first time I will get to meet the collectors there, something I am eager to do. It’s always interesting to meet people who are drawn to the work, especially those from a distance away. I like to see how they respond to the work, to see if they see it in the same way as those collectors I have come to know a bit over the years at those galleries that have represented me for many years.
I am sure there is a similarity in the way they see the work. That only makes sense because of the consistency that I try to provide in the work and my messaging of it. But I am always looking for a new perspective on it that I may have missed, one that someone from a different geography might provide. As with everything, we shall see.
If you’re in the SLO area at the end of this week, please stop in at the Just Looking Gallery and say hello. On Friday, Saturday and Sunday, I will be in the gallery for a period of time outside of Saturday night’s opening for those who would like to discuss the work but might not be able to make the opening. Hope to see you there!
The painting shown here is Moment, an 8″ by 14″ on paper which was the piece selected for the invitation.
