you-will-know-handtext.jpg Yes, yes, I have been quiet this month in this blog. Silence is my natural repose and volubleness is a higher energy state that I can surge into but mania always ebbs.

The first week after the opening was post partum funk, a feeling every artist is familiar with. It was also a little vacay after a spring and summer painting surge. The Fall openings devoured my time, and it was great to get out of my skin and see the shows about town, which, by the way, is itself a almost a full time job. The second week was a slow crank back into the studio, chops erode quickly, and the third was full strength again, a great feeling. More reports on what happened to come to this blog very soon.

In the meantime, my show at Hionas Gallery, NYC is in its' final week, and I hope that you stop by and check out the paintings if you are in town.

Titulos

Hionas-PTG-line-up.jpg Titles.

These are the paintings installed in the show at Hionas Gallery, LES/NYC, September 7-October 5, 2014.

Did you know that I use this blog as a title reservoir? After I finish a painting, I scroll through the blog roughly during the time frame of its' making, searching for titles that jump out to me. It is another method of divination, instead of a dousing rod, I use a scroll pad. Usually, always in fact, an appropriate title jumps out to me, insistently.

If you see my paintings as posted in this blog, please note that the titles are hyperlinked. (Here, for example.) I am delighted by the meaningfulness of this, the dimensions of which I leave to others to uncover if they care to.

Opening Today

This afternoon, Sunday, September 7, 2014 between 5 and 7pm at Hionas Gallery, 127 Forsyth Street, NYC 10002, Peter Hinoas and I will open a solo show of my paintings.

I'd love to see you there!

The show was hung last week and tweaked several times since. While I could have shot a walk through video of the installation, I had a virtual model of the gallery in a SketchUp file, so I hammered out a virtual tour for shits and giggles, in anticipation of tonight's opening.
