Framing art work

Well, it is official, my next solo show is on the second saturday of October at the Dorsch Gallery in Miami. (I'll announce more on this later) I just spent the afternoon at Frametastic in Hollywood picking frames for these paintings. I am very excited with our choices, Nick is a top notch professional with a good eye. It is quite tricky to pick frames; many people want to choose their own frames or none at all when they purchase my work, but at times they make odd choices. For this show, however I am going all the way in framing them so as to accentuate the right elements in the paintings. I am happy with Nick's experience along with Brook and Tyler's critical eyes. It is going to be a great show! See you there!

Your bank account can be flush with cash, no credit card debts, maybe a bit of a surplus for fun things or investments. That’s how it was for me right after my first solo show in 2005: a sold out show, some local write ups, attention, more interest in my work. Thi…
