Happy 2011, everyone! I trust you all had a wonderful New Years — whether it was spent on vacation, with family & friends, or just doing something you enjoyed, I hope it was all that you had wished it to be! (And if not, there’s always next year) ;-)
After the dust finally settled from the holiday season, it’s right back to work for yours truly. I’m really looking forward to sharing some great stuff with you this year: I have some fantastic shows lined up in the coming months, and I’m excited about the work I’m creating for them.
Probably the show I’m most looking forward to within the next couple months is my exhibit at Hold UP Art Gallery in Los Angeles, entitled “some of its parts”, and opening March 5th! This coming week, the official “press blitz” about the show will begin, but I’m really enthusiastic about one part of it: I’ll be releasing my very first limited edition print! Yep, after over a decade, it’s finally happening! During a recent meeting with the gallery, we decided that the exhibit was going to be so special (it’s been 4 years since my last gallery show in L.A…a proper homecoming!), that it would be great to commemorate it with a very limited print.
Soooooo, today I dropped off the original canvas of my piece “blather. wince. REPEAT.” to the gallery (shown below), and high quality prints are being made…and in a very limited signed & numbered edition of only 37 pieces. The original canvas (which will also be available at the show) measures 24 x 30″, but I believe the prints will be a healthy 18 x 24″!
As this will be my very first limited edition print, I’m using it as a “litmus test” to determine whether I’ll be making more prints in the future, but I think that’s a very distinct possibility, as after I made mention today on Twitter that I would be releasing a print, I’ve already had several people want to reserve one, if not two of them! So, this is going to be a very interesting experiment for me…
**If you’d like to reserve one of the 37 prints, feel free to contact Brian Lee, curator & co-owner of Hold UP Art Gallery, and let him know you’re interested in one of the pieces. You can contact him via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 213.221.4585.
They recently revamped their website as well (looks great!), and 8 paintings of mine are now available via their website at www.holdupart.com, as well…
One last thing: last month I started a Tumblr blog! I take so many photos and find so many weird things when I surf the web, I wanted an outlet to post them, so I created a Tumblr. It’s not like this blog that you’re reading right now…the Tumblr is basically just a photo journal of me and my life and little things I find online that I deem interesting, freaky, etc, etc. So, check it out…follow me on Tumblr at http://thh70.tumblr.com! Enjoy!
Here’s to a rockin’ 2011 filled with love, peace, health, and happiness!!!
