Big time, yes. I have mad love for anyone who teaches little kids.
Today I happened upon a new art gallery in Tubac AZ that wants to show my work. I gave them several of my best and am having them framed. I won't be able to eat for a month but in the end it will be worth it.
Tubac is a seasonal tourist town like Jackson Hole WY or Cape May NJ. It's season is in winter rather than summer but thousands of tourists come and spend enormous amounts on mostly junk and some very fine local art including mine now, hopefully.
Every once in a while the universe throws me a bone. Its been this way my entire life.
Thats great news, very exciting!!!!!! Do go out and hustle and seek places to show your paintings or do you just stumble upon and they find you sort of thing.
I think my wife should try to show some of her paintings, but she says she's not good enough. but i think she is just scared a bit.
Congrats on the art work showings, thats super dope!!!!!
Thx for the replies guys. I'm happy that even anyone takes an interest.
I am bound at the moment to a dead end job and have no time to hustle. The luck of the irish and the networking I've done here will carry me further I hope.
A local painting guild I belong to has gifted me a spot in a workshop taught by Andy Evanson. One of my idols I've been following for years. It seems the guild has a heart for struggling artists. That would be me.
Your wife needs to become involved. She needs to put her work up against other and more talanted artists so she can become better. There will always be better artists than us. It's how we hone our skills.
One show will lead to another and contacts made. It's a process. But it doesn't happen if you don't start with baby steps.
Did I mention I got a gallery to represent me? He frames my stuff too. Kinda pricey tho. These are two I did, one was a redo the other a plein air painting just today. Im fascinated by the adobe garden wall in front of the house I live in.
Congratulations Danny Boy! Best of luck to you. I am drawn to the lighting filtering through the bench reflected in the water.
Hi Danny! Have you ever seen the movie "the girl with pearl earring?"
scarllott johansen is in it. It's about a Dutch painter. The Dutch painters , like, Vermeer were AMAzing at lighting. Take it ez man.
Hi Danny, you have a good eye for subject matter and your colors are bold for water color paintings, which makes them stand out from the norm, good luck with the art galleries dont under price your work. Create stories to go with the names for each of your artwork, the customers love that, women buy art the most so make the stories touching and emotional
Thx Amber. I loved that movie. Seen it a few times.
Thx AB...problem with galleries is they need to make money on my work. So for me, the reason they like my stuff is no one knows me yet so I don't make a lot but that'll change. Well maybe someday. I read somewhere that an artist is a success if in the end he only breaks even. I'm happy with that.
Yes its a hard life for making money, and the galleries here want 50% of the sale price which just kills any incentive to use them.
Have you had any success on Instagram?
Not sure who you are referring to but I have never used Instagram
I use Instagram for seeing pix of family, just like FB but I don't post my art there. I'm entering more shows now and concentrating on that. It's dam expensive.
Here's a watercolor I did at St Philips Episcopal Church. Also a photo of the church, designed by a Swiss architect named Joesler who did a lot of beautiful buildings here in AZ.
There's a horse ranch next door. I saw this woman riding and asked if I could take her photo. I did this little color sketch, Turned out she owned the place. I'm into painting horses now.
Omg! Amazing. You are fucking awesome. Keep up the bad ass work dboy!! Your day will come. That watercolor of the church is so realistic looking! Have you considered showing the horse women the sketch you did of her?
I think he posted the same photo twice by accident. The horses look great.
I dig the window with What appears to be a person and flowers. Your ability to think so abstractly and realistically to be able to get that message across , while painting in such a small area is quite impressive!
I recommend a movie I just saw called Loving Vincent “ . It’s about Vincent van Gough. the movie is animated and presented visually as an oil painting. It’s the trippy Van gough brush work style twinkling and pulsating . 0ver 100 artists helped with the brushwork.
