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!
I am thinking of a general sense on how I perceive the subjects in my paintings. I can only put a stream of experiences to describe the image: the song by Frank Sinatra, a barely remembered poem about Chicago..something about big shoulders, pop culture thoughts like prohibition and gansters, great pizza, baseball, lots of guys that look like me (baseball cap, bearded, slight beer belly) Guinness, el trains, bridges, biting cold etc.. Does this make sense?
