Apologies to my Blog Commenters

I just discovered that my new blog was not notifying me of any new comments as they were being submitted, so I have a backlog of unapproved comments from the past two months.

This was clearly a mistake, as I always made it a point to answer every single comment. I'm very sorry if any of you felt neglected. It will take me a few days to go through each post, sift though any spam, approve the legitimate comments, and reply to every single one.

I appreciate everyone's feedback very much and hope you will continue commenting on my posts in the future. 

Lesson learned!


 

Go Big or Go Home!

"Go Big or Go home" is an expression that resonates in my mind while working on my largest piece so far. After a very busy summer it's really nice to be back in my studio doing what I love to do.

I had decided to redo "In Between" four times as big on canvas. Below is a picture of the two artworks, at about the same stage of completion. You can use my pencil trays as a visual reference to get an idea of the actual size of my latest piece (24" x 48"). 

I will follow up soon with more progress photos and, at the end, I will review my technique of working with canvas and the Icarus board. Stay tuned! 

On a very positive note, sales of my artworks were very strong this summer. I shipped giclees and originals to many US States and to Australia, South Africa, Czech Republic, and the United Kingdom. Thank you to all my collectors!
