-Group Show

This Coming Saturday is Jonathan Levine Gallery's Five Year Anniversary Group Exhibition
February 27 to March 27, 2010.
Opening Reception: Sat. 27th from 7-9pm.

Literally ton's of artists are showing(If everyone's weight averaged out at 150 lbs, it would be almost 3 tons!)
The list of artists are at the bottom of the post.
Here's my piece below.

"Meigh" 20"x24" oil on wood.

While this was being varnished, I took a shot of the frame on a plastic hook in my studio so i could Photoshop the painting in for the blog.

As I was cropping the background out I thought the tote and shadow looked cool when framed. Out of context with the surroundings.

See.

-Blue Sky Noise

Hello.
First, sorry I've been playing hookie the past few weeks, there's sort of an excuse at the bottom of this post...
But for the main meat, I'd like to say congrats and thanks to Circa Survive for having me do the artwork for their upcoming album Blue Sky Noise, being put out by Atlantic Records in April.

You can pre-order the album with a limited edition lithograph HERE. I'm NOT going to be putting any prints out myself so this is your only chance.


"Blue Sky Noise" oil on wood 36"x36"
and detail below


When I do a sketch I transfer the drawing onto wood. This is the Saralâ„¢ Transfer paper that I used for it, and a few other paintings. I like the way they look.


Now, there were so many consecutive "filler" posts that I became irritated by the quantity vs.(lack of)quality. I'm gonna continue the with Monday's from here on out though they may just be links to other artists, random experiments, or pictures of food etc.. A combination of streamlining my site and working on my neglected Youtube, and Flickr are still in the works.
esao.
