Perfection before the wrath of creation

I realized as I was naming the tile of this post that it could be entirely misconstrued as religious. While I had no intention of allusions to the dogma, perhaps my subconscious mind was making a sarcastic reference to the bible. I have been told that sarcasm is never fully in jest.

So the true reason for the post title is that it is not finished, and fear that I may not be able to preserve any of its current attributes once I begin painting again. So I post this to recall the moment before better outspoke acceptable.

Summertime!

I know it’s the end of June and I am only now proclaiming summer’s presence, but I have finally tacked down all the cursory work that needed to get done i.e. school, moving, travelling to Tom Tom Fest, travelling to California, pulling myself away from California, delve back into cycling, my day job, etc…

Having finished these tasks, I can once again immerse myself into art, hence the latest piece, Flagella. I actually quenched this canvas with the intent of a fertility piece for the marriage of my friends Douglas and Natalia Fullerton. Well some may pose that I am no longer and abstract artist. But nonetheless, they have allowed it into there home, where it may serve its purpose in the world… ideally when they see fit. I am also working on a 3′ x 5′ piece for the bedroom area. I would discuss my ideas about it, but my paintings always evolve into something incomprehensible to the founding brush stroke.

In other news, the man-with-the-plan… to promote my art, Ashton Erler, is moving up to NYC in July! Debauchery may ensue. But we will have a good time.

Coming Together

So it has taken some time, but Requisite Art is finally up and running! Got the site presentable with an overwhelming thanks to Ashton Erler, the FaceBook page up, and am waiting for Tom Tom Founders Festival to launch (Another huge shout out to Ashton for assisting me in getting a featured artist spot there). If you get the chance to go, it should be a great show: excellent music, innovative art, and of course Charlottesville is a fantastic place to be.
