Shameless Self Promotion...2009

I struggle with whether or not to post things, like the thing I'm about to post.

Hopefully anyone that reads this, or has read it in the past will already know that I would never imply that you should or ask any of you to buy my work. If you've been around long, I've probably given you one or more of them.

I feel better that way. Really.

However since the rest of the world could possibly see this (it could happen), I'm going to do it.

To the rest of the world; Until I get to know you better and give you things, I would very much appreciate it, if you bought them. At least one. Part of it goes to charity and the rest goes to Mr. Mans college fund.
Thank you very much.

So, with out further ado: *insert trumpets and things here, it's up to you what sound you here*

*Our first annual (maybe) Black Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Sale*

I warn you now, that next week when I mention this again I will most likely say that, "It seemed like a good idea at the time."

As always, I love to hear from you and get your opinions about any and all of it. I take it all in and think about it and then do what I want any way. After all, art is personal.

Which ones do you like? Which ones do you hate?

Which ones do you think are well done, and which are complete crap?

(oh I know, there are several that are complete crap, it's all personal and believe it or not, everything I still have has been admired and liked by someone at some point or I would have painted over it by now.)


Which ones could you live with?(not just mine, but any artists work you could live with) And Why?

Who thinks I should give up painting and start playing Darts professionally?

What ever....It's all good.

Opinions Please...

I normally don't put anything with my actual identity on this site. Mainly trying to keep this site from getting me fired or sued. But since my professional life has been adjusted, I can't really see what harm it's going to do to introduce one to the other. At least at this point.

No doubt I will come to regret that last statement but here goes anywho...

I have revamped my website and added a lot of new, and old works. Now I would like a few opinions.

Please take a look and let me know what you think. Good or bad. It all helps.

First Thursday...

Laguna Beach has a "First Thursday" art walk every month.

This month I am doing a "Pop Up" event with Arin Contemporary Art. I brought my entire studio.
Sort of a what's it worth to you sale.

About 100 paintings, just to introduce my work to Laguna. We'll see how it goes. I might even take some photos if anything manages to sell. If it doesn't, then all of my work gets a field trip and we try to do another Pop Up some place different next month.
