By now, if you’re a regular here, you know this site is all about the art — the art of trucks! (haha).
I have a lot of blogs, with different angles on my many interests (here are ALL my links). I started this blog to learn WordPress, in anticipation of changing my art website to a WordPress platform. Mission (more or less) accomplished.
My latest art (promotional) activity has been focused on art fairs, since I no longer am with a gallery.
I took the trucks to The Beverly Hills Art Show two weeks ago and didn’t sell any. Boo.
This week, I’ve been working on an application for the Luxembourg Art Prize and uploading my work to Saatchi Art. I’m concentrating on my 2014 On the Edge: US series and have been updating all the images in a new desktop version of Waterlogue[I was comped a copy for being a beta tester]. This new version has been great for my road trip photos, since I like need to edit them and I am able to do a much better job in Photoshop vs editing on my phone, which I currently do for the trucks.
This is not new. If you look closely, you’ll see some dirty fingerprints and a crease from a bulldog clip.
This photo has been clipped to an unfinished pastel that I stuck behind my “studio” [ie bedroom] door for six years. SIX YEARS!
In June 2010, I had worked on this during a week-long residency at Dorland Mountain Arts Colony. I was recovering from a mastectomy and frantically making some art before starting chemo. [I’m fully recovered, btw. I won, cancer lost.] Why unfinished? If I remember correctly, I didn’t have the proper red pastel on hand. The clouds were looking too orange and it was too similar to Big Orange Cloud from the same series.
Looks like I’ve got some reds in the pastel box now:
