New and improved...now with 600% more gesso!

Excited to have been quoted in my buddy Heather Darcy Bandari's newly revised and expanded ART/WORK: Everything You Need to Know (and Do) As You Pursue Your Art Career published by Simon & Schuster. Heather very kindly included a couple of my go-to nuggets of wisdom in the original edition, and I was able to sneak another nugget in the updated version. Since the first edition was published in 2009, Art/Work has become the definitive professional practice guide for artists, curators, museum professionals, students, collectors and gallerists and I feel very lucky to have made a few small contributions.

 

Also chugging along in the studio, slowly but surely. The new panels are complicated enough to take a bit of time to get the edges prepped. But the first one is gessoed (6 coats...yikes!) and ready for paint. Have a couple of good ideas for edge treatment, ground gradient, and some starting images...

Showing in Chicago with Aron Packer Projects this spring (details TBA) so need to get crack-a-lackin' on these panels...
