March 27, 2018 - New Show Schedule and Other Happenings

I had no idea how long it had been since I updated this blog - please accept my apologies, everyone!

The second half of 2017 was hectic as always, with quite a bit of travelling. I did shows in KY, OH, MI, PA, and NC with mixed results sales-wise also picking up a few commission projects along the way. One addition to my schedule was the GoodGuys Rod & Custom event at Charlotte Motor Speedway, right here at home. I had not done this event in quite a few years, so I decided to give it a go, and I'm pretty sure I'll try it again this year. New for this year will be The Elegance at Hershey and an SVRA vintage/historic race weekend at the Speedway in Indy. I'm very much looking forward to both of these new adventures.

Speaking of trying again, I have once again been invited to show my work as a guest artist with the Automotive Fine Art Society at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance this year! Very excited to do this again - August 24-26. Also, I got one of my water colors ("Formerly Elegant") accepted into the Annual Exhibit of the National Watercolor Society. I won't be able to attend the show in person, but the exhibit will be on display at NWS home gallery in San Pedro, Ca from May 3 through June 30.

I am working furiously trying to finish new pieces for Pebble Beach, and the other upcoming events. A couple more Corvette paintings for Bloomington Gold, Indy Roadster for SVRA, plus commissions I am still working on. One really interesting commission that is in progress is a guitar painting for an amazing luthier, Mr. Mark Campellone. Hope I can do his beautiful archtop guitar justice. Haven't added to my schedule yet, but if I can manage to finish more guitar paintings in the coming weeks/months, I may venture out to a guitar show or two to test the waters.
